Okay… with the constant interest in levels I poked around at
www.unicycling.org and found a list of a gazzillion mounts.
What are the ten EASIEST mounts, in that order so I can work on them so
that when I’m 80 yrs old maybe I can get to level 10!
It would be great if those 13 or 15 year olds would make a
video of them!
I figure all the other stuff is pretty clear on what you have to

can give me more info on THIS Basil King please email
I’m 3 skills away from levels 5 and 6, and halfway through 7. Mounts
interest me the least, so I personally find the following easy: I can do
side, jump, rolling, reverse, jump to seat in front, and side mount
reverse. That’s 6. Three others that I’m thinking about working on next
are “side mount reverse, leg around”, stepover, and one foot mount(into
idle is easy, into riding forwards, a bit harder). There might be a few
other “easy” ones. I got sick of thinking about mounts, so I went through
the list, figured out what I can do already, and then picked the next in
line so I could remember what to focus on.
If you want to pass all the levels by the time you are 80 (I’m shooting
for maybe 45 :), I wouldn’t worry so much about mounts: the strong
foundation that comes with the attaining skill levels makes mounts rather
easy and secondary. I thought reverse mount was hard, but then after about
5 tries yesterday I got it. It turned out to be a piece of cake. Of course
this isn’t true with all mounts (I’ve never tried suicide mount, and have
little desire to do so, at the moment, but I bet I could learn 3 more of
the “easier” mounts with 2-4 hours of concentrated work.
