Nimbus 36 unicycle cable brake

I welded on a little bracket to the back of my big 36’er unicycle frame to allow me to mount a cable brake: The nimbus 36 frame that I use can run magura brakes, but I found I didn’t like them as much. They squeeked, and worse, they rubbed against the rim when going up steep hills. The cable brake has more clearance, and is also softer (which allows me to brake more often without worrying about it throwing me off the unicycle). A picture of my handlebar that I made with the brake: And the whole unicycle (before I... [read more]


Woodshop – Dust collection

I’ve been working on my “Woodshop” (aka: the garage) in preparation for some larger projects (in particular, kitchen cabinets).

Louise and I saw the new Cirque du Soleil show, Kooza, in San Jose last night. It was great! http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/CirqueDuSoleil/en/showstickets/kooza/intro/intro.htm The show features a unicycle act; the most impressive part about that act was the fact that it is very difficult to unicycle with someone else holding on to you, and they were doing that while making it look very artistic and flowing. My favorite part was probably the clowns. They were pretty darn funny, and even made Louise laugh! We want to go see some of the other shows in Vegas. I’m hoping to make it a double-up trip...
