One of the strange phenomenon of going to conventions is that our total number of unicycles seems to increase by convention’s end. Our club now has a new 6’ giraffe from Unicycle.com to add to our show presentation potential.
Great mount. I wish I’d bought that 5 footer I saw in that junk shop years ago. By the way, who’s is the canoe on the car? That’s another of my hobbies that I’m suffering withdrawal symptoms about at the moment. The weather was excellent over here (Scotland) this weekend and all my toys (canoe & unicycle etc.) are stuck in a shipping container
The canoe is actually ours but some friends were borrowing it for a skit at church. It’s a fiberglass canoe that I had repaired but the last time some high schoolers borrowed it, they hit something under the water and now it leaks again. Fiberglass is easy to repair but I’m thinking of getting rid of it and trying to find a more modern material canoe.
Let me let you in on one little secret, though. Ben can get up high enough on the 5 footer so the tire doesn’t slide or skip away from him but he was having the tire sliding problem on the 6 footer. So, if you notice, he mounted on the slight uphill slope at the bottom of our driveway. It worked fine and was just enough to keep the tire from slipping along the pavement.
