I already posted this in my Adventures in Freewheeling thread but figured I’d post it here, too. This is not a very interesting video to watch but is intended as a reference for people learning to ride a freewheel unicycle.
"I previously made a very simple freewheel unicycling tutorial but this one shows the basic techniques and then how they’re applied on a ride. The riding shows four styles:
- The basic style a beginner would use which is pedals up and down. In the video I’m riding switch stance to simulate this.
- Pedals up and down which is a conservative riding style used in situations where maximum control is necessary like around hikers, dogs, cars, and some precipices.
- Pedals level with intermittent braking.
- Coasting pedals level.
Listen for the click of the brake lever and pay attention to pedal position, frame angle, and how much I’m on or off the saddle."
