RE recumbent unicycle

Someone at the National Unicycle Convention parade through Snoqualmie was riding
a sawed off stingray bicycle that had a configuration like your picture. I think
it was John Foss and if I am wrong I am sure he will correct me. The frame was
cut off, or at least the fork was removed, and the pedals were out in front.
John could ride it but it looked a bit awkward to get going. It was an
impressive stunt.

That was Guy Hansen, the guy from Utah who also rides with his hands. He brought
a truckload of kooky cycles he’d built, of which that one was probably the
easiest to make. I think all that’s necessary to duplicate it is to lock up the
rear wheel (no freewheel), remove the whole front wheel, handlebar and headset,
and maybe put a smaller front chainwheel. Fun and comfortable! Still kind of
hard to steer though.
