hey i thought it would just be interesting to here what kind of unicycle you ride…not to excititng haha but ill start… i have a torker cx as my first unicycle (very bad) but it worked seeing as i just learned on it and am now buying a nimbus trials
i ride a nimbus 20" trials
I ride a stock Kris Holm 20inch trials 2008. It’s rock solid and stands up to anything.
My three main rides are:
'07 KH 24" MUni w/CF base, magura brake, LM rim, intense tire, etc, etc…
'07 KH trials all stock except try-all tire.
'07 36er w/touring bar, nightrider tire and brake.
Plus a few other unis and a BC.
I ride a '07 KH 24" w/ CF base, Thomson Masterpiece seatpost, Gazzaloddi 24x3" Magura HS-33 w/ stainless lines, and a Hope seatclamp.
A KH20LN '09 will be mine when it is available.
70% of the time: KH29
20% of the time: KH36
10% of the time: KH24
Purple Koxx with Zebra Print Seat. Pretty dowp ride.
Three Stacked 24" Schwinns
I ride what I call a “Tri-Unicycle” ™ which is three stacked 24" vintage Schwinns. See photographs and short video footage on my other post tonight that has Tri-Unicycle in the title. - Razzle
I ride a nimbus trials with k1 frame. Cf seat, k1 lux foam and kh cover.
I’ve got a crazy kh with all stripped and polished parts, frame, rim and soon to be the new hub. I’ve got sliver double butted spokes and getting some of the g-sport nipples. I’m probably going to get the new kh street/trial seat and convert it into a cf base with the blank cf I have had kicking around for like 2 years or something. Would love to get a wallis though… Going to get mg1 ti pedals, thinking of going with onza cranks, but will probably strip my qu-ax 145’s and clear coat them or drill out my 137 moments.

07 KH29 (125/150 Moments, magura HS33 in the mail) - riding this the most lately
…KH36 (with 09 saddle) soon
Cool! I had one of these a few years ago. I called mine a tri-verticycle.
Now I have a great 3-wheel stack that Steve Howard built for me in about 2003. I can’t find any pictures of it but it’s awesome. I need to put new tires on it and learn to freemount it.
Items in my collection that aren’t pictured include a 12" Steve Howard Custom uni (built for my 2 year old daughter), a 20" summit trials, a 2005 KH24, an 07 KH29er, and the fantastic Steve Howard 3 wheel stack.
For now I pretty much only ride the KH24, KH29 and Coker. I should really clean out my garage and get rid of some of this stuff.
I am inspired! I clearly do not have enough unicycles around the house. There are five unicycles in the garage, (36 titan, 29 Nimbus, 24 Nimbus, 24 KH Muni, 20 Torker) but we have two riders and another one coming along. That will be less than 1.7 unicycles per rider–far below average for this crowd. Frankly, it is a disgrace.
This situation calls for action!
Credit card in hand, it is time to stimulate the American economy!
(Well, perhaps a small town’s economy in Georgia. OK, let’s stimulate the economy in Taiwan. Isn’t globalism wonderful?)
