    Mastery compared to my skillz.

    My wife picked it right back up after 30+ years off the uni.



    Then set it right back down again...

    I have a 20 inch that looks exactly like c0urt's. Don't ride it much, and I'm not as smooth as I once was, but I can still ride it.

    We started having a cyclocross race in the city here 2 years ago - and I work the races. Last year - I watched a guy probably in his 50's ride his unicycle down the city street - jump up on the sidewalk and ride down it towards the city park and the biggest hill in the city (where we had the race) and jump off and look rather disappointed at the race course. Evidently he rides the big hill everyday several times - and here I'm watching people ride the course full of switchbacks and some obsticals once and then some of them walk their bike through the initial steep climb. And I must say the hill is quite the climb up to the top as I've done it many times - and this guy goes and does it SEVERAL times a week on a unicycle. KUDOS to you guys!!

    Cobb's Hill? Used to be my favorite place to run (when I weighed 115). No way I'd ride my unicycle up there.

    unicycles remind me of the B.C. comic strip.

    It's hard enough to get a mtb up it without zigzagging across the face of it (hehe - try doing it at night - I nearly ran over a couple having sex on the grass!!!!)!

    i have rode for about 3 years, got 9 unis, lol...ranging from 20" to 36"

    when i got the 36 i completely stopped riding bikes because its fast enough to commute...decent..distances. but now i hate distance unicycle riding. id much rather just ride a road bike than a 36". because you have no handlebars to distribute the weight on, and you're not able to coast, you get sore after about 10 minutes of riding.

    my 20", however, i love.

    That was some extreme unicycling skills. I still unicycle once in a while, however in the 80's that was my main form of transportation for a few years. We'd boot around town on normal and giraffe (6 foot) unicycles. We were a bit fanatical.

    Not bad. Now see if you can ride atop a skateboard, on your uni.

    That would have been pretty awesome; especially if you were simultaneously doing some kind of juggling act, like with chainsaws or something. And, just to add a degree of difficulty, you could balance a long wooden dowel rod on the tip of your nose, with a saucer spinning on the end of that; like those Asian performers do.

    Well, on second thought, the spinning saucer thing might be a bit over the top, as well as corny; just stick to the chainsaws -- and try not to lose a limb!
