    Can't you guys read? What makes this unicycle even sweeter than a 29"
    is that it is a 28".

    I was thinking ultimately I would put a 700c x 23mm tire on like road
    bikes and have a lightweight rim to match- keeping the rotational
    weight to a minimum and optimising hill climbing efficiency. The cost
    of cutting back weight would be puncture resistance and also bump
    absorption, but would allow extremely high P.S.I. and smooth rolling
    while the road is smooth without glass. T-7 is not ideal as it would
    weigh as much as your frame, but it will do until something better
    comes out or if you can be bothered making something custom. I'm not
    sure what saddle I would consider ideal but lately I've been fairly
    happy with the standard Fusion freeride. It's been so long since I used
    my CF airseat- but I doubt it would be more comfortable for long hauls.
    Awesome cycle! I'd ride with plastic (Oddessey Twisted PC) pedals cos
    they are cheap and light, but your ones look good too.
