Take a look at this!

He has six of them and rides one everyday..

I'm impressed. I'm finding riding on two wheels to be a challenge in snow. But one???!

Wait, is this a lawyer joke?

"A lawyer on a unicycle in a snow storm goes into a bar...with a priest and a rabbi..."

Thanks. I had seen the picture, but it's great to get the backstory.

One tire, with studs may be more stable. He's always over his center of gravity, and a single tire with the equivalent weight has twice the force per square inch contacting the ground as a bicycle.

Neat... never thought about riding a uni, but I can see some serious advantages to it.

A unicycle, in the snow, with a briefcase in one hand and an umbrella in the other -- impressive!
