On that site? Which picture(s)?

There’s something endearing about the way the whole monocycle concept just refuses to totally die, despite its obvious impracticality.

The magazine cover with the “Gyro-Electric Destroyer” on it says, “SEE PAGE 666.” Heh heh! I don’t know who I pity more - the Germans in the trench, or the poor guys trying to fight from those pillboxes dangling from the GED’s axle pegs. “Gyro-Electric Destroyer” would make a great name for a band.

That “First Monowheel?” in the first picture there is a thing of beauty. It looks like a Victorian-era time-machine. It’s actually very close to being a unicycle; just get rid of the huge outer wheel and you’ve got an odd but rideable thirty-two-or-so-inch uni. I’m not sure which vehicle would be less painful to ride, though. It probably never occurred to the inventor to try that.

not having much fun but whatever.

It was in a local newspaper. I don’t have a copy of the pic.
