Monday Market – 10-Speed Unicycle

Here is a unique opportunity for any 10-speed or unicycle fan. I like it, but where are the reflectors for safety?

$250 on Craigslist Detroit

Pictured below is a homemade unicycle fitted with sprockets, chains, and an ingenious derailer system. Designed to outmatch the wildest circus stunt performer, -an engineering marvel in my opinion. As a boy I rode unicycles and performed stunts in front of large crowds. Even today, 40 years later I still own my 24″ Schwinn AND my 6+ ft tall giraffe unicycle built by the late Bernard Crandall, whose unicyclist son Floyd gained nationwide fame. But never before have I seen a contraption such as this! Any rising young stars out there? Located south of Sashabaw & Maybee Rds.

Thanks Hugh

      Hi Etienne,

      I just found an ad for this unicycle on craiglist.org. I’m not actually in possession of it. Good Luck.

    I own four unicycles; (2) 24″, (1) 20″ and (1) five-footer. This is the first ten-speed that i’ve seen. Interesting.

    Impossible ! how can you stay up with a freewheel. Fixie is only way it seems to me unless this rider actually goes straight ahead only. Is there a brake?

    I have never seen a unicycle like this and I build unicycles. Bernard Crandall was my Great uncle, my family has been building unicycles for 4 generations. Rex Crandall, Bernard’s brother was my grandfather. He was highly involved too.
