A premium price , but the Swiss Schlumpf company makes a 2 speed unicycle wheel.

I have found their 2 speed cranksets great ! I have 1 in my folding bike.

Florian is a unicycle guy, he used the planetary gear Mech,

to have a 24" wheel, kick in to have a 36" wheel advantage for road riding.


Another special option, the Pugsly rim and tire gets used in a fat tire Uni. made in both 24/26''..

I recall seeing a video of a couple guys touring the mountain trails in Bhutan.
on unicycles .. they fitted brakes with the lever under the nose of the saddle.
to lock up the wheel to pogo bounce in clearing un ridable sections.


A few years ago I saw the fleeting flash of someone going thru town at traffic speeds
on a 36" wheel.
