Unicycling

Unicycling is one of my favorite activities — especially mountain unicycling or road riding in the hills by my house. I learned to unicycle in April 2004 when I got my first one: a cromo steel Kris Holm 24″ mountain uni.

I was the previous 2010 Unicycle Marathon World Champion! The course was really suited to my riding style. In 2012, I attended UNICON and got 3rd in each of the marathon, 10km and 100km races. The cool thing about the 100km race is that I was one of the only people to do it nonstop, with zero dismounts or falls.. At the North American Unicycle Nationals in 2010 (called UGames), I also won the Downhill Mountain Unicycling race, and Marathon race. I placed second in the 10km and time trial races (behind the super-fast Chuck Edwall) and 3rd in Mountain Uni Cross Country.

I have a lot of unicycles and primary ride my Kris Holm geared 36″ road uni and 24″ geared mountain unicycle. I also have a geared 26″ muni. The geared hub is a planetary system that gives two speeds, and are from Schlumpf Innovations.

In 2013 I built my own big 36″ unicycle to ride, called the Corbin V-36.

In April 2017 I rode the Arizona Trail on my unicycle. Check out all the posts: Arizona Trail on Unicycle.

In 2015 I rode my unicycle through the Himalayan mountains of Nepal.

In 2020, I did some filming work for xfinity mobile and appeared in their commercial and website. https://ispot.tv/a/nmAL

Listed below are various posts about unicycling (this is my “Unicycling” category on the left”).

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... [read more]

Unicycle Handlebar: Inverted V

In my last unicycle handlebar experiment I did a simple T, slightly bent forward. This design was too close to my knees, didn’t feel very good on my hands, and felt a bit unstable.  I made a... [read more]

New Corbin UniBar (unicycle handlebar)

I made a new handlebar for my geared KH26. I was using the KH T-bar, but it feels really flexy and it feels like the seat will eventually break from the pressure I put on... [read more]

Geared Hub troubles

I have several KH/Schlumpf geared unicycle hubs. They allow me to have two different speeds, and really have been a game changer for unicycling. One of my older hubs started to have bearing failure, causing... [read more]
