    Awesome! There's a few crazy videos of people riding those through NYC.

    Not sure about the pedals. But I would like to point out that it's a Fixie, so that makes it special.

    I've seen a number of the "extreme unicycling" videos. Not likely to try that. But I also ran across a video of a guy on a mountain bike. He could ride along one rail on a railroad track, and stop. Then jump it to the other rail, either pointing in the same direction or doing a 180 in the process. Well, doing a lot of those unicycle tricks is on a par with jumping the bike like that in bicycling, and I'll never be close to doing that either. So going in a straight line or circle without falling over is my current goal.

    You know you are hard core though if you ride THIS unicycle
