Sqeaky!

My unicycle “squeaks” whenever I turn or fall. Is this normal? What may be
causing this? Adam

Is your seat post clamp tight? Trying to turn can twist it, I don’t understand
the falling part though.

When I took possesion of my latest unicycle it sqqqueaked constantly in a most
irritating and worrying fashion. Turned out the wheel spokes were not tight
enough, my local cycle shop refused to touch it as it would not fit in his jig.
DId it myself, not ideal but adequate.

Hi, Adam. If your uni has its pedal crank arms held on by ‘taper pins’, try
taking them out and reinstalling them. I had a uni that had a loose pin once,
and it allowed just enough ‘movement’ to cause a squeak.

I’ve seen this caused by the bearings in the pedals getting stiff. Also by loose
cottered cranks (on an inexpensive uni).

If you’ve got cottered cranks, give the pins a few taps and tighten the nut up.
