I bought some United main cap bearing holders for my Munis. They don’t
have the precisin fit that some of the high end frames come with, but
they’re lighter and they’re pre-made. They’re plenty strong as there’s
next to no bending moment at the end of the fork legs. It was $16 to get
enough for one unicycle.
