    I learned to trackstand fairly easily but I could never do it no-handed. I bought a unicycle and didn't ride the fix much for a few weeks. When I tried again, it was a piece of cake. After a half hour, I was sitting comfortably with my foot on the wheel. So go buy a uni: your inner ear will love the workout.

    OK, your post inspired me to get back out and try the no-hander again. After 30 years of riding bikes, I finally got the no-handed trackstand today. Only 14 seconds, but I'm still pretty psyched.

    Next up, reverse circles...
