you stab em' we'll slab em'--you want it we'll build it

Hey Folks
Been getting somes calls about Unicycle frames... I still make them and like to make them. I don't ride them ( confession ) but I can build them...I can build lots of stuff that I don't really want to ride, like 16" BMX bikes, I would knock my teeth out with my knees !!!
Uni frames built to order, any wheel size up to a 36er...So cute...

Nice!

Will your unicycles accept the 2008Schlumpf geared unicycle hubs, and/or would you build to the bearing specifications of those hubs? One has a 40mm spec and the other 42mm.

Info: from http://www.schlumpf.ch/uni_engl.htm

Standard hub FSU:

Crankarms: for square end axles

Bearings:
- diameter: 40mm
- width: 12mm

Quality: sealed high quality ball bearings

Distance between centerline of left to centerline of right bearing:
- hubs of model year 2007: 90mm
- hubs of model year 2008: 100mm

Muni hub KHU:

Crankarms: ISIS

Bearings:
- diameter: 42mm
- width: 12mm

Quality: sealed high quality ball bearings

Distance between centerline of left to centerline of right bearing: 100mm

Howdy...
Wow thats a lot of #'s...
My frames take a 40mm bearing... Otherwise I can work with all the other specs.. Best thing to do would be to send me the wheel or hub and I can build around it..
Thanks
Rick

Rick built my first V-frame road uni, a custom shape with a separate seat tube and handlebar mount. His work product is impeccable (you just can't peck it!). Well worth it.

I'm in the UK, which would make sending you a wheel/hub difficult, but if you *can* build frames that'll take the new KH-Schlumpf ("Muni hub KHU") hubs, I'd be interested too...

Hey ladies and gents...
Doing some research on the Schlumpf hub and I should be able to help you out. The standard hub would be no problem and no extra charge. For the muni version I would have to make some special bearing holders to accept the 42mm bearings. So yes I can make them...
Cost is...standard 375$--- 400$with brake mounts
muni 42mm 425$---450$ with brake mounts
includes choice of color and custom sizing...
Feel free to e-mail me directly, thanks

I am very happy with the 700c/29" unicycle Rick built for me. In fact, I plan to order another soon.
