I was given an old broken bicycle today.
I've got the day off and I've had an idea in my head to make a unicycle recently so today is the day.
I've seen two other designs:
- one that uses the rear triangle and a chain drive
-one that uses the front fork with direct drive using purpose made bearings.
I absolutely stand to be corrected but I couldn't find one like this , that uses the front fork with a chain, on the internet.
The problems that I forsee are that there will not be sufficient chain adjustment and that getting the wheel off will involve splitting the chain . . . here we go . . . and I want this finished by today . . .
Step 1: Parts and Tools.
- A bicycle.
-6mm allen ket, to remove handlebars.
-Adjustable spanner to remove the forks.
-15mm Spanner, for the wheels.
-A crank removing tool.
-A bar to spread the forks.
-A hacksaw to cut the frame.
-A half round file.
-A chain splitter.
-A welder of some sort.
