Miyata seat on a Schwinn/ standstills

Post by Nyc.. » Sat, 07 Apr 2001 03:10:39


I recently bought a Sem/Monty conversion ($379) and my friend David Stone got
a United/Monty ($269) from Unicycle.com.  They're both great.  The Sem seems
indestructible, though the United is probably virtually indestructible too.  
It has a big advantage in the adjustable seat post clamp.  I'd probably get
the United if I did it over again.

From what I read on Unicycle.com, John Drummond will convert your Schwinn to
a Monty for $189, but you keep your original Viscount style seat.  Learn from
my experience.  You don't want the Viscount seat on a trials uni.  After a
week of hopping and grabtbing the seat, your fingers will feel like you've
been beating them with a mallet!  I had John assemble a Miyata seat ($48)
plus carbon fibre base ($56).  The base was drilled for the Schwinn style
seat post.  The carbon fibre base is really solid.  It doesn't bend the way
the Miyata seats do.

But seems to me you would spend $189 for the wheelset plus around $104 for a
seat, and possibly $10 to $24 for a decent pair of pedals.  So you're up to
$303 now?  Maybe you have access to welding equipment and you can weld a
Miyata seat base to a Schwinn seat post.  You've still spent $237.  Why not
just buy a brand new United for $269 and keep your Schwinn?

Just curious, what kind of standstill can Jimothy the fool do?  

Just my 2 cents.

To get a Miyata seat to fit on the Schwinn frame, you'll need to drill a
hole through the Miyata seat post at the correct height for you. The
seat posts for the Miyatas and Schwinns are the same diameter so the
Miyata seat post will fit in the Schwinn frame. Make sure that the hole
is square with the seat as you aren't able to easily straighten it once
it's drilled.

Miyata seat on a Schwinn/ standstills

Post by John Hoote » Sat, 07 Apr 2001 15:13:03

It would be great if a Schwinn/Sem Deluxe seat post were available with
a Miyata seat post mount. Set up costs for a custom job would make it
prohibitively expensive. I wonder if there would be enough demand for it
to be profitable for someplace like the Unicycle Source to manufacture
and sell.

This is already possible, as long as you can find a bike seatpost of the appropriate diameter.
Just order the Wilder Seatpost rails attachment from unicycle.com, which fits a Miyata seat and
allows the use of bike seatposts.  With the appropriate bike seatpost diameter you can put a
Miyata seat on any unicycle.

Miyata seat on a Schwinn/ standstills

Post by Nyc.. » Sun, 08 Apr 2001 05:58:15

It can be done, but you would still need to drill holes in the post, and cut
it to the right size.  I would only want to attempt the drilling with a drill
press.  I guess one advantage of the Wilder rail would be that you could
adjust the seat angle, and the front to back position.  I wonder if it would
be much heavier than a standard post?

Isn't the Wilder post 27mm?  Thicker than Sem and Schwinn posts?

Oh, sorry about that. My paragraph was not very well written. All I meant
was that I have seen him(Jimothy) on a coker, but never in a still stand.
My dad has seen the same guy riding down a busy street while playing a
banjo. He is a porfessional clown,and claims to be the world's only
banjo-unicyclist; see his website: www.dafoo.com  Catchy isn't it! He has
some unicycling pictures if you look.

Jeff


I recently bought a Sem/Monty conversion ($379) and my friend David Stone
got
a United/Monty ($269) from Unicycle.com.  They're both great.  The Sem
seems
indestructible, though the United is probably virtually indestructible
too.  
It has a big advantage in the adjustable seat post clamp.  I'd probably
get
the United if I did it over again.

From what I read on Unicycle.com, John Drummond will convert your Schwinn
to
a Monty for $189, but you keep your original Viscount style seat.  Learn
from
my experience.  You don't want the Viscount seat on a trials uni.  After
a
week of hopping and grabtbing the seat, your fingers will feel like
you've
been beating them with a mallet!  I had John assemble a Miyata seat ($48)

plus carbon fibre base ($56).  The base was drilled for the Schwinn style

seat post.  The carbon fibre base is really solid.  It doesn't bend the
way
the Miyata seats do.

But seems to me you would spend $189 for the wheelset plus around $104
for a
seat, and possibly $10 to $24 for a decent pair of pedals.  So you're up
to
$303 now?  Maybe you have access to welding equipment and you can weld a
Miyata seat base to a Schwinn seat post.  You've still spent $237.  Why
not
just buy a brand new United for $269 and keep your Schwinn?

Just curious, what kind of standstill can Jimothy the fool do?  

Just my 2 cents.

In a message dated 4/5/2001 1:19:42 PM Eastern Daylight Time,

Hey all,
I have thought about a monty conversion with my current 24" Schwinn. I
have seen pictures with a Miyata seat (maybe it was Dan Heaton?), but how

would I do that? The miyata seat won't fit the Schwinn post, right?
       Also, what is considered an "average" standstill? I have seen a
guy on a coker(Jimothy the Fool? I can't remember his real name) in our
city, but I haven't met him yet. Anyway, this is the only place for help
on learning.

Thanks everyone!

There isn't any "Wilder Post"; you use any seatpost diameter you want.  I've drilled holes for the
Semcycle system by just putting the post in the frame first, and then drilling the hole in the
post by inserting the drill bit into the hole in the frame.  Not as "proper" as using a drill
press but it worked.

Weight is probably fairly similar with the Wilder because the attachment unit is heavier but
you're using a ligher aluminum post.

Being able to adjust seat angle with the wilder system definately improves seat comfort.

-Kris.

Miyata seat on a Schwinn/ standstills

Post by John Chil » Sun, 08 Apr 2001 09:02:23

Does the Wilder seatbase rails attachment still fit the plastic Miyata
seatbase?

I recently got a Wilder seatbase attachment for my carbon fiber seat.  Just
for kicks I tried putting it on a plastic Miyata seatbase and it didn't fit.
  The holes are in the right place, but the Wilder attachment is just a tad
too long to fit in the recessed area in the plastic Miyata seatbase.  It
could be made to fit by griding a little bit of the platic in the Miyata
seatbase away and/or by griding a little bit of metal off the Wilder
attachment.  But with everything stock, it will not fit.

Maybe I just got an odd-sized batch.

I took cello lessons from an early age, so the switch to banjo was fairly
easy. I had a banjo (even took lessons for a year) when I was in my ***s.
I took up banjo specifically so I could play while riiding. But I gave it
away and haven't played an instrument on a uni in a long time. Cello on a
unicycle? That would be interesting!

This was a design flaw on the original design and has since been corrected.
