This was the most difficult unicycling challenge I’ve ever attempted, and definitely a personal record for me. The climbs ranged from 31% to a seemingly impossible 41% grade! To be honest, after the very first climb I think it was mostly sheer will power and adrenaline that kept me going to do the next 9, and somehow I managed to climb all 10 streets on the first attempt. There’s a pretty good chance that you will “feel my pain” watching this video…
Nicely done. That is one way to keep you fit and feeling younger.
What are the specs on the 29er wheel in the last section, the tire looks so small and the Frame looks like it could take much larger wheel.
I will say: “Respect!”
When I try to ride some steeper uphills, at some point the wheel just locks up and I tumble off. You handle it very well.
Amazing. I assume there is no easy way to know/determine the grade of a given hill apart from knowing from open source city data (or with a level and calculator like I just found on a youtube video)? Also grade is probably rarely constant…
Congratulations Terry!! Great job!!
Each street’s grade percentage is taken at various points and averaged out. I used my clinometer app on some of the streets and it was pretty much the same result.
Joshua’s 29er is on a KH 36er frame and it has a 700c rim and tire. I found it very twitchy and hard to control, likely because the psi was so high there was minimal contact patch.
