New Geared 36 unicycle wheel build

My geared 36 unicycle was breaking spokes nearly every ride. I’ve rebuilt the wheel with the same spokes quite a few times over the years. I would have to rebuild it when the hub failed or had some problem that caused me to send it back to Switzerland. Or simply because I was learning how to build wheels myself, and didn’t really know what I was doing (that was the first wheel build).

Here is a time lapse taken with my iPhone 6 of me lacing the wheel:


I also replaced the brake pads with a new organic pad set. They are a little tight, but brake pretty well! 694.3 miles on the cycle meter (mainly a note to myself on when I did this).
