My little project to produce a customized 26" mountain unicycle is finally finished. I have ridden a 26" wheel size for offroad unicycling for years and always wanted a splined one that would do the job. I decided to take a KH 29er frame and build up a 26" wheelset that would fit inside it.
The parts are pretty much identical with the stock KH 29er except I have replaced the 29 inch rim with a sun double wide 26" rim, thrown an nduro leopard 3" tyre on it and wacked on a UDC gel saddle.
The result is a 7.4kg mountain unicycle which should allow me to hit all the drops and jumps I have been avoiding. Anyone else done this before?
That was the only down side but since I have still not got round to putting brakes on my coker which has had brake mounts for three years, I figure it was a small price to pay to get the wheel size I wanted.
