Weirdest thing i've seen on the trail today...

I was going down, and i saw a UNICYCLE! I was like wowzers. That guy must have good balance and coordination. Good thing he had armor on, cuz he's pretty high up too. He was going down steps too and everything.

There's quite a few unicycle mountainbikers around here too. The only problem I have with them is that they put me to shame when they're riding teeters and clearing obstacles I have trouble on.

I cant remember which one it is on, but one of the New World Order or Kranked vids has the most hardcore unicyclist I have ever seen, anyone care to fill in details? He rides down trails that I would most certainly endo on..

If anyone remembers a member called gnein who used to post here some time ago (do a search for "gnein" on the forums). If I remember correctly he was into muni-ing (if I'm spelling it correctly). It's a shame he's no longer with us.
