muni picture

Hi everyone,

If anyone’s interested, I found a website with some pictures of a race I was in
in February. There’s some mountain bike shots and one MUni picture. The address
is: <www.internetstore.bc.ca/slobin> Click on “North Shore indoor mountain bike
challenge” to get to the pictures.

Cheers,

Kris.

Kris (in his modesty?) didn’t mention the picture of him was of him leaping off
an 8 foot high platform! Did he successfully ride away? Or break another axle?
In any case you must check it out!

RE: Muni Picture

Nice pic! I was curious about the model of your muni. Obviously it’s
strong. Is it a home brew or commercial, and also, 24" or 26"?

   Hi,

   Actually, the 8 feet mentioned in the website is an exageration- it's
   probably closer to 5 feet vertical.

   I landed, road a few feet, and then skidded out and wiped on the gravel,
   but the axle survived fine on this as well as the rest of the course (it
   has since broken though). Several mountain bikers (6 or 7 of them) broke
   their bottom brackets on this drop so I was quite pleased that my axle
   didn't break.

   Cheers,

   Kris.

RE: Muni Picture

Whenever I’m tempted to think I’m pretty good on my uni, I’ll look at this
picture. That’s suicide!

What in the world is the v-brake for?

I can understand using a drag brake if you were on a touring uni going down a
mountain pass. But a brake on a muni with 175mm cranks?

Are you bombing straight down some nasty steep slopes?

RE: Muni Picture

Hi,

It’s a home-brew, made by a machinist in town that makes bike prototypes.

In short, the frame is 4130 CrMo with Miyata style bearing casings, the axle is
a 20mm 8 spline 4130 CrMo BMX axle braised into a one-piece custom 4140 steel
hub, the crank arms are 175mm, the rim is a 26" Mavic SUP 36 hole downhill Mtn
Bike rim, and the tire is a 26"x2.35" Kujo downhill mtn bike tire with
foam-reinforced sidewalls (which prevents pinch-flats). It also has a seatpost
shock and V-brake.

Cheers,

Kris.
