Too cold outside to uni? Inclement weather putting a damper on your unicycling?
Is work or school eating up all your winter daylight hours?
Is posting to/keeping current with RSU taking too much of a chunk out of your riding time?
Help is here!
No more catcalls from the idiot-on-the-street!
No more gouged floors, smashed lamps, broken dishes, TVs, or pets from UPDs in the livingroom!
Heck! No more UPDs at all!
Hmmm. And I suppose the unicyclist who already has everything might not already have one, because it’s not a unicycle. But if an exercise bike were to be made from a unicycle, I guess that’s what you would end up with.
So why would you not want a handlebar on an exercise cycle?
Hey, that looks like a good idea. I wonder if you can put your own saddle on that. I’d want an airseat if I’m going to spend a lot of exercise time on it. What size is the seat post? I’d want to get pedals with pins - don’t want to slip while exercising. What type of cranks does it have - if your going to work out your legs even more you’d want strong cranks so you can stand up on it. Which makes me wonder what sort of axle system it has - maybe it can be modified for profiles…
I once took a telephone call while spinning with my road bike on the stationary trainer, I continued to spin while sitting upright for about 20+ minutes while talking. When I was done I was numb from my navel to my knees, some seats were just not meant for sitting on upright for extended periods.
I love the part in the discription on the site that says ‘With its compact and space-saving design, it is perfectly fit for modern home in Hong Kong.’
LOL. Do you think it would fit in a modern home in UK? Anyways, it would be quite fun if having races on them (using the computers of course!) . And knowing Simon, he would just want to try and hop on it!
After having read the page describing the device, I understand what it’s for. Hong Kong apartments are notoriously small. Though I’m sure there are some small ones in the UK as well, I don’t think you realize the smallness of a HK apartment in relation to space (and price!). Steve Dressler was sharing what I would call a small apartment, with three bedrooms, with two roommates. Plus he had his office in his, bedroom (which was the smallest), and a closet converted to another bedroom for his office assistant. The second bathroom in there was a combination toilet stall, sink, and shower, all in the space of a phone booth.
This explains wanting the thing to be small. But I’m sorry, it would suck as an exercise bike. You would kill your crotch, and if you tried to pedal fast, the thing would oscillate all over the place. You really need something stable to grip, to relieve your crotch, and to help pedal straight.
But I definitely got a laugh out of “Hey buddy, where’s your wheel?”
