Couple more of Brad's bike


I do not know why he insists on running a riser bar, riser stem, and spacers, so please don't ask me...love the over-the-top color!

It's all I had laying around for a stem that short. I'm too cheap to buy another bar when that bar is just fine...

Flip the bar over!

...or for that matter, flip the bar AND stem over!

Where do the rims, spokes, and tires come from? Also, how much would a 36er frame & fork cost?

Mike said...

what about strain on the seat collar area? that seems to be a pretty serious layback on the seat post.

I am in the process of convincing myself that i need one.

Stenger - parts mostly available from unicycle.com or elsewhere online. Pricing is all on my website, go read up - www.waltworks.com.

Mike - that's what seatstays are for! :) Seriously, it's steel, and it's beefy. No way in hell could you damage the seat tube by sitting on the saddle.

Brad,

Congratulations on your crazy bike! I look forward to your ride impressions.

I'll cover specific build details when I write it up. Wheels were a piece of cake with the right components.

Mike: You need one. :) It's not fast, not nimble but it's fun as heck to ride; it starts my commute to work off right. With my build, it wasn't cheap(I suspect it cost Walt a hair or two with my non-standard requests). It was easily the best money I've spent all year and Walt has been an absolute dream to work with.

I can vouch for one thing Brad said: Walt is amazing to work with--I couldn't believe the time that he spent on the details and answering my stupid questions.

Man, that thing is loony tunes. I wanna see pics of someone riding a wheelie on it.
