An http://www.google.com/ search for “tandem unicycle” comes up with 26
unique out of 264 total hits. Tell google to display all 264 hits,
otherwise you will miss a lot of good URLs. I will list the URLs that
provide useful information rather than simple mentions of the phrase
etc., in the order that google provided them:

The second last paragraph in Beirne Konarski’s post mentions a tandem:

“I ended up spending more time talking to people and sharing hints rather than
watching events. Ken Fuchs brought a nice selection of unicycles, including
a tandem unicycle and a BC wheel. Sem Abrahams rode the tandem through the
gym with Ken, and with a variety other backseat riders. It was fun to watch,
and they were getting pretty good at it, but it had the look of a Keystone
Cops routine.”

A google search of “two seater unicycle” provides:

" Apart from inventing a rocket-powered Frisbee and juggling eggs while
riding his unicycle through academic buildings, Shannon was famous for
his interest in automata and toys, with a collection that included seven
chess machines, mechanical rats, a petrol-powered pogo-stick, a
two-seater unicycle, a WC Fields automaton, a machine to solve the Rubik
cube and a Roman numeral-based calculator."

Does any know what kind of tandem unicycle Dr. Shannon had? Front-back
is the type usually implied and the subject of this post, but there are
also side by side and the top-bottom “tandem”.

I will post more tandem unicycle info shortly.

Here’s the design of the tandem unicycle that Tom Miller and I built
together in the Summer of 1990:

There is a rec.sport.unicycling post on 1 Sep 1997 by Lars Burgstahler
which mentions the following ride:

Klaus and Roland Bartl, from Munich rode on a tandem unicycle, 70 km
along the Danube river from Passau, Germany to Linz, Austria.

Lars also mentioned that he (Lars) and Klaus rode together for 25 m.
Lars also says that Claus can free-mount the tandem with either his
brother or his girlfriend.

Several Twin Cities unicyclists rode my tandem in the early 1990’s with
and without me riding. Thus, there were several pairs of riders who
could ride the tandem.

The Redford Township Unicycle club had a tandem unicycle built by Mark
Brichford many years ago. It isn’t known whether that cycle was ever
successfully ridden, but Mark built another tandem a few years ago which
club members have ridden.

Double Magazine (a magazine for tandem bicycle riders) was going to
write an article about tandem unicycles a little over a year ago, but
I’ve heard nothing about it.

Ken Fuchs <kfuchs@winternet.com>

Sorry, I never use the forums, except when tracking down problems like

Thank you John!

Re: Re: Tandem unicycle (Two seat unicycle)

If I remember correctly, the original tandem Mark built was too flexy. I think the flex problem kept people from learning the skills to ride that one. I remember seeing it on the wall in the garage the first time I was in there; 1980.

Re: Re: Tandem unicycle (Two seat unicycle)

The forum has some special markup codes that are similar to HTML codes for formatting messages. One of them is the CODE tag for inserting formatted text like source code and ASCII art.

Unfortunately the messages imported from the newsgroup seem to loose all leading white space so ASCII art doesn’t survive the process of being imported into the forum. I copied the ASCII art from the newsgroup and pasted it inside the CODE tags in a forum message and now the forum users can see the ASCII art in all its glory.

A workaround is to start each line of ASCII art with a non-space
character. Then the leading spaces are not leading anymore. Example,

Hmmm, I think you must set a fixed font manually. BTW, the ASCII art
is generated using ASCGEN.

Oops, doesn’t work at all. All strings of multiple spaces are collapsed to a single space. So the solution must be to avoid spaces alltogether, and e.g. replace them with a dot.

I’ll try again from the newsgroup.

Now is this better? It still needs to be viewed in Fixed Font. Sorry
but I can’t do this in the test forum because I need newsgroup access.

Re: Re: Tandem unicycle (Two seat unicycle)

Yes, that’s it. So, when posting ASCII art from the newsgroup, the key thing is to type CODE in square brackets before the ASCII art section, and /CODE in square brackets following it.

The picture is a bit dumb but for this test I (initially) needed something with a white background and this was the first I found. (It is my photo on the music group website.)

AND NOW TO STOP THIS OFF-TOPIC STUFF!!

Thank you, Klass!

Now we all know how to send ASCII art from the newsgroup or mailing list
so it displays fine on the forums.
