24 Nimbus E-sport Unicycle with £70 OFF

This weeks Deal Of The Week is the 24" Nimbue E-Sport Race unicycle.  For one week only this fantastic unicycle is available for just £270. Thats a saving of £70, but only until the 4th October.



The Nimbus E-Sport race unicycle is at the top of its game with the best unicycle parts and newest technologies. Comes with the latest generation Nimbus one-piece aluminium (90mm wide) hub for optimum race performance and durability. The super stiff Nimbus VCX cranks give the most efficient transfer of power directly to your wheel, meaning all your power goes solely into propelling you forward to victory. The Nimbus aluminium E-Sport frame is narrow enough at the top to minimise catching your knees but still has enough crown to enable a secure foot placement for one-foot riding. With the E-sport frame being 300mm long (from crown to top of seatpost) this puts the seatpost clamp nicely out of the way minimising any discomfort.

The E-Sport Race comes with a 559mm rim and a thin tyre. So, it is designed and optimized to ride on a track. This unicycle conforms to the IUF’s (International Unicycle Federation) Track racing rules and unicycle specifications 2B.2 See below for full details or click here to see IUF rule book document.

The 6th British Unicycle Road Race

The 6th British Unicycle Road Race





The Horwich unicycle road race is now in its 6th year!!


June 17 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm









The race will be held on the 17th June 2018, with the Unicycle race starting at 1:05pm

Entry fee


£15 (Adults) £10 (u18)

The race consists of 7 (1 mile) laps of Horwich Town Centre course. You need to be at the start, next to the town hall well before 1pm. When the race leader has completed 7 laps, all other competitors will be finished as they pass the finishing line. Some competitors may be finished earlier to ensure the course is free for the next race.


Parking


This year it is likely to be difficult as Horwich Leisure Centre (BL6 5PY) is being redeveloped and has lost its car park, so parking will be in local streets. Be aware that the roads around Horwich are closed for the day but you can still access the Leisure Centre from Exit 6, M61.

Entry


You can enter on-line before the event but it’s much easier to complete the TLI Cycling entry forms and pay (cash only) on the day. As I need to sort the race numbers out, please facebook message or e-mail me at [email protected]. The commentator likes to have some information on the riders so could you give me some brief details or I will make it up!


Registration on the day:


On arrival, register at the Horwich Bowling Hut (behind the town hall), Jones Street, Horwich, BL6 7AQ. You MUST sign a form for the insurance and get your race number. Entry Fee £15 (Adults) £10 (under 18) payable in cash on the day. If you are under 16 you must get your parent or guardian to complete a consent form.



We usually gather at the small grassy area next to the town hall, bring juggling stuff and make a day of it. Toilets are next to the bowling hut and there are a few shops and pubs around to buy food.



There will be trophies for first, second and third male, first and second lady, and, first and second under 16.



You MUST wear a cycle helmet.

Unicycle v Bike in Hill Climb Race

hillclimb

Last night at the local cycle club hill climb I turned up on my Nimbus 36" Unicycle.  The course was 2.66km long going up 150m on Clay Bank near Stokesley.  The aim was not to come last!  Riders set off at 1 minute intervals.  By the top I was caught  by one bike and had the rider in front of me well in sight.

So time on the unicycle = 9:27, my best time on the racing bike = 8:04.  So conclusion is on this course was that I was faster on 2 wheels... but not by that much.  I also still beat over 12 bikes on the unicycle.

Unicycles on a Velodrome!

Check out this awesome video of Dan Kent and Cameron Peacock on the Street Velodrome at Stockton Cycling Festival. They were faster than pretty much all the other bikes that had a go! Looks like so much fun!

36" Nightfox - the smaller persons unicycle

The Nimbus Nightfox  was designed to allow almost anybody to ride a 36" unicycle. The legs of the frame are adjustable instead of using a traditional seatpost.

Nightfox5

The Nightfox frame incorporates the Shadow Handle into the design as well so you can ride as far as you like

Nightfox4

The taller rider can raise the frame up allowing space between the Nightrider tyre and the Nightfox frame to incorporate riding gear in a unique place

NightfoxFrame3

This unicycle design allows many different riding choices from riding across the country to riding across town!
