Nope, it's a small porta-potty, because when he hits the rear brake, he is going to CRAP himself!

Well, that's one way to deal with getting a flat.

Well, okay - duh! Now I see what it is....
The thing that looks like a rocket pack or porta-potty on the rear is a counter wweight.
That smart-@ss little Chinachap is riding a unicycle.

Im not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed...

I will never forget my best friends younger brother repairing a flat on his front wheel - fixing it and off we went riding

He popped a wheelie in the park and to his horror the front wheel fell off, as he had not put the nuts back on tight enough - he kept peddling for as long as possible knowing in his heart he faced the inevitable face plant ..of course being kids we laughed our asses off at his predicament

if he had been thinking quick enough a good hard push to tilt the bike further up and slip off the back.

i did that a few times when i was better at wheelie-ing. leaning back further to make sure i came off the back of the bike made taking the front wheel off less scary.
