Coastacycle.

I know that there are at least a few of these freewheeling cycles that you
are talking about. I have ridden one kind of. To really learn it you need
at least a couple of hours (assuming you can coast. Otherwise i don’t have
a clue how long it would take.) It’s slightly hard to get on because you
cant rely on the unicycles non-freewheeling characteristics when mounting
but once you’re up riding a few revolutions ain’t that hard. It’s after
those few revolutions that yu need to either pedal way trucking fast or
coast. That’s when it gets hard to stay up. Anyway, a brake might make
balance easier but the point is that it is possible to ride it w/o one. I
think something very impressive would be to get riding one of these
coastacycle (that’s the name i dubbed them cause i can’t remember what
they’re called) then start coasting and eventually pedal backwards while
riding forward. That’de be cool huh huh. I’ve just thought that for a long
time but never really told anyone about it and since we were on the
subject… well…

 Whatever n stuff, goodnight everybody! Karl.

I’ve always wanted to hook up strobe lights timed to my ground speed which
would make me look like I was always going backwards… Uhh, unless I was going
backwards that is. Then it would look like I was going forwards. Yea, that’s
the ticket.

Not as cool as Moon walking the wheel… :slight_smile:
