|Q. How to cut down your seatpost|
The shortest seatpost we offer is 220mm. Any seatpost length will give you a range of 100mm in height. While this will be suitable for many people it may not be suitable for you. If you are too tall you can order a longer seatpost, if you are too short and don't want to reduce your wheel size a good option is to cut down your seatpost. By cutting down your seatpost you shift the range of heights available downwards.
The simplest and cleanest way of doing this is with a pipe cutter. Measure how much you need to cut off (keeping this to a minimum) and mark. Gently tighten the blade of the seat post cutter to your mark, clamping it in place before rotating the seatpost. (Holding the handle of the seat post cutter turn the seatpost towards you otherwise it can spiral and damage your seatpost.) Tighten the blade gently every 360
|Q. How to use your Unicycle stand|
If you already have an unicycle you may have figured out that they are quite hard to stand up. They won't lean against a wall very well, being freestanding is not an option and it gets tiresome having to hold them all the time you're not riding what's the solution? A unicycle stand could help.
Available to buy separately or as part of a unicycle learner pack, they appear to be straight forwards but can actually prove quite tricky, here are instructions for the inexperienced stand user:
- Make sure the stand is stood the correct way up the wide short bit is the base with the longer thinner bit vertical.
- Choose which direction you want your unicycle to face.
- Hook the rear crank through the gap in the middle of the upright section.
- Rest the wheel on the base as far forwards as possible, preferably with the tyre touching the lip at the front.
-Carefully lean the unicycle frame back into the curve of the upright section and let go!
