MUni Giraffes ?

… Just investigating the boundaries of MUni …

Q1> anyone tried MUni with giraffe ? any success ? I think it would be
pretty cool…

Q2> is there such a thing as a giraffe with bigger wheel than 20" ? I have
seen the Roger Davies 24" Carbon Fiber giraffe in action, but apart
from that …

… I am thinking of having a 4’/5’ uni made with 26" wheel for off-road use.

My homemade 6’ has a 24" wheel.

The Semcycle giraffe comes with a 20" but can also accomodate a 24"

Re: MUni Giraffes ?

I regularly go off road on my crappy 5’ Taiwanese giraffe. Not to do trails, but
when entertaining in fields and parks. I use a 20" wheel and often get hit by
low branches - Tah Tan Gah.

You must have missed me in the Muni race in Edinburgh, I did the race around the
lake and the hill climb race on my 6’er. Not bad, it was quite forgiving and
because it is light it hops quite well.

I thought of that aswell would be interesting.

Re: MUni giraffe?

Q1> anyone tried MUni with giraffe? any success ? I think it would be pretty
cool… Over this summer, I camped in the Adirondacks mountains at Limekiln
Lake and mountain unicycled around the area with my 6’giraffe unicycle. It
is truely a more tiring task especailly when going up and down hills but
after a while, going over different terrain became quite easy… with a
little practice of course!

Q2> is there such a thing as a giraffe with bigger wheel than 20" ? I bought my
giraffe used at local bike shop… and it looks as though it was only ridden
once or twice. It has a sticker located on it that says: ‘Mark of Quality
Bill Matthews Co. Laguna Hills, CA.’ so its custom made for all I know but
it can accommodate a 24" wheel although I only have the 20" on it now.

Just thought I’d give a little input!
