    Folds more compact than Brompton.

    My new folder. Very compact fold for a 20" wheel.









    Happy April 1st to everyone.

    Since you can only run one brake, I was thinking a disc would be more powerful.

    Schlumpf makes a geared unicycle hub.

    looking at the website, the 2 speed hub seems cool a 24/36" wheel..

    Trials Unicyclists like using Magura Hydraulic rim brakes. lever under the saddle nose.
    including a couple guys that toured Bhutan on their unis'.

    the man himself Florian Schlumpf tours in other countries on his wheel.

    A Schlumpf unit improves just about anything cycling related.

    The trials guys with brakes on their unicycles use them to lock the wheel and pogo over obstacles. That is more skill than I have.

    I think he is just riding backwards, you can do that on a Unicycle
    (and a fixed wheel )

    Motor turning always the same way forward, and going backwards,
    is a whole different gearing.

    Motor bikes have to be legged backwards ..
    I think Harley made a reverse-gear Tranny when all the City cops used trikes,
    in the 50's .

    Yep, I've ridden a Schlumpf unicycle and can confirm this. Just a regular 1:1 gear and a 1:2 gear. Unicycle touring is actually a great way to see the scenery. It puts you in a nice upright position but doesn't allow for much luggage

    Sorry, Failed attempt at humor.


    Yes, Harley's did have a reverse. Modern day Honda Goldwings actually have an electric reverse that works off the starter motor. Very handy with a sidecar.
