    man ..
    winter.. stupid old man winter.
    its ok for awhile then i start wanting to ride my unicycle all the time again .
    then you go outside... and its snowing. .. snow.. ice,
    hail . sleet.. cold wind..
    im sick of it after about the first month.
    and yes i am aware of those lucky dogs in the warmer places on earth who dont really have to put up with this.
    but i do.. so, im curious..
    what do you do in winter.?
    how can someone who usually goes outside
    get in the practice.. have fun and learn tricks..
    when its 14 below zero?
    id really like to know.. this is frustrating me!
    thanks for any replys.

    i feel your pain, i live in canada, there is about two and a half feet of snow on the ground now and winter is just starting!!

    i haven't uniied as of yet this winter, but not because ofthe snow....my uni is broken, and i'm waiting for it to be fixed, i should get it monday(i better get it monday, i haven't uniied in like a month and a half!!!) anywayas far as winter uniing goes, i'm not sure how it'll feel, i've never uniied in winter (this is my first winter since i've learned to uni) i guess a studded tire wouldn't hurt. other than that, i don't know what to say........it's not gonna stop me from riding, i can tell you that.

    maybe if you get a wider tire you'd be able to ride on the snow once it hardens a bit (it could work.)

    that`s all i have to say about that.

    here we are.....i like copy paste....goes faster


    hey porcelain uni, i don't know about winter tricks, you can to go down a snowed hill, that should be fun....????...



    as for my tire, i'll have a 2.1 inch huchensen (that is most likely not written right....BUT I DON'T CARE!!!!)
    my theory about the riding on snow thing could very well not work, i just figured it migth be possible.....the snow gets pretty hard here sometimes.....

    i should get my uni soon....i can't wait..


    anyway, gnein

    crazy.?

    really now..
    well . im a little on the edge myself.
    unicycling down a hill isnt so bad ..
    have you ever done ramps or anything
    one day i got bet a hundred bucks i wouldnt uni' down one
    i guess it was about ... 10 ft.
    i told them that wouldnt even be enough to pay the doctor
    bill. . lol
    but,
    well if anything else pops up in your mind .. dont argue with the voices. just go for it
