Geared uni's are made. I've got one on order. It's a 36" wheel that can run direct drive or 1.5 overdrive. That will be a great commuting machine.

You speaketh blasphemy! Don't you know that a unicycle is the ultimate single speed/fixed gear cycle? With all the karma that goes with it. Why would anyone dare monkey with perfection?

I saw a guy this morning on a uni. Lights and everything. From behind from about 1/4 mile I thought he was on a bike, but as I got closer I saw one of his arms go out to his left and realized he was on a uni and was keeping his balance. He wasn't moving very fast, but seemed to be enjoying it. Of course, I couldn't hear anything he was saying so I could be wrong.

How would you stop yourself if you get a leg cramp? You don't want to accidently ride it into traffic and endanger the safety of the public.

I'd guess it's pretty easy to bail from a uni. You don't go fast anyway.

Why not just remove the front wheel from your bike and ride a wheelie to work?
