One is the Loneliest Number

Again, surfing the web, I found this gem.

The owner used a 29'r Rick Hunter unicycle and converted it to a 650B Uni, probably the first. Talk about an ULTRA-NICHE
And so, I salute you.

Hi, I am the owner of this unicycle. I had a 48 hole 650b rim in my bike part stash, and I used the inexpensive unicycle.com square taper unicycle hub, and Sugino unicycle crank arms. The large Pacenti tire works well off road, and I presently have a Col de la Vie tire (approx. 38mm) on it for my in-apartment riding practice on the smooth, wood floor. Since I am yet to try a
700c wheel on this unicycle it is not really a conversion. I also intend to build a smaller wheel
26"/559 bsd with long cranks for more gnarly offroad riding. Of course the Magura brake mounts are placed for use with a 700c rim so I have to forgoe brakes unless I run that wheel size. Chris in Davis, CA
