Eek, sounds like riding one foot bacawards on a giraffe. Doable, but lots
of chances of your feet just coming off the pedals…

I have the pictures, but it’s way down on my life’s priorities list with
the other aspects of updating my Web site. Other stuff like being a
husband and uncle, being president of USA and IUF, and a little actual
riding always seem to get in the way!

To me, the most difficult unicycle type is still the B.C. Wheel. Jack
Halpern’s 1.5 wheeler (known in 1982 as the “150”) was actually not a big
step above riding a regular two wheeler. All you needed was a little
momentum to push you past the “dead spot” in the pedal stroke, and a brief
pause on the “control” side. I picked it up in only a few minutes, even
though I was never an expert two wheeler rider.
