hey fellow abnormaly well balanced friends
how r u?
i'm just wondering how you first learned(trough a friend or whatever) to unicycle, and with what...and anything else that might be worth knowing.
some guy that was in the same course as i'm taking (but a year ahead of me, so i didn't really know him too well)
had brought his uni to show his friend...i tried it, and went like 15 feet on the sixth try. i was all excited and the guy (btw he a great friend now) said i was great too. so i borrowed it and learn to ride it (with a bit of a lack of balance...i could turn but one side)
i had about three or four hours of practice on that uni, and the guy is now in hhis province for the summer...so i bought my own...and now i'm better than him...gnein
i learned on a 16" uni, i wouldn't recommend that, because the wheel is too small...it can get out from under you in an instant.
now i have a 24" wheel(it's a crappy, no-name rim) with 6" crank, and a seat that's most likely made in taiwan.
i'm not sure what kind of frame it is...i ordered it from lambert cycles, but i don't know if they make it or just sell it???
on a different note,
i can now hack a drop off almost three feet high, jump about a foot and a half high(on something)
i can go backwards about ten feet...then i stop a go froward again...i don't fall
i can't do much...but i just really started riding like a mounth ago.. and i don't have all that much time to practice...i work nights and often sleep days (i sometimes work 12 to 15 hours at a time... so i have the right to sleep all day!!)
anyway that's my story...what's yours
