Re: swimming on a 41" wheel.
I’m not sure about the design of Semcycle’s big wheel, but if it has a frame
similar to a Schwinn, your frame might be out of alignment. This can happen with
a perfectly true wheel, and is the result of holding the whole thing together
with a single bolt.
Look at your wheel and see if it’s centered between the forks, and directly
aligned with the seat post above it. If not, loosen the seat post bolt, line
everything up, and then tighten it like hell.
Another possible source of your trouble is your riding surface. Becuase you
are using a different tire on this unicycle, you may be more affected by the
crown in the road. Riding on the right side may give you more tendency to pull
to the right.
Also it might be “Cosmic Rays”, or the Santa Cruz “Mystery Spot Effect”. Or else
maybe it’s all in your mind.
If none of the above is effective, give Semcycle an email: < email@example.com >.
Al or Sem or Teresa should be able to help you.

I just going a new unicycle with a 41" wheel from semcycle. It’s beautiful and
remarkably light by the way.
The problem is when I ride at speed in a straight line it pulls hard to the
right. I have to swing my arms to keep the thing straight. The wheel looks
pretty true and is aligned properly. I don’t have this problem on my 28".
Ideas? I’d really like to be able to do some distance on this cycle.
thanks in advance, lloyd
