It's ok that you say unicycles are the best. If you didn't think so, you wouldn't be riding one!

"No bikes allowed." That's funny! Reminds me of some signs I've seen (and ignored) in parking lots. In your case, you could say, "The sign didn't say unicycles!" I'd love to see the looks on people's faces as you unicycle through public places where there are lots of people.

It is good to see that someone has taken up the mantle of militant unicycle activist.

Gnein would be proud.

I use to take my norco unicycle to school, I'd ride from my home to the bus and take it on the bus with me than ride from the bus to school and around in the building, What looks I'd get (maby it was also the blue mohawk) and the comments where priceless. "Hey, you lost the other half of your bike", or "Go back to clown school" Oh the memories. I eventualy found the other half of my bike and gave the unicycle to my brother who trashed it.

Unicycles?? Them things 'aint natural!!

Hey, is Japan the unicycle capital of the world? It seems every time I travel, especially abroad, there is some Japanese unicycle competitive team or demo team picking up their unicycles at the luggage claim.

I talked to one of the guys and he told me that the Japanese team took first place in the unicycle world championships in Beijing, China.

Is that so?

In the UK we have the Polaris Challenge, a 3 day fast mountain marathon open to bikers. One team did it on ATUs. (All Terrain Unicycles)

I just got one, I can't say it's the best though. More like yeah, it looks good while I'm lying on the ground next to it. This thing is harder to learn than algebra. I'll always love bicycles, but I thought it would be cool to learn.
