frequently broken spokes? Unicycle hubs targeting minimal weight usually have small flanges, causing trouble when you need to replace a spoke: it makes such impossible without removing the bearings.
On the other of the spoke you can now have a rim that does the opposite:
This rim allows replacing of a spoke without taking the even the tires off.
The bedding is perfect for fragile Foss tubes, but not for those who want suspension from holes in the rim. eclat[1] eclat[2] eclat[3] Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
no hands Gee, I often joke I'm riding my unicycle without hands. This guy replaces a tube without hands, amazing! Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
lights - part 1 This is a great light to keep faster bicyclists on a safer distance when they overtake too fast.

lights - part 2 And the same company also creates a smart front light that definitely would have prevented at least one very bad fall I once had in the dark:

Lock nuts New kind of "digit lock", certainly food (or a tiny snack) for lock-pickers, but anyway inventive and tiny locks! Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
traffic safe personal audio system Recently there was IUF rulebook proposal about banning personal audio during competition in general. Just ago I saw this pledge for a traffic safe personal audio system. Sounds great for long distance unicyclists. Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
Tepper In unicycling I came across many people. One man who I respect enormous for teaching people positive things is Allan Tepper. When I complained that I missed him at UNICON I was told he's about to retire. And now even the newspapers start to write about that.

Mr Tepper; if you read this; I only met you 3 times, but thank you so much for all you did for a lot of people. I'm sure your positive approach will be passed on by those you've teached. Your contributions will certainly be remembered! Wishing you the best! Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
paralympics OK, to some is riding on one wheel -in stead of two- a challange. And some may find this amazing. But what about doing bicycle races without forearms? Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
iPad from Amsterdam to Paris And I could summarise it without debate into 3 sentences: Smartphones make people stupid. And a iPad is just a iPhone for vision impaired. Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
devil didi Many years ago, not too long after the breakdown of the Berlin wall, a engineer of the trabant factory started to show up in the Tour the France, in a very obvious costume. After I found out his name, Dieter Senft, I had some correspondence with him. Written letters, as there hardly wasn't any internet. Today the internet spreads news rapidly. For example his newest creation: the biggest working bicycle in the world. Congratulations, impressive big job! :) Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments

Schwalbe continues A long while ago I tried to motivate Schwalbe to make me a custom tire. Without success, it seemed. Until I just saw their new products, including 3 new spike tires. Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments

ted This TEDx talk explains exactly why unicyclist.org and unicycle.tv started before youtube.

It's even demonstrated with and example of a unicyclist.
It's true: I was reading about coasting before, but only after I saw it done by others I got convinced and motivated about it. That's what video does. Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments

blind unicyclist Last year I was in Zurich, in Die Blinde Kuh, experiencing how it's like to be blind.
Being blind doesn't stop Emma Liu from unicycling!

3th stage Giro Last year I did a unicycle performance in advance of the finish of the 3th stage of the Giro d'Italia. Some Belgian guy won.
Today was again the 3th stage of this year edition. That Belgian guy -Wouter Weylandt- had a fatal crash, leaving behind a pregnant girlfriend.

3 million unicyclist I'm not the only unicyclist who got punished for unicycling on the pavement while the law instructs to do so.
In New Zealand the case ended in court in favor for the one who wasn't breaking any law.
And a simular case in the US got legal-wise also a unique developing. He's now demanding $3 million in damages for the violation of his constitutional rights.
UPDATE: here's a video of an interview with Kyle on the matter. Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
electric There are more and more self-balancing segway alike unicycles out there. Like the Ryno, the Honda U3-X, and the Tango. But I think I would like the one that looks the most like a unicycle: the new SBU. Written by Leo Vandewoestijne on   0 comments
Ride for Gary There is a zillion charities people ask sponsoring for per unicycled mile. Here's one more. To me firemen are a special kind of people, who put their life in hands of another to safe the life of someone else. So yes, Gary deserves something in return.

PC Amanda police on unicycle - Amanda GallacherLast month I asked Joe Hodges whatever happened with Amanda Gallacher.
Today the Daily Mail provided the answer:

Cogratz! But geeez Amanda;
