My new bike
New bike , well half a bike but twice the fun, no chain, no gears to worry about etc. A new Nimbus 24 inch free style unicycle with the latest unicycle hub technology ISIS hub with 125mm Q- Ax cranks , the wheel has 48 spokes for extra strength and for a slightly overweight rider it's perfect. I haven't ridden a unicycle in 20 years but managed to do 50 mtrs down the street this morning . But it looks like I need to start from scratch again and learn the basics , next step learn to free mount instead of holding onto the neighbor's fence !. I spent about an hour & a half this morning learning to ride again and it was a good workout in this humid weather & cheaper than going to a sports gym !
