    New toy

    As if my shins and elbows haven't had enough. I ride during the winter, but sometimes the cold just keeps me from the trail--so I decided a new challenge was in order to curb my boredom. Just rec'd the unicycle from UPS, should keep me busy this winter and surely will keep my shins and elbows from healing completely. Anyone else feel the lure of the one wheeler?

    Felt the lure before. A few guys out east ride them regulary on the same trails we mountain bike on...was surprized to see how much technical riding these guys could do along with the steep climbs they could make.....may look at one soon...course a mountain board appeals too.

    I bought one a couple years ago. I can ride it but only in a straight line...still cannot make it turn. My 6th grade daughter rides it to school with a too heavy messenger pack hanging by her side.....

    I've seen film of people riding them off road. Amazing what they can do. Perhaps the most stunning thing I saw was this July. Two people used them in the Mt. Evans Hill climb. 28 miles from Id Spgs to the top of Evans AND back down.

    I accidently left mine in the garage of my previous rental home. Was a family heir loom, must have been 60 years old, and it probably ended up in a thrift shop. I still want a replacement, but the funds aren't available, yet. I was finally getting to a comfortable state on that thing, I could usually tell it to turn and it would, sometimes it wouldn't though.
