The answer to your question is:

I hope, that I could help you.

Non-metal pedals?

Hi

I read from Unicycle Magazin that last year metal pedals were not allowed. Is there the same rule this year?

Any other limitations in the stadard group? Is there any limitations in the handles in the standard group?

Yes we have the same rule this year.
For all unicyclists the following restrictions apply:
The use of metal pedals or pedal mounting systems (Clickpedals, toe clips, straps, etc.) is not allowed for security reasons.

look here, I think we have nothing about that jet.
I will ask at the next training, then I can tell you.

Unicycle Marathon

Hello Tuomas,
as in the last years only pedals made of plastic are allowed to avoid any injuries to other unicyclists, spectators or runners. Best are the Miyata pedals which keep your feet on the pedals even when it is raining. In the Standard group the following limitations are to be considered:

  • max 28"x1,75" tyre with a diamater of about 72,5 cm
  • crank arms of min 114 mm
  • 1:1 (no gears etc)
    see details on homepage www.rmsv-duesseldorf.de in german and english language.
    Best regards

Ok, I’ll get new pedals. I didn’t find this in the “english details”.

The rest of the limitations I found easily: 28" 1,75" 114mm and 1:1.

Are those all the rules and limitations?

Thanks! Hopefully, I’ll be there. I’ve already registered to participate.

Hi,
which standard unicycle do you recommend for the marathon ?

Do you know if the Nimbus 29" Tour unicycle (it seems that it uses a 28" tire) can be used as an standard unicycle ?

Thanks!

The Uni will be OK if you mount a 28x1.75 tyre, replace the Alu-pedals with plastic pedals and make sure that the cranks are at least 114mm long.

Mounting a 28x1.75 tyre on a 40mm wide rim works fine.

If you use the 28x2.35 tyre, you will be classified as “unlimited”

You can also use this one, with the 28x1.75 tyre and 114 mm cranks.

Ah… good to know! Thanks for the info.

Do you have elevation information for this race? Jan’s great time suggests a pretty flat course. True?
