Red Menace geared 36" unicycle for sale

I’m not riding as much and I need to start downsizing my unicycle collection, part of which is the one-of-a-kind Red Menace. This is a beautifully built 36" unicycle with dual chain drive to allow many different gear ratios. I bought it from its builder several years ago.

You can read its creation story here and see pictures here: Red Menace 36 update

Let me know if you’re interested. It could be a great ride for setting some personal best speed records, it feels amazing to cruise at 20 mph while pedaling slowly, and it looks great.


legendary unicycle. Do you have any recent photos of the beast?

Here’s a photo from yesterday.

Legendary indeed.


How much do you want for this beast?

It’s sold already, barring any shipping difficulties.

Whoops! Not sold, as it turns out.

Talking to the potential buyer inspired me to take it for a couple of test drives and it performed really well. I had to swap out the carbon fiber cranks for aluminum cranks and the disc brakes aren’t working (fluid drained from the system I guess) but otherwise it is in excellent shape.

I made a quick video from my rides a couple of weeks ago. It was only geared up a little bit but you can see it riding really smoothly. Red Menace montage - YouTube

I made another Red Menace video, to demonstrate how to change gears for the purchaser. It kinda got me excited about Red Menace again. It’s a cool machine. The video is a bit long because there are a few finicky steps and because I’m talking through it all, but I think it is mechanically interesting. Here’s the link:


That’s actualy really temping… Such a beautiful machine!

I might PM you, or follow up on our current email :thinking:

I had never seen this before. Wow.

Unfortunately it has sold already, although I’m still figuring out the details of how to get it to CA or KY. Anybody driving to one of those states from the WA area in the next little while?

Sold, packaged, and shipped off to Kentucky:

Two bike boxes from the local bike store, neatly nested, lots of bubblewrap and an interior box for miscellaneous parts (such as the cranks, which I removed for easier fitting). The whole thing was 39 pounds and (with cost $150 to ship.


39 lbs!!??. I realize the box adds some weight, but what is the actual weight if the uni?

I don’t have it anymore to check, but I initially measured the unicycle and all its spare parts as 23 pounds, and then when it was boxed up I measured it as 39 pounds in the box. It’s not a 16 pound box so something got messed up along the way.

There are a bunch of spare parts (extra set of cranks, extra sprockets, extra secondary axle) but I can’t make sense of it. The new owners will have to answer that question.
