Back to the Uni vid...
Thanks a lot Dick...just reminded me that I gotta spend some time on MINE.
I rode a Uni all through College at SFA and Texas A&M. I rode over 2 miles each way to my classes at A&M. I got very good for a while. I did stairs (up and down), drops, freewheeling, one footing, backwards, spins, etc. Back then MUNIs (mountain unicycles) did not exist or I'd been big into that!!!
You guys are impressed...but unless you've done it yourself...you can't be impressed enough with the stuff that guy does. It's hard going downhill that steep when you can't coast and don't have brakes. It's all leg muscle! His ability to keep his line (bridge rails) is unbelievable. Somebody tell Grif that there is a handle on the front of the seat (really) and it's that which he grabs. It's like riding a bull!
I quit riding for 10 years...and just put a new tire on mine and started trying to regain my form a few months back. I can still ride...but I lost my skills and style.
