Reminds me of the guy who unicycles at Alafia.  He kept up with us on North Creek for the first half one day...

I'd try that, it would be pretty easy to get into doing. a decent Unicycle is about 100 bucks, throw on some new rims and a DH tire and your good.

you're just jealous b/c his bike probably weighs less than yours! ;)

Also, I've run into unicyclers out on the trail up at San Felasco in Gainesville as well.  I must admit I'm pretty impressed by anyone who can do this.

LMAO.....  That is good Niki.  Thumper's bike is as close as you get in weight to that of a unicycle.  But I am sure he will now be looking at shaving more grams to get down to the same weight....    ;D ;D ;D

It looks pretty tough to be honest with you...

It would be so much cooler if not for the continual Micheal Jackson crotch-grab impersonations.


Yes, I know the brake is under the seat...
