    This is "Way Out There" but looks like fun

    Ever heard of monocycles (as opposed to unicycles?)
    I wish there were an opportunity to ride one of these things short of trip to China. It certainly would be a topic of conversation, but I'm not sure of what kind of ride it would be.

    On second thought... they may have something here. I've never had to look at clearance signs in parking garages but at speed this could be really cool! If not hypnotizing(sp)?

    The large wheels would make easy work of any bumps in the road, but how an earth do you stop. If you apply any brakes, you would join the outer wheel spinning round.
