I’m not paid to say this, but i just wanted to let readers know how good i think the Pashley Muni 20" is.
I haven’t been unicycling for long, and i haven’t got a vast experience of other unis, so i can’t make comparisons. Wot i can say however is that from what i have read on various unicycle sites, mine is standing up really well 2 the punishment i’m giving it. I’ve read on some sites stories of peoples cranks breaking etc, and tacoed wheels. I haven’t suffered any of these, and i’ve hopped, both rolling and dead landing off drops of upto 4 1/2 feet, onto concrete etc,and my uni hasn’t flinched, although i did a couple of times… By the way, i weigh 182 lbs (just checked), and i wasn’t landing seat infront, cos i haven’t got the control seat out yet, even from 2 foot drops (Any advice on that would be appreciated).
I’ve read on Unicycle.com that the 20" pashley is for smaller riders. This is true to a point, as riding any distance on a muni ride with it feels slow. However for any size of rider i think it makes a great trials uni.
By the way, i’ve added a Maxxis Max Daddy 2.125 tyre, which is a bit bigger than the supplied one( a Schwalbe Dirty Harry)
yeah, i know, the lollipop bearing housing isn’t ideal, but i find it stands up to crank stall etc really well… which leads to my question. When you do a crank stall (Or crank hangs as they are sometimes called ), do your split case bearing housings get damaged?
By the way, i bought the Pashley from unicycle.uk.com, and at £120 it was definately the best muni for the money.
Those of u in America have a wider range to choose from, so u might get a better deal for a different uni
yep, just as pleased, with a different title, as i think people were ignoring the other one cos it looks like a commercial, so i wanted 2 change the title, but wasn’t entirely sure how 2, and would have had to contact the administrator, so posting a new one seemed sensible, as the other one soon dropped away into obscurity as no one viewed it.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Feel free still to answer my questions
> I just checked a UK slang dictionary and found > chuffed Adj. > Pleased, delighted. Compare with ‘dischuffed’ and ‘chuffed to buggery’. E.g.“I’m well chuffed at the result.” [1950s]
> chuff Noun. > 1. Rubbish, nonsense. E.g.“That film was a load of chuff.” > 2. A passing of wind from the anus, a ‘fart’. > To chuff is to fart. To be chuffed is to be pleased. I don’t think I would want to be in the same room as a whole bunch of pleased Englishmen.
I’d never heard of the later, and as regular readers will know, I use a
lot of Uk slang. However.
The more normal term (that still sounds a bit chuff I surpose) for those
two things is Guff.
ie, load of old…
or did you just…
Chuff is a dead handy word tho, there is also its derative, chuffing. as
mind your chuffing fingers/toes ( used a LOT at work when moving big
bits of scenery around.
or as in
Its chuffing frezeing in here. Also work, used when the secenery dock
door is open and we are waiting to unload a truck.
