Muni First Impression

Got the SUN XL Unicycle home filled the Huge Volume Tire. Put the pedals on (cheap plastic) and rode around the block. Good was the huge 20 X 4.5 inch tire. It will be a lot of fun to ride when I get used to all that rubber on the ground. Not to easy to turn. So I added alot more air and took it out on a trail in the woods behind my house. Again alot of fun but the cranks are way to short and I cannot move this heavy wheel very easy. So I will have to get longer cranks and I know has um cheap for $ 20 - 30 a pair. In the mean time for comparison I added an old pair of 170 mm
cranks ( they look funny and If I were to keep them would need to grind off the chain ring arms on the drive side. I did try to ride it abit but the long arms are strange but much easier to get the wheel moving. I will do some research on crank length vrs wheel size before I bother to order any size. I really wanted to get in a Road ride before the rain hit this morning so I put the MUNI away and rode about 7 miles on the Lemond Fillmore with the new Velocity Deep V wheels and those sealed bearing hubs are really nice. More on the Fillmore and the Muni later.........
