I wanted to create a thread to encompass my experiences with freewheel unicycling. Heretofore these have been spread out throughout a variety of threads in the last few months:
- Coker freewheel hub on a uni. (jona’s thread about the possibility of using the Coker freewheel hub on a unicycle which turned into a more general freewheel discussion, where I got my first freewheel hub from lobbybopster, and where dmacuni posted the availability of the Nimbus Drift Trike hubs.)
- Why are disc brakes good for a unicycle? (My thread asking some questions about disc brakes which turned into a more general freewheel discussion.)
- My newest 36er adventure begins today… (Killian’s experience building and riding the first - as far as I know - 36" freewheel unicycle.)
I’ve also created some posts in Pictures of your latest ride and it was a recent post that made me want to create a separate thread so as not to hijack that one. I hope everyone feels free to post here about their own adventures in freewheeling but of course you can create your own threads as you see fit or post to other existing ones. Besides Killian, Nurse Ben has put together a freewheel unicycle (which I’ve purchased), kenzyme2418 has made one out of a Huffy Slider, and Carina is working on one of her own. I’d love to hear anyone else’s recent experience with making or riding a freewheel unicycle. I’m sure there are people outside this forum as well. After burning through a couple 20" freewheels I currently have a 26" and a 36".
