This uni has been a long time in the making (since about the middle of last October), and it’s finally done!
*Arrow Racing DHX 19" rim (the hardest thing to find, took me a month to find one)
*Profile hub/cranks (145mm)
*Maxxis Creepy Crawler tire
*Marwi Spokes (black)
*Yuni 20" frame (powdercoated black by your’s truly)
*Primo Viking clamp
*Carbon Fiber Miyata seat base
*Scott Wallis DeathGrip carbon fiber handle and bumper (Left handed, serial #003!)
*Gemcrest Vinyl cover (black)
*Door Edge guards (to prevent ripping of the cover)
The wheel was built by Tim Braun.
I love this uni. The final weight of it is just under 13lbs.
Note the door edge guards, rubber under the post bracket, and sticker
Note the powdercoat and flybar sticker (FlyBar is officially what I am calling it)
Note the profile sticker and SWAT sticker on the rim
Possibly one of the stongest wheelsets out there

This is what you need, i a different collor though.
ANd this is of course, custom made.
And a thing that I’ve thought of, is to have a small pocket or if youre not that paranoid of weight, a bag, like the axiom cabot, under the saddle behind the seatpost, to have keys, cash, cellpshone in.
The attatchment to the saddle must be custom made, but you could just attatch it with some heavy duty glex, or 2 bolts trough the saddle base.
And one last thing, but the bolts sticking up and make them round on top… I don’t know how many blisters i’ve got from grabing saddle after a fall or so.
I met Scott Wallis at CMW. I asked him how strong the CF handle was and if he worries about it cracking from falls. He stands the unicycle up and forcefully throws the saddle to the ground. The handle impacts a rock hard. There was no visible sign of damage from the impact, not even a scratch. I think the handle is plenty strong.
Is there really? I didn’t know that. I don’t think I’ll need to use that any time soon.
Well, that is something I don’t need to worry about, as I don’t have any keys, or a car to use said keys that I don’t have. The only thing I carry on my person when doing trials riding is my wallet, which can’t hurt me. There isn’t any money in it anymore.
Great idea. In my pre-carbon fiber seat days, I bent a plastic Miyata seat in half when I missed a jump mount and landed on the front of the seat. Then again, maybe I’m glad it bent and didn’t hold rigid. A rigid saddle might have transferred the force somewhere less desirable.
