    27.5 minus one wheel

    First time back at Sullivan Canyon since blowing out my hip.

    How much would it help you to have a freewheel toggle?

    It would actually be much more difficult to control and stay balanced since you maintain balance on a unicycle via pedal pressure. So if all of a sudden there's no more pressure available on the pedals forward or backward, you basically have no contact with the unicycle wheel as it rotates. The balance point becomes almost non-existent since there's no second Wheel & Frame in between to stabilize your balance. I have tried a few times to remove both feet from the pedals to try to coast, but I've never gotten more than a couple of revolutions without being thrown off.
