Yeah I measured it last night. It seems to be about the same distance. Let me measure it again in a quick sec. Okay first I thought the right one was indeed different but after checking 4 times and measuring it from the pedal straight up the frame to the stitches on the seat it’s the same.
Is it normal to have a tiny little gap between the pedal spindle and crank? The place where it screws into the crank. I can’t push my finger nails into it but there’s a visible gap and it’s not all around, just to one side of it. Both side has it, a tinnnny bit more on the right.
I’ll take your advice in a sec and try a washer (if I can find one that is) underneath the seat bolts on one side to tilt it. That is after I go out and give it another try, seems like my head might be playing tricks on me or something or I have a habit of pushing longer and harder with my left leg. The church yard is filled with cars now (tribal drum beats can be heard through the window). Have to look around for a nice place to try it.
I’ve actually seen that video before haha. I think most of the 36er videos on youtube I’ve seen unless they have an odd name that the typical search won’t bring up.
Yeah, cutting the frame will be my last resort. But I think I might have to, I’m planning to learn quick swerves not to mention dealing with the road crown so my body will be a bit twisted/leaning to one side sometimes and I might need that extra stretch from a more bended knee to make it happen. But yeah I’ll give it a few days and see from there.
Any clue how much it takes to cut a frame? It was pretty tedious cutting the seat post with my not so great tools and I’d like to do a cleaner cut if I were to do it again, especially on the frame.
I wouldn’t trust my neighborhood with a $60 bike. Literally, I have a $60 bike and sold my expensive road bike because of the paranoia. Someone already walked over my yard and tried cutting off the lock on my cheap bike and I THINK it’s my next door neighbor who is a 70 year old man. Now I have a fence in between
Nah I know I’m lucky to even have this unicycle, it’s trouble but it’s not big trouble that I can’t solve and I’m grateful to it all. I’m just dying to ride it
Yeah that’s what I was thinking. The KH saddle, especially the freeride with the extra thick foam for comfort is adding quite a bit of height. I’m not sure about buying another seat since I did want a nice soft seat. I was having issue even with the KH street fusion, which is the less padded version.
Eh, if I cut my unicycle I’ll just bring it to the local bike shop. The shipping would kill.
Yeah, I was thinking that too, in all the points that you made. We’ll see how daring I am in about two hours from now
I might just attempt a few jumps in the front of my house. I don’t have any close grassy areas a few blocks away, we’ll see I guess.
