Unicycle Spoke Calculator

How to work out your spoke length

Here at Unicycle.com we are the unicycle specialists, so of course we support the building and maintenance of unicycle. We have built in to our website a tool that allows you to work out the length of the spokes you need to build your unicycle or penny farthing.

The spoke calculator has built in a drop down menu to allow you to select the hub and rims.  Should you wish to work out a spoke length for a rim or hub that is not on the drop down menu you can just type in the figures.

Within the spoke calculator is a mini FAQ on how to measure spokes, hubs and rims.

The EUC Summer team have just released their workshop and competition schedule for this years event. As this event is associated with EJC (European Juggling Convention) the unicycle events will be organised over 10 days, not the normal 3 days.

Although EUC is the Extreme Unicycle Championships, it has a broad interest for riders of all ability from the absolution beginner to world champions.

The main competitions for the week will be loaded towards the end of the event and there is a special registration for riders who only want to come for the main competitions.
