    Yup, they are called "munis" aka "mountain unicycles"
    I had a Surly Conundrum for 3 years. Just sold it. Was fun but I tended to do stupid things on it and hurt myself. I am just one of those people that should not have dangerous(aka awesome!) things.
    So I sold it and my pugs to get my Carbon Beargrease.

    Old news, fat muni, heavy and slow, though fun.

    Riding muni takes work, but anyone can learn given enough time.

    The last time I posted about munis I got a neg rep and was called "gay".

    Go figure...

    Muni's rule. I have a 24" Torker. Most fun, frustrating, fun, difficult, fun I have had. The learning curve is steep, but short.
    I am currently looking for a Surly Conundrum....

    Muni is the absolute purest form of riding.

    I did it for five years straight, didn't even ride a bike around the block, was able to progress to the point that I could ride DH, XC for twenty miles at a stretch, even did some overnight rides.

    I'm back on bikes now, but still muni regularly. I have a 36er, 32" custom, 29er, and my daily rider: 650b Nimbus with a Hans Dampf Gravity

    I'm building a 24 x 4" fatty this summer, just waiting on the Specialized Ground Control to be available.

    Some things are more fun on a muni, like Moab
