I’m a student designer at SJSU and I am designing a concept unicycle of some sort for my senior project. I need to understand how people learn to unicycle and would like to hear some of your learning methods and about any learning-aids. Also, I would be interested in helping someone learn to ride so that I can interview them and better understand the stumbling-blocks/fears/challenges/stigmas/etc. that come with learning to ride a unicycle.
My unicycle design (or accompanying accessories) will need to enable a person to learn to ride more easily.
(This will be a concept design and not actually built but will be designed to be ABLE to be built.)
I’m very interested in hearing from you ALL…
* Stories of learning to ride * training tips * difficulties of learning to ride * accessories that have helped you learn * accessories that could have helped * are there any balancing issues that people have or haven't overcome? * I could give a lesson or two in exchange for the knowledge learned from Questions I'll ask. (I only have my own muni which fits a 6foot tall man- so you'd probably need your own cycle)
Thanx so much!
The campus unicyclist.
