Picture 3 of 4 from Other hobbies

Here is a close up of the geared hub. Hand made in Switzerland by Florian Schlumpf. Click the gold button on the right with your heel to switch to high (1.5) gear. Click the silver button on the right to get back to 1:1. A lot of people ask me "is unicycling difficult" and it's really not but this thing (laced into a 36" wheel makes a virtual 54er) will seriously mess with your head. I've got friends who can hit top speeds of over 30mph on a geared 36er. I chicken out at around 20 and try not to ride faster than I can run out an unplanned dismount.
