Great!, welcome to the forum ! Glad to have you around!
I have a KH 24. What kind of uni’s have you squashed ? I think you couldn’t break a 24 or 26 muni without doing big drops. At least not a strong one.
Definitely don’t stop riding. I have lost 15 lbs. in the 3 months since I started !
I just ordered a new tire, but thats it as far as trashing stuff goes.
You are more advanced then me. I haven’t learned to hop up stairs yet. I’m not even a very good fat man now, down to 185 !
I guess that a KH 20 or 24 could be modded with heavier spokes. I am pretty sure that a stock KH would be strong enough for regular muni. You know better though, what will work or not.
I have read about a new tire called the large marge. 24x 3.5 I think. This, on a
top grade rim might work.
I am impressed at how far you have come so far. It may cost you a bit more to make your dream uni. Please post and let us know about any cool stuff you make.
There are custom frame makers, as well as motorcycle spokes, tires and rims etc. out there. I am sure you can assemble an awesome uni, that you can beat up to your hearts content, big drops, anything. UDC has contact info for custom builders. Maybe something as simple as a KH 24 or a large marge setup with heavier spokes may do the trick. Keep us posted !
A 26 isn’t as tough as a 20 or 24 generally. The rim and tire are more narrow. I have read posts where Kriss wrote he made the 07 rims drilled because he wanted to make them wider (yet not heavier) for more lateral stability. It is my impression that a smaller fatter tire and wider rim is the strongest.
Hey, the guy is obviously taking a pro-active approach to it. Just keep unicycling, the rest will take care of itself.
My brother weighed in at about 280 last year and he lost 90 lbs over the course of this year. He didn’t do it through unicycling, but unicycling certainly wouldn’t have hurt. He started eating a lot healthier foods and exercising regularly at the gym…exercise bike, treadmill, step-machine.
