CRAP! Bent something again!

Breaking your uni is like a car crash. You see a lot of pictures but you
never think it's going to happen to you.

Stick that in your Sig and smoke it.

I was out with my Summit Uni doing some trials stuff on those concrete
cylinders on campus (pics in my gallery for those who dont know what
Im talking about) when I did something pretty dumb. I jumped and did a
crank grab on the lip of the skinny blue cylinder but my balance was off
so I jumped off just to make the regular crank stall. I dont know what
happened, but I must not have jumped far enough or I jumped too far.
What Im pretty sure happened was I landed the fall down on the uni but
then I didnt stick the landing and then I fell off and then I heard a
horrible noise. When I rode it around after that I could feel something
was bent.

When I got back to my room I didnt asses the situation right away.
Actually the first thing I did was look up crank arms on unicycle.com.
It wasnt uni-till I was talking to Zach Jucha on AIM that I finally
decided to take off the crank to lay it on the table to get a good look
at it. I took of the pedal and laid it down and saw that the screw-in
part was wobbling like a mad man.

THANK GOD!

Wooh, talk about a big scare. I really wasnt in the mood to pony up 70
bucks for new cranks. Zach was the first to hear the good news. Anyway
Im minus a unicycle uni-till I can get to the bike shop tomorrow and
buy some new pedals.

Wait a second.. Im broke :(

Man that sux.....You should look on ebay for pedals. I just got some old
style Snafu's for $15 plus shipping. and he only sold 2 so he should be
putting the other 3 back up for auction.

What kind of pedals they were. At least Wellgo makes pretty good stuff.
DMR is an other good brand when buying from bike shops.

what happened to me was that the part of the cranks where you***
your pedal was ... well ...screwed
since I did not want to change cranks and pedals already
a friend of mine (with heavy tool machinery) managed to***a wire
in-between the crank and the pedal.
now I am unable to part crank and pedal (they are fitted strongly
together) but I am able to wait for the next crash
(not me: unable to ride, but those who use this Uni of mine)

They were actually Wellgo :p

I was actually contemplating getting new pedals earlier because i really
didn't like them too much and the pins are filed completely off from
use.
