Just thought I would take this opportunity, sandwiched as it is between
drinking, eating, uni’ing in an unsafe drunken manner playing party games
and drinking some more, To wish all and everyone a merry CrissMiss (My
personal secular version of the usual title)
I also thought it would be nice to see a list of peoples uni related
pressies so we can all gloat and get jealous in equal measure.
For my part I was delighted to receive a copy of ‘One Tired Guy’ Which was
highly enjoyable to watch. Though very disappointing at 23 minutes. Kinda
feel a bit cheated to be honest, £20 is over the odds for any video these
days I understand the extra costs involved in producing low run media, but
23 minutes is still VERY short! That said, I did love all 23 of them, jut
would have liked more.
One of the kids on my street got a 20’ DM ringmaster. He is ten and tiny,
but for a kid that has been riding for 4 months he is very very good.
Hopping and one footed stuff is nothing to him. I got him into uni’ing
when I got my first at around the same time. His dad got him a 16’ learner
model and wanted to get him an upgrade. He couldn’t have been happier.
So, I hope everyone is having a great day, and playing with many new
toys. Tell us all about them here!
I got a completely inappropriate child’s unicycle. I couldn’t do without the blue even though John Drummond tried to talk me out of it. I think this baby can handle hops of 20-30mm with someone my size on it.

It should be a lot easier than a unicycle…
I saw that product in the store and have been curious how it will hold up
under adult use. Pogo sticks are items that get beat on by their very
use, so they have to be really well built to last any length of time with
people over 100 pounds on them. I’m way over 100. It might be fun to play
on one that will actually hold adults without breaking or wearing out

It’s really solidly built and - according to the manual- suitable for up
to 100kg/220lb. You adjust the air pressure in the cylinder to suit the
weight of the rider (it has a clever built-in pump).
I wanted a Miyata seat for Xmas, but my wife couldn’t get one in time. Instead she got me a great video ‘One wheel-No limit’. I can therefore sit and watch Miyata saddles being used for 60 minutes instead…
You’re probably thinking of powerskips. http://entertainfla.com has info
on these. Wild-looking contraptions, they are.

That’s the one I got for Christmas from my wife. But i sure ain’t going 6
feet on it yet. (And today she gave me a Candy Floss maker for my birthday
my parents don’t agree with me buying unicycles or them buying them for me, oh well, one month and then i came stop listening to them, well legally. the trouble with unicycles is that you can’t really phase a 5ft giraffe into the family room so that it appears to have “always been there” damn these weird machines.
