My Miyata seat came in today (Monday, thanks Tommy.) It looks good and
real comfy to ride on, only problem is my Savage wheel bent in half last
night hopping off a 6" curb.. Grrr...

    Well, what kind of rim/spoke number do you have on your rim.  My guess is
that the rim that broke was a 28 hole steel single wall rim, which tend do taco
easily.

As it turns out even the hard-working government workers got the day off.

Have you ever wondered how they manage to sell an entire unicycle for
$75 when a good wheel by itself is $75+? The wheel on the low end
unicycles is not designed for an *** rider or any kind of abuse.

The upgraded unicycles that unicycle.com sells with the Kovachi wheels
are a great deal. With the upgraded wheel you won't have to worry about
the wheel collapsing when going off a curb.

My UPS people delivered today on Monday, wonderful people. I stuck the
Miyata inbetween my legs to only imagine what it would be like to ride
on it. I was desperate to ride on it so I searched a few bike shops
thinking I would build another 24" by 28 spoke wheel... no one had any
handy. I picked up the phone and called unicycle.com I ordered this...
http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=97 without a seat since
I already had one. It will have to do for now until the Profile
crank/hub assembly can be afforded, and it has main cap style bearings
which are good too... Thursday or Friday is the big day.

so maybe bustin that wheel aint that bad.that Savage made the decision
for you,it broke,you killed it,but now you get to be United..

its funny if your Savage folded 2 weeks ago you would'nt have got to go
on that epic Miyata seat adventure,,,and now you end up ordering a uni
with-out a seat

i would have asked for blue one

dont torque those main caps down,or somthing will happen(like it did to
me)and you will get very pissed off to no good..

i'm happy for ya ,but now your waitin for the brown van again

so am I...

I yearn for the day when the man in the brown poop suit comes to my
door. Now instead of saving up all the money to build my Trials Uni I'll
get more time to ride it, just without some trusty Profile cranks/hubs.
It's funny how life works itself out, just the people that you meet, the
events that occur, to ultimately get you to point z from point a.

I'v had good luck with the United trainer- I put at least 30 hrs on it a
month, including lots of hopping, 1-2' drops. I recently swaped out the
stock tire for a very-serviceable-but-very-inexpensive 2.1" nobby tire
for off road. When doing the swap, I found a point in the rim that had
bent out a bit (impact?), and trued it with a wrench. I'v bombed down
hills on it without much issue to the wheel- however, one of the cranks
suffers from intermitant loosness. Yesterday I hopped a flight of stairs
on it, and repeatedly gapped 18". I now clock in at 185 lbs., with
chainge in my pocket.

I agrea, though- they are not made for this kind of abuse. It will
surely fail.
