Madagascar: Trees


Madagascar: Vast Open Space

..and my Louise on a unicycle! This was a “short” 20 mile ride that we did. Louise was wise, and turned around early and ended up doing about 10 miles. I went a lot further, attempting to look for some cool stuff. I did manage to find some cool single track, but it was pretty short. Geared KH24:


Ride the Lobster race pictures from Florian

I was checking out some pictures on Florian Schlumpf’s website, schlumpf.ch (creator of the two speed geared unicycle hub), and saw some old pictures from the Ride the Lobster unicycle race. I copied the ones with me in them, of course! Me sporting the RTL jersey and my number: A team picture! Kevin passing the baton (a GPS) to me, with AJ and Sondra in the background: Nimbus 36 with KH/Schlumpf geared unicycle hub: The frame is now dead; the bearing holders were not working right, and the two front tubes on the frame have a crack and are about...

Madagascar 2009 Adventure Part 1

(republish) This is a story of our Adventures. I right it mainly for myself, but I hope others will at least look at the pictures, or possibly enjoy reading it. On July 15th, 2009 Louise and I hopped on Air Madagascar and flew from Nairobi (NBO) to Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar. We were set to begin a one month adventure to see an island that has some of the most unique animals and vegetation in the world. We had pre-arranged a tour with Rija from rijatours.com, which was nice, since we had a driver pick us up at the... [read more]

Madagascar: Girl Leaning on Pole


Back to geared cokering!

My 36″ geared unicycle was out of commission for a while; the hubs bearings needed replacing, and the creator (Florian Schlumpf in Switzerland) now has an improved version. Today was the first real test ride of it, and man, what a tough ride! It has a long tough offroad uphill, followed by some knarly muni for a bit, and then turns into some nice back roads to Corralitos before heading back to Aptos. 32-34 miles, depending on who’s watch you look at.

KH36 Handlebar

My old handlebar on my coker wasn’t quite what I wanted, and I have been quite happy with the one I use on my 24″ mountain unicycle, so I decided to make a version for the big wheel. This one is the same as the other, except it attaches to underneath the seat instead of extending to the frame.


Machining a unicycle clamp

I needed a brake adapter for my KH36 to go with a new handlebar I made. I finished the handlebar a few days ago to replace my red one. The red one was made of thick steel, and doesn’t have quite the right angle I want. Old red one on the left, new one on the right: I also need a brake adapter, since the magura brake will not fit on the bar ends. I had some cromoly tubing that was the wrong inner diameter, and way too thick. I used the lathe to turn the tube to the correct... [read more]
