The good news is that after forking out $109 US for kookas my cranks are no longer the weak point of my unicycle. (And they look fantastic)
The bad news is that means that the weak point on my uni is now the axle - as I discovered last ride Tony and I were doing a descent of body bag, one of the most hard core local mountain bike tracks which features steep descents and a sequence of 14 stunts (11 have so far proved navigatable by uni). I was enjoying myself so much I launched a little two exuberantly off a jump and there was a very nasty sound on landing as my suzue axle sheared through.
For those who haven’t had this happen before, the axle is just about the most annoying / costly part on a unicycle to replace. It means a complete rebuild of the wheel, removal of cranks and bearings, usually new spokes and a time consuming job.
Guess I’ll have to start saving for a profile, unless the new KH axle proves bombproof. Here’s hoping that will be available separately and soon!
