My custom frame is made so that the seat post doesn’t slide through to the tyre. This has it’s disadvantages but it does make for some really fun loose-seat unicycling. I think you should all try this if you have the chance because it’s great!
It must look really funny when you ride around like this. Today I was turning corners with the seatpost loose and I was turning my body and then letting my legs and the unicycle follow later on.
It’s lot’s of fun!
On a different topic, has anyone ever seen some sort of a tandem unicycle that has a different seat and set of cranks and pedals for each rider? This’d be heaps of fun, although probably very hard to coordinate with turning and general riding.
I should probably try loose seat uni’ing based on the fact that i am a freak about having a straight seat. If i notice at all during a ride that my seat is crooked i quickly pull over and fix it and contiue riding merrily.
Oh i havent seen a tandem uni like tht but it is a good idea. id gladly test try one.
