I saw the record for solving while riding a unicycle, so I bought one. it's been 4 days since I got it and I can ride for about 20 seconds. can't idle yet but I'm learning very fast.

I love unicycling.

I have been riding hardcore for about a year and a half now, and just bought a brand new offroad/trials unicycle from unicycle.com. I love going on distance rides, riding on dirt trails, riding down stairs, anything. I have yet to solve a cube on one though....

What kind of unicycle did you buy?

I found a torker at a bike shop. I got a smaller wheal because it's easyer for learning. I got it for 100$. I like it a lot. do you do tricks?

Yeah, I do some tricks. All kinds of jump mounts, uni-spins, wheel walking, riding backwards, 90 degree spin to jumping on the wheel, riding on stomach, one footed riding, etc. I can't glide yet though....

Torkers are great for learning. Is it a 20 inch wheel?

I tried a real unicycle once and couldn't get up.

I used to play Uniracers on the snes back in the day though.

it isn't that hard after a few days but I usualy learn things pretty fast.

i learned to ride a unicycle about 6 or 7 years ago. now i ride in a parade each year for the 4th of July parade. i cant idle though. i only can ride . it was something that i learned to pass the time while hardcore BMXing, as for solving while unicycling, the only thing i can do is one handed solves and it takes me about 2 minutes to finish.
