handlebars??

hi everyone,
have been looking for aaages for a set of handlebars on a separate wheel so that it gives the impression of riding a bike.

any ideas where to get hold of one? anyone else know the product i mean?

ive read a few books that say to cut the front end of a bike off, but there must be a supplier??
just imagine how rubbish that would look!.... im not a D.I.Y man!!

Cheers

Daz

Go to your local thrift store, by a $25 bike.
Remove stem from fork.
Remove fork from frame.
Reinstall stem in fork.

Ride.

God, you are wierd. The whole point of a unicycle is that you can eat while you ride. Savour the flavour!
