Fitting brakes to Unicycles

You basically have two main options, Disc Brake or a Hydraulic rim brake (Magura)

For a rim Brake you will need a frame with Magura mounts welded to the frame (Alot of Muni frames already have these) they will look like this

MaguraTabsIf the frame has these mounts then all you need to do is get a Magura brake, some Magura clamps and a brake lever mount and you have everything you need. Here at Unicycle.com UK we have a Starter brake kit which contains all you need to get riding with a brake.


For a Disc brake setup there are two paths you can take, Internal or external.


For this option you will need a Disc Hub* (such as the Nimbus Oracle Disc Hub), Nimbus D’brake (if your frame does not have a disc brake tab), Brake lever mount and a Disc brake.

*we offer a wheel building service

For this option you will need a pair of disc compatible cranks (such as the Kris Holm Dual hole Spirit Cranks), Nimbus D’Brake (if your frame does not have a disc brake tab, a few washers may be required), Brake lever mount and a Disc brake.

19" Nimbus 'Dominator2' Rim

The Nimbus 'Dominator2' Rim has been supplied as standard on our Nimbus Trials Unicycles for some time now, but we now have them in stock as a separate item.



The Dominator2  has a super strong box section that has a fantastically rigid construction that will build into an ultra strong 19" Wheel.  The design incorporates a deep inner section which makes it easy to get the tyre on and off.  The bead seating area contains a retaining lip so allowing it to be run at low pressures and withstand side hops without the bead being rolled off its seating area.


UDC's nice new rack.

Paul and Nick have been working hard making a new rack for all the rims. After alot of drilling and hammering they finished it! I cast my eye over it and gave it the UDC seal of approval. Good work lads!!

New stock, new catalog

Rachael is engrossed in the new wholesale catalog finding new shiny bits to buy! She has already claimed the nice shiny purple rim that has just arrived for Marco in Germany. Sorry Marco!
