Can you do any sweet stuff?



Yo fellas, if you wana shed some weight on your 24" wheel, use a 20"
tube. It takes some weight off. I just did it on my bc. Its a ***** to
get on but its lighter.

Re: Bc is growing. Are you in?

i got a 26" BC. i got some plates i whipped up in about 2 minutes. they
are stong but dont have much grip, i also got a semi-slick tyre on it.

i can hop, ride down rough terrain, go backwards for about 5 metres,
hand-walk it and thats about it. i also can ride up a QP but only ever
done it twice.

i ride whenever my uni gets stolen and there is nothing else to ride or
when i want people on the street to go "WTF!! is that guy doing" which
is about once every 14 days.

if you want a nice slick tire for a 26"er, try a shwalbe big apple.

Re: Bc is growing. Are you in?

yea, that would be good, but i dont really ride that much though. i want
to but my BC is really crap. i want to get a 24" with a better
hub/axle. plus some new plates but dont want to spend the money right
now. in the next few months i will get one though...hopefully.

I can ride backwards okay, but I just can't seem to get the 180ing
down... maybe I should actually practice it.


I BCed through snow yesterday. It sucks but it does work...

Re: Bc is growing. Are you in?

Today the axel on my BC Wheel stripped all the threading off the bolts,
and cones... stupid slotted axel...

I had money saved up for a new Unicycle... but I won't be getting the
money I needed anytime soon, so I bought a new rim and tire.

It was $15 with the oversized tube, so I thought what the hell, why not
buy it.

20x3.0 Kenda Fireball? It doesn't say what model tire it is.

It's WAY easier for me to ride, but that could be from my old tire, it
had nobbies on the sidewall... this one when you rub it just burns your
skin under your pants... But I can ride about 300 feet now pretty
easily, from skate mount

I can hop up a curb almost too
