Hi all,

Here is a link to a picture of my MUni, which I've been riding for the last few months.  All going
well, these should be available for sale by NUC (through unicycle.com).

The CrMo frame is designed to closely fit around a 24x3" tire, and to fit a strong hub/crank setup
(e.g. Profile's).  The fork stays are ovalized, and the square fork crown is specifically designed
to hold the foot securely for gliding.  Note that the fork crown in the picture is slightly
different than the production model, which will be a bit lower profile.

Cheers,

Kris Holm.

Kris,

Looks pretty sweet! I take it the brakes are Maguras? If so will the
production frame have dedicated mounts as well?

Cheers,
Neil

The frame will have "Monty  mod-bike" style brakemounts.  These are different than the normal
Magura mount in that they clamp securely onto two attachment points on the frame (instead of one
point.  This means that no brake booster is required- an advantage because most boosters don't fit
over a 3" tire.

The frame will also have a mount for disk brakes.  This is a bit premature because disk hubs don't
exist yet (at least in production), but at least it will be there if needed.

-Kris.

Will the frame come with the same anti-gravity device to hold itself
completely upright with no assistance like in your photo? It's marvellous
what they can do these days ;)

That's the autobalance system- sorry I forgot to mention it :)
