I put up a photo gallery of my new Semcycle 28" touring unicycle. I got it today and assembled it and rode it around a bit. I then snapped some pics. I also have pics of my other unicycles, and my new custom unicyclist pen.
I had to learn a forward (non-rollback) mount to get on this thing, and I did it! I really had to fling myself forwards, but I can freemount it. Whew! It is a fun and pleasant ride. I think I am going faster but it is so hard to tell, it flows so naturally.
The one downside is that the new Miyata (cheap) design MAY be rearing its ugly head. Unicycle.com does a great air conversion. I did notice that one of my screws on the bottom (see above gallery) of the seat was such that it couldn’t be tightened, so eventually it came off and I lost it riding. All the other screws are stable and snug. I don’t know if this has to do with the new Miyata seat construction people have been complaining about.
You tell me.
Anyway, I love the cycle so far. Well, I will probably replace the pedals with something with pins. I can see I will need the gripping action here big time (I rode in the rain that was falling as I finished assembling it). The ride is smooth, I can’t wait until the weekend when I have more time to really get into it. I rode for about an hour only.
Anybody know what PSI the 29" Nanoraptor should be, when inflated properly?
