How to Make Unicycle Snow Chains

at 5:24 am. Filed under DIY Hacks, Other

I would have never thought it would be possible to ride a unicycle in snow, I guess with the right equipment anything is possible.

“I’ve been riding my bicycle to school every day this year but then the snow came… A racing bike just didn’t cut it. It was time to throw the snow chains back on the unicycle.

I first made the chains a few years ago and have since seen similar pictures online. Surprisingly, it is pretty easy to ride under the right snow conditions. If you too want to give it a try, here’s all you need to do:

* First, learn to ride a unicycle. (If it’s not completely obvious, it’s hard to learn in the snow.)
* Next, go to the hardware store and pick up some raw materials. You will need a surprising amount of chin (I used .77″/link chain). ”
