24" elcheapo taiwanese uni with aftermarket bmx platform pedals and knobly tyre and a cheap seat thats covered in gaffer tape, with spiffy spokes and a horn. this uni was a replacement for my original uni which died at the skate park, lollypop beraing holders you know, nothing but trouble. it got an offroad tyre when i ordered my new uni, this ones going to go off road til its cheap + nasty hub and rim dies and then get an ecentric kangaroo wheel.

a 5.5’ giraffe that i bought from oddballs in campden (london) async single chain with viscount seat and bycycle bell with fish motif, and some realy cool reflectors that turn arround as i ride. flat pedals and bmx stunt pegs of course.
when the paint dries it’ll get disc covers on the wheel with flames painted arround the edge.

You wouldn’t, by chance, want to give me your spare coker would ya gilby? That would rock, I could come up with a charity like poor unicyclists and you could all donate to me and my friend Jonny D. That would be nice.

Right now, nothing. I do own a 26" Semcycle XL with a bent rim and a
20" Cycledesign with Sun Rhyno Lite rim that I need to put bearings on
and put back together. I have the bearings, just have to get them onto
the hub.

Now that is dedication! Riding your uni whilst contributing to the
group. I think I’ll stick to my office chair whilst typing for the
time being :wink:

Have fun!

Graeme

Nope, sorry. Right now it needs a new hub though. It’s nice to have a spare Coker so that someone else can go on a ride with me.

what do you ride?

i ride a Profile 26"MUni,which i have fallen deeply in love with again,i just gave her a $400$ dollar trip to uni.com and she’s ridin like a dream machine

24" Hunter with magura hydrolic break, and profile pozz. hub
6ft savage garaffe

24" sears special (late 70’s)
20" savage
20" home made

Avery

24" Fat Bastard that I broke last week

I ride a 2002 20" Norco Trials Unicycle, with some crappy, steel, bent cranks; an improvised, home-made, “Red Green”-style, gel seat; some craptacular welgo pedals; an Alex DX32 rim, and a Luna, 2.5" mod-trials bike back tire.

I also have two other “unis” that I dont ride for obvious reasons. Both of them are Norco’s, a 24" and a 20". My 24"'s frame is busted, and the rim is destroyed… My 20"'s rim is cracked in half, and the seat-post is completely bent, plus neither of them have pedals, the cranks are completely stripped…

yeah…

-Dylan

I treat my collection of unicycles like a Meccano set …
At the moment I have built up :

20" Custom DM (Julien Monney style) with Carbon Viscount style saddle
20" DM Ringmaster Pro with Resprayed Black frame and white Viscount saddle,
tyre and pedals
20" with old square shouldered Pashley Frame with pedal studs on one fork
crown
20" Lightweight Monty
20" Miyata Pro (Caroline’s)
24x3 with 48 spoke DM square axle and Profile Alu Trials Cranks
26" Carbon Fibre with D321 rim Tioga 2.3 DH, Odyssey Cranks, Mag pedals
(10.5 lbs)
26" with cross country rim and tyre
29" with 48 spoke Bontrager Maverick rim and WTB or IRC tyres
36" Coker

5ft DM Giraffe (Red saddle, chains and tyre)

So what is a Julien Monney style DM Custom? Suddenly my 20" DM Ringmaster Advanced is feeling jealous.

The hot favourites in glorious (laborious?) detail:

Wilder 6160C with Halo combat rim and Gazz 24x3" tyre, 170mm Profile cranks and hub to match, easton Cully pedals and CF air seat with uni handle.

KH20 with Monty rim and tyre, 145mm Profile cranks and hub, Atomlab Aircorp pedals and CF air seat with uni handle.

24" Nimbus II (not in my hands yet but sooon eh Roger) with Halo Combat rim and Dyno Fireball 24x3" tyre, 170mm Kooka cranks, 24seven Slack pedals, Suzue hub and CF air seat with uni handle.

The rest:
20" Sem Monty.
20" Nimbus II freestyle.
20" Tai freestyle.
5’ DM giraffe.
12" DM Ringmaster
24" UW with broken pedal boss so it ain’t seen some action in a good while.

Cheers,
Neil
