Saw a thread like this a few days ago while browsing another forum. The idea was to post what you were currently working on, whether it be restoring a old uni or designing a completely new one from new parts.
So post your new projects here and show us what you are working on!
I’ve started on my latest project/ christmas present to myself. Its a super light weight G26er for all mountain/enduro xc unicycling.
machined/drilled 137mm moment cranks
QX series 26" Alu frame
QX series carbon seatpost
KH 26" freeride rim
Impact Knockout pedals
CF seat base
KH slim foam/cover- no bumpers
Custom designed Aluminium 2 prong handle- bolt onto 4 bolt pattern of front of CF base (similar to GB4 but with longer, straight fork arms)
Brycer sourced Magura frankenbrake.
Maxxis ardent 2.4 folding bead tyre- tubeless.
I wanted to get a disc brake operating for this build but I could not put it off any longer. It seems as thought the KH and mountain uni systems won’t be online until well into next year and I want the set up ready to go for all the races I have planned next year (and so I can get it all dialled in for UNICON XVI.)
I’ll post pics once its all together- Should hopefully be ready to go by Feb next year!
My current project is an underseat mount for my DIY LED light. Initial testing suggests the idea should work - the moving shadows from my legs were a little distracting, but something I suspect I’d learn to ignore, and in any case I can bring the light a couple of inches further forwards than my initial mount point without interfering with the grab handle which should make this a far less significant issue. I still need a head mounted light - if nothing else for mounting when I need to have the underseat light switched off so it doesn’t shine in my eyes - but riding with just a head light the lack of shadows and perspective is noticeable, was having UPDs due to not being able to see bumps in the trail.
