This was Hannah's
birthday present when she turned 2 (Nov, 2000). Built from
a $37 bike from Wal-Mart. It was never been ridden.
I tried to ride it by hanging on to the seat (it's so short that it's
REALLY hard to sit on), but I only managed to ride about four
inches. Eventually I scavenged the hub for another project, so
it is no more.
Some things I wanted to improve upon:
16 spoke steel rim (spokes from the bike were used)
2.6 inch cranks (cut and re-welded from 4-inchers)
Suzue 36 hole hub
Semcycle bearing holders
Here's a clip
of her birthday party (4 Mb).
Make a narrower hub for it (possibly by welding some flanges
onto a bicycle bottom bracket.)
Put a child-size unicycle seat on it
Smaller pedals that are barefoot friendly
Adjustable seat (after she grows a bit)
How much it gets used.
