Here are some awesome ideas for New unicycles. We’re all familiar with Cokers, Giraffes, Ultimate wheels, Impossible wheels, kangaroos, eccentric wheels, recumbent unicycles, and even multi wheels. So I’ll do my part to further the sport and pitch these new types that I hope may one day be manufactured, sold, bought, and ridden.
The Extremely Impossible wheel: This Unicycle is just a tire, rim, spokes, and hub, ridden by running backwards while balancing on top of the wheel.
The Pepsier: this unicycle is similar to a Coker, but better tasting.
The Stair Master: Similar to a normal unicycle, except the wheel is built with a 90 degree angle cut out of it, allowing for perpendicular, rather than parallel, stair climbing. This also is good for hanging on to ledges easier.
The Profile: a profile hub with a profile wheel, frame, saddle, etc. What this unicycle is is what you’d get if you gut a unicycle in half (profile… get it?) The best part is that you can make two of them from one normal unicycle. Better work on you one foot extended riding! He he he he!
The Bombproof: the profile hub got me thinking, “What’s the point of having a bombproof hub if the rest of the unicycle isn’t?” The frame on this unicycle will be around two inches thick, solid. The Wheel will be one medal disk three inches think. Of course the saddle will also be solid metal. It’s expected to weigh about 60 pounds and cost around five thousand dollars.
The Seuss-Cycle: this unicycle has a chain driven wheel, much like a giraffe. The rider is seated completely off center of the wheel, usually somewhere around thirty feet off of the ground. The frame branches off in awkward curves which also hold platforms that hold thinks like fishbowls, plates of toast, elephants, and miniature acrobats used to counter balance the weight of the rider. An option would be for the rider to wear a helmet with a small wheel connected to it, so incase the cycle tips over the rider can continue moving while balancing on his head. It is usually customary to do some sort of cumbersome activity, such as eating breakfast or building a ship in a bottle, while on this unicycle.
The “Bi”-Cycle: The frame of this unicycle branches out to hold another piece of equipment that has handlebars and another fork coming down to another wheel. This piece can swivel in the frame allowing the rider to steer using this extra wheel with his hands. It is also believed that this may be easier to balance on since the third dimension is taken out.
Feel Free to submit you own ideas! Hooray!
