    That touring unicycle is SWEET! I believe unicycles are the ultimate fixed geared cycles, you use muscles that you never knew you had to stablize yourself from all directions. I'll have to try a touring unicycle one of these days as they look very awesome!

    Try www.unicycle.com, or you can order Coker's direct from Coker Tire.

    Well no. There are no bike stores in North America that carry any unicycles worth buying. You'll only find low quality norco unicycles in stores. DO NOT buy these. They are dramatically lower quality than the equivalent price wise online. Unicycle.com is the place.. or municycle.ca in Canada.

    The reason my handle broke is because it is a brand new design that had a flaw. The new ones will be much stronger. It just took one wave of testers to prove its flaw.

    Let me reccomend the KH 36er. It is by far the best touring unicycle out there.

    Wow...

    How 'fast' can you cruise on a flat road?
    How does hill climbing with a unicycle compare with a two wheeler?
    Are steep downhills terrifying ?
    How far did y'all travel on a good day?
