so yesterday I took a bunch of my friends parts ( the important ones were with permission) and built a glider uni.
LX wheel set without cranks
lx frame with 2 peices of seat post welded on near the bottom of the legs
no high speed wobbles because their is no crank, and really fun once you get over the balance change. because your foot is lower your balance is better but your foot is also out a little farther
I think I got the pictures attatched
the pegs are above the axel so balancing on it is really hard bc style and technically it is called coasting
what I do is put one foot on the peg and the other foot on the tyre and GLIDE.
I am pretty sure if I was trying to build a BCuni I would be smart enough to to put the plates/pegs below the axel
I think you guys are thinking it is a BCuni because their are 2 pegs. their are 2 pegs because I put my left on the frame and my friend who’s frame it is uses his right
the same site you linked to sayed that “I glide a 24” Miyata with cranks. The Miyata has a very responsive and light frame with a good place to put your foot. But this is not the optimum setup for gliding. I haven’t experimented much, but I think a 26" would be best. Cranks cause high speed oscillations (discussed in the how to section) so they need to be removed for optimum perfomance. Also, a peg would be affixed to the frame somewhere between the axle and the where the forks join to create a high leavage foot rest. I’m not sure where the best place to put a peg is but I believe the lower it is the better. Tires and shoes are of utmost importance to gliding."
it sounds like torkerdx made preety close to what this guy says is the optimum gliding machine
