homemade handle...

  1. i've decided that my viscount saddle needs a handle, and
    with the up and comming purchase of my unistar 24, i am not
    going to have the 40 bucks left over to spend on a reeder
    (the downside of spending nites at stage crew and not a job)

    but, as i am a resorceful lad, and have access to a machine
    shop, i figured i could make one if only to last me until i
    could buy the real deal.

    which leads me to my question... having never used a handle
    in the reeder fashon i don't know which direction it is
    supposed to go. on unicycle.com you can order either left or
    right handed (i would be right handed) but they don't
    specefy which is which. with my history i'd end up making a
    left handed handle and have to re-do it... so if someone
    could tell me which way it goes it would be greatly

    The Reeder handle that you hold with your left hand is
    on the left as it leaves the seat and then ends up
    pointing to the right. Remember to think of this from
    the top of the seat.

    Since one installs the handle on the bottom, it can be
    confusing to think "upside down."
