Okay, well, it’s not new. It was bought at an auction about 10 years ago and given to me by a friend who was going to take it to the dump tomorrow until I heard and told them I was running a rescue for unicycles
The wheel, apparently, is pretty good. I looked up Alex Rims DX32, and it seems to be at least a decent, reliable thing (though apparently a tad heavy). The tire, I couldn’t find much about (Luna tires is now Kenda?? It has Luna on it but not really any other distinguishing marks), but it’s 2-ply and is marked for 340 pounds at 40PSI, as noted on the tire itself. 36 spokes, yada yada. I don’t know enough about wheels to really pass a judgement on how good it is at the moment. Of course, I’ll take it into a bike shop and have them tune it up.
The saddle is trashed (rubber and only rubber, by the way, no bumpers or anything, which explains why it was trashed in the first place), so that’s being tossed unless anyone wants a twisted, weird, and super uncomfortable saddle for free. I’m not sure if I’m going to replace it, or just get used to switching out either the saddle on my Miyata or Club when I want to use the 20". I think (?) that I could use the current seatpost with a new saddle, but I might need a longer one (edit: the seatposts on both the Flamingo and the Club are too large for the 20" frame, being 25.4mm instead of the required 22.2).
The frame itself has no marks on it (nor does the hub), so I may switch it out for something like a Nimbus II 20" frame, however I wouldn’t do this unless possibly riding with a really weak frame would be bad for the safety of me and the rest of the uni.
The clamp is… I’m not sure what it is, I’ve never seen anything like it before, but it doesn’t work so I’ll switch it for something from ol’ UDC.
Doesn’t really matter to me right now, but anyone know anything about the pedals? Plastic, kinda basic, from Sunshine Pedals. I guess they’re strong enough for riding and some minor hopping, so I’m not too concerned
So, any advice, concerns, things I need to look at before failing some freestyle? Or even, what saddle should I get? I was looking at the Nimbus Freestyle…
