Breaking your uni is like a car crash. You see a lot of pictures but you never think it’s going to happen to you.
Stick that in your Sig and smoke it.
I was out with my Summit Uni doing some trials stuff on those concrete cylinders on campus (pics in my gallery for those who don’t know what I’m talking about) when I did something pretty dumb. I jumped and did a crank grab on the lip of the skinny blue cylinder but my balance was off so I jumped off just to make the regular crank stall. I don’t know what happened, but I must not have jumped far enough or I jumped too far. What I’m pretty sure happened was I landed the fall down on the uni but then I didn’t stick the landing and then I fell off and then I heard a horrible noise. When I rode it around after that I could feel something was bent.
When I got back to my room I didn’t asses the situation right away. Actually the first thing I did was look up crank arms on unicycle.com. It wasn’t uni-till I was talking to Zach Jucha on AIM that I finally decided to take off the crank to lay it on the table to get a good look at it. I took of the pedal and laid it down and saw that the “screw-in” part was wobbling like a mad man.
Wooh, talk about a big scare. I really wasn’t in the mood to pony up 70 bucks for new cranks. Zach was the first to hear the good news. Anyway I’m minus a unicycle uni-till I can get to the bike shop tomorrow and buy some new pedals.
Wait a second…… I’m broke
