Three questions

  1.  Anyone know of any companies that make unicycle hubs/axles? I know Suzue
     (Taiwan?) is one - does anyone have contact details for them?
     Information on any others, including contact details and product quality
     would be appreciated.
    
  2.  What are the differences between spoke patterns ie strength,
     weight, etc?
    
  3.  In unicycle hockey, what is the rule on knocking another players stick
     out of the way when going for the ball? I know roller hockey players use
     this tactic and it can be quite effective in uni hockey, but I don't
     know what the rules say about this. It can be rather dangerous if the
     attacker is too enthusiastic.
    

Thanks

What about just trapping their stick against the ground, without chopping
down on it?

Knocking the opponent’s stick out of the way is allowed providing that you
are doing it to go for the ball and that it is not done in an over violent
way. Chopping down hard on the other stick is not allowed. The generally
accepted method is to flick the other persons stick up slightly before
hitting the ball yourself.
