Build a Short And Tall Unicycle


Build your own direct drive unicycle

Build your own Short Unicycle with our DIY unicycle plans!

Challenge both your building skills as well as your balance skills with this robust direct drive unicycle. The frame can be easily made by hand using only mild steel tubing and standard bicycle components, even the axle. This fun to ride unicycle is a great beginner’s unicycle as it can take any abuse, and will last for a long time with little or no maintenance.

Riding a unicycle is both challenging and fun.

You can build your own unicycle using any size wheel and customize the look and feel to suit your style. You will only require the most basic tools such as an angle grinder, welder and a hand held drill to turn a few dollars worth of steel into a high quality unicycle. Even the seat can be made using the most basic materials, so you will be able to do it yourself on a minimal budget.

Our DIY Unicycle is made for comfort and durability.

Riding a unicycle is a great workout for both your legs and your agility, and you can ride a short unicycle virtually anyplace, even off the road if you have the skills. Using a large 26 inch mountain bike wheel and tire makes the unicycle easier to ride and much more comfortable for longer distances, so you can ride as far and as long as your skills will let you. Learning to ride a unicycle is as much fan as building one.
