Cool welding goggles

They aren’t as dark as my glasses and work well for brazing. Very old school.

KH 36 Unicycle

My new road unicycle is setup and ready to ride! My old road unicycle was a Nimbus 36 frame – but, I had had dremmeled out the bearing holders to fit the 42mm bearings for the Schlumpf geared hub, which was a bad idea as it destroys the bearings in the hub. Luckily, I won a KH36 from the “Ride the Lobster” unicycle race. I finally got it a few months ago, but I still had not gotten my hub back from Switzerland until recently. So, I finally had all the pieces, and decided I wanted to paint the frame... [read more]

Yet another unicycle handlebar

I made another unicycle handlebar. This time, taking some ideas from other people and using an old bike seat tube with a T welded on front so I could mount bar ends on it.

Louise found two great models, and here is some of the shots of her work: Louise and Reese: One of her two models;

Munibar: Mountain Unicycle Handlebar

A few days ago I finished a new unicycle handlebar for my mountain uni; thus, we have the munibar. I’m planning on using the geared 24″ mountain unicycle for the Africa tour next summer, and I want a handlebar that can be used to put some weight onto it and also have better grips than the standard plastic round handlebar in front of unicycle seats. So, I created my own out of some old bicycle parts. Let’s take a look at the final product before I describe how I made it — note that it isn’t 100% finished; I have... [read more]
