Step 2: Abrasions MOUNT the Timpani

Set your unicycle upside down so that it spins freely.

I used electrical tape for the entire mounting process. Just tape it all to the spokes!

Mount the battery pack first. Try to get it really close to the hub of the unicycle wheel, this will keep your momentum and center of gravity more controlled while riding!

Next tape the switch in between a couple of spokes. I chose to place it in a position that I know I wont hit with my heel while riding (this is at the 80 degree position behind my left foot and on the opposite side, but you can ignore that).

Next, mount the inverter box somewhere else. If there is a long length of wire after the inverter, I'd put it at the center. Else, I'd put it closer to the rim... doesn't really matter, you can make any shape you want. And the inverter is light.

To attach the EL wire, just loop it through the spokes (inside them) and tape it in a few places to keep form :)
EL wire if great stuff and this is a really cool use for it - top work - big respect. <br> <br>DZ
this is way out of order it is amazing
&lt;&lt;&lt; i love unicycling
I like how 'unplanned dismount' sounds nice than 'faceplant' or 'crash' (ahem. I am -not- able to ride a unicycle.)
it really is more like an unplanned dismount; with a unicycle, you almost never really fall off because your feet just fly off the pedals right to the ground, no crash at all.
that they do.
a unicycle can be practical for cruising purposes if you buy a 36 inch. I kinda want one. (or alternatively I could purchase a pennyfarthing and cut the back wheel off.)
dude! i havnt found many people who do this, i pimped my normal street unicycle nd painted it golld, but i have a giraffe ive been trying to think of what to do with!
I absolutely love to ride my unicycle, I ride everywere, but riding it w/ lights like that would be completely awsome
This is Awesome! I love unicycles! And riding them is even more fun!! But an light unicycle? EVEN BETTER! Nice job!
Dude! I don't even think I remember how ride a unicycle, now I need to remember! Great 'ible!
