On one wheel

How do I get a subscription to on one wheel?

P.S. last call for info on Emory Unicycles. They seem to be of the
higest quality.

Re: On one wheel

Text item:

Most magazines come out months in advance. It’s sometimes strange to be standing
there sweating in the hot sun (even in Michigan or Minnesota) while reading your
December issue of Bicycling or whatever.

Just to be different, the folks at ON ONE WHEEL have traditionally either come
out during the time specified on the issues, or after. I took this tradition
to its furthest extreme when I was editor of the IUF stand-alone newsletter
(that’s why I don’t do it any more).

Our editor Constance Cotter does a lot of other unicylcing activities besides
producing the newsletter, which is a major job in itself. She recently had some
medical problems that probably slowed down the production, but we will probably
be getting our next issue soon.

Did anyone receive the Fall or Winter issue of On one wheel?

I haven’t. The July 1997, Vol. 23, Number 2 is the last one I have.

Please, let me know. Thanks.

Re: On One Wheel

um, fellow one-wheel nutters… Some years ago, at a Melbourne University
Orientation Week Market Day, the Mountaineering club put on a display of
abseiling (repelling?) off an adjacent building. They included novelty items,
such as a Kyak paddling down the wall and a unicyclist riding down.

Apparently it looked amazing. (I was not there).

When I got the chance, much later, I had a go at doing this and found it
impossible. If anyone out there has tried this, or has ideas on how it might be
done please feel free to discuss.

I have tried, riding forwards, backwards and sideways down the wall, but in
every case the weight of the uni simple made it imposible to maintain balence.

While I don’t, at this stage, have an obliging boy-scout troup with an abseiling
tower to practise on, it is something I would like to do!

A picture of the event appears on the Been There, Done That Page which is part
of the Unicycling Home Page
(http://www.unicycling.org/unicycling/btdt/btdt.html)

The unicyclist was Lee Naish (a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science). His
details are available on his home page (http://www.cs.mu.oz.au/~lee/index.html).

He may be able to provide more hints.

RE: on one wheel

Until Australia has its own unicycling publication, ON ONE WHEEL, though
American-centric, will provide you with something you can show people when
you’re out riding or at a get-together, it has high resolution pictures, and it
has stories that do not appear here.

There’s something about seeing stuff in print that makes it more legitimate. I
think the most powerful reason to have it is to be able to show it to the
newbies, and to justify yourself to the “scoffers”, if you care what they think.

While I don’t want to offend anyone involved in the Uni society of america, this
message is particularly directed to unicyclists not living in the US who receive
On One Wheel. I was just wondering if the magazine is worth the effort and money
of subscribing . . . especially given that i live in australia and have access
to this newsgroup and the internet.

Is there anythign that On One Wheel provides a person with no access to the NUC
that they can’t get from the internet??

Thanks Nic unicycle@tartarus.uwa.edu.au

RE: on one wheel

In addition to coverage of future and current events, you get in-depth articles
you won’t see on the web… Recent issues include articles on: Jan Layne - Who
has been a unicycling leader for 25 years Tyler Bechtold - who rode across the
US, this a must read story The European Youth Circus A report on Japanese
unicycling from 2 Americans who visited A moving story on teaching unicycling to
orphans in Kenya And of course there are lots of great photos mostly taken by
John Foss, Andy Cotter and me, although many articles are accompanied by photos
from others. The USA web page contains a TOC of each issue:
http://www.unicycling.org/usa/oow.html

It’s is as close to a real unicycling magazine as we can get. If we get

our subscription rate up higher, it should get even better. (I am dreaming of a
color OOW.)
