<< The information in the book seems pretty good. I hope to build a giraffe
unicycle using it as a guide. The production quality of the Solipaz
publishing books is pretty low end.
I used this book to build my 6' giraffe.
Even though I scrounged up most of the parts and had a friend do the welding,
it ended up costing me about $75US. Then I found a 5' Savage giraffe for $50
that I prefer much better.
The homemade model is quite heavy and cumbersome. Unless you are really into
engineering, it can be quite challenging to get everything adjusted just
I guess my point is if you're looking to build one because it's cheaper, I
would say you're better off hunting garage sales and the newsgroup. Now if
you enjoyed building models when you were a kid, then go for it!
