16X custom stand

Recommended Posts

Nice and sturdy. I would cover the top with something soft so it won't scratch the wheel over time.

I think the scratches from the stand will account for maybe 5% if looking at my MSX is anything to go by ūüíÄūüôā

Love it! I'd totally pay you for one of those. I currently have a guitar stand that is too weak and shallow to handle the 16x, and the 3D printed one is too narrow.  And I have no skills with a welder.

Modular Stand Eastern Europe Style.
Threaded Rod M12, 8 x Washers (40mm 4 nuts + 4 nuts with wings,
Dried wood 2 cm width. 18cm height. Length 30 cm
The stand is very stable and on a flat surface it can calibrate a unicycle very accurately.

Been looking at possibly using this adjustable guitar stand for my 16X...

https://www.amazon.com/Foldable-Aluminum-AGS8-Adjustable-Protection/dp/B01MS6176O/ref=sr_1_18?keywords=Guitar%2Bstand&qid=1585353983&sr=8-18&th=1

Just wondering if the tubular steel will support 50 lbs... Anyone have success with this? 

I have a similar one that works well for my V8 but the 16X much wider and almost twice as heavy.

I tried the exact same model and it broke after 4 months. (Plastic is not that tough)

I changed it to another model, initially planned  for motos, but as it is adjustable it works well.

Created a easy to build wooden stand. 1 piece of 2 x 12 lumber cut to 16" length for the base. 2 pieces of 2 x 6 lumber cut to 11 1/2" long for side braces. Four 3" L brackets with 16 screws mounted between the base and side braces. Six 3" wood deck screws mounted through the bottom up in each side brace.

Interesting!  Does the 16x ever rotate forward?

That is nice! Do you find it pretty sturdy?

Not sure to understand. Once in place it does not move, it is really blocked. The only possible instability is on the side when pushed, as the stand is not very large.

Ah ok... looking at your pics again and it seems that the 16X is quite snug in there. Nice mods to the shell! Is that some kind of wrap?

Thanks, yes it is: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000041796591.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.60f36c37ltPxHR

A bit to big to my taste (5mm), requires some work to cut tailor made to the wheel, but does the job of protecting and not sliding when gripping the wheel.
