Right, to start, you’ll be thinking “Oh here we go…”, but I’m saying it anyway. I want to make my own trials unicycle. Yes, I know many people have said they are going to and I know that no-one actually gets it done, but we can all have our dreams right?
Anyway, what I wanted to know to start is what would be a Decent Rim, Hub and Frame design.
Rim - What would be a strong design for a rim? obviously it would be double-walled, and I was thinking wide… Like 48mm or something, and I like the look of how the spoke holes are positioned on the Qu-ax trials rim, with the zig zag pattern. The next thing I wanted to consider, is 36 or 32 holes? or both? I know that people have been saying how they want 32 holes so the could use bike trials rims, but is it worth it? And lastly for the rim, should I consider Drill-outs, like the KH Rim and the Koxx one Rims?
Hub - Obviously ISIS, But the main thing here is whether to do 32 or 36 hole hub? 32 holes - more options for bike trial rims, Or I could try both maybe?
Frame - I was thinking semi-roundcrown, semi-square. I know these have been attempted by Koxx one and I think some others have, but maybe someone could post an idea?
If anyone has suggestions, then just post them, and please don’t be negative about it, I just want to give it a go. Sure, it most likely be that nothing will happen, but like I said, I can dream can’t I?
EDIT: Oh and someone posted a link to the drawings and specs of the ISIS drive… anyone know a link to it please? Thanks again
Hmmm… Triple walled, I like the sound of that. Small drilled holes? How small are you thinking?
Would you mind explain offset spokes? sorry, I don’t know much about the rim.
How would you need the hub so it would not break?
What would you class as ‘good’ pedals, because I personally am fine with Twisted PC’s, yet my best friend can’t stand them.
I’m going to add though, the Unicycles are intended to be kinda Mid-range, so better than nimbus, yet not as expensive as lets say K1 or KH
