Congratulations to Nick & Sophie

On Friday the 24th July we were all out of the office to witness our Nick and Sophie getting married.  The ceremony took place at the Alnwick Treehouse with many friends, family and Unicyclists helping them to celebrate this great day.

We would like to wish Nick and Sophie every happiness for the future.

Nick and Rachael build Impact Unicycles

Bearings, cranks, wheels.... Lots of lovely Impact unicycles to build! Nick still had a long way to go..





Rachael came to the rescue and gave a hand putting the bearings and cranks on.. (note the very manly allen key in back pocket)



Hammer hammer hammer...



Finally got the job finihsed! Well done to Nick who did actually do the majority of the hard work here.

My staff!

Here is what my staff get up to on a sunny lunch time here at UDC.


UDC office antics

It's Wednesday morning and so far today we have eaten snowballs, teacakes, brunch bars and we havent yet had our "tea and biscuit" break...We are having a daft hat day too..

Nick!



Rach!

UDC staff excited by Impact

Paul, Nick and I have all decided to upgrade our Unicycles with Impact parts. After the massive Impact delivery we just couldn't resist the Impact Frames!

This is Paul's hockey Unicycle. He has replaced his frame with a 20" Impact 'Gravity' Longneck Frame - Black. He has also added a Blue KH seatpost clamp and a White Bumper and Handle to the saddle.





I have upgraded my MUni frame to a  24" Impact 'Gravity' Frame - White. I added some Gusset 'Pinhead' Pedals in White and a White Bumper and Handle to the saddle.



Nick has also upgraded his Hockey unicycle with a 20" Impact 'Gravity' Longneck Frame - Black with a White Impact Clamp. You wouldn't believe how many "upgrades" this unicycle has been through as it originally started out as a KH Flatland Unicycle. Nick is definitely the girliest person in the office when it comes to shopping!



Three VERY happy member's of staff here at Unicycle.com.



I suppose we should probably get back to the office now.. It's been a fun morning.



 

 

Autumn is in the air

Well its that time of year again! COLD!

Nick has volunteered to light the fire (mainly because he is after a gold star)





Careful Nicholas!



Looking good..



Nick in his body warmer



Whey! We have Fire! Now all we need is a cup of tea and some biscuits..



 

 

Tandem or Unicycle?

In the office today we had a special cycle in for a spot on maintenance, which technically isn't a bike and if a unicycle is defined by one wheel per person...



Do we look worried?





Paul's got the nack..



Oh this is easy...

UDC prepare for Pennies in the Park



We are going to Thoresby Festival of Cycling or Pennies in the Park as some of you might know it. We are taking our freshly built penny farthings and as they were finished we went for a bit of a test ride.





Hectic week getting these ready but looks like we’re going to make it. See you all there.

 

 

 

Visibility Impaired

Nicks back in the warehouse chopping wood to keep the office nice and toasty.



Being the safety conscious guy that he is, he is wearing the suitable equipment. Although perhaps visibility isn’t want it should be!!

Moving on to the wheel we have the new Nimbus FOSS inner tube with a Nimbus Nightrider tyre, on the new awesome Stealth2 rim with a Nimbus Aluminium Equinox Hub.  Making the wheel super-light.
