Riding the crab cycle

I put up a short clip of me riding…
Sorry it was getting dark and its tilted 90 degrees.
(My wife and I are learning how to use the camera :o )


Hopefully I will update it soon.

So far I have also rode it in a figure 8.

The crab cycle is set to ride to the left. Pedaling backwards
and riding to the right still seems difficult for me.
Currently learning how to idle… it seems easier idling with the
right foot down and has a feel of a rola bola.


How do you ride that thing?

Wow! Cheers to you!

I saw you practicing at Grant’s Tomb. I was sure it was impossible to ride. It is great to see your able to ride the Crab unicycle, Congratulations!

Thank you for the video… It’s good to see you again!

Wow. That has to be one of the most difficult unicycles imaginable.

only three letters wtf

I got a better video now…

Same site as before… http://www.tux.org/~bagleyd/crab.html

It took me 3 months to ride it so I did not need a fence… I say I practiced about every other day for about an hour. By comparison the double wheel took me about 3 weeks.

I normally bring it to Grants tomb in NYC… we meet the first Sunday 3rd Saturday (1-5PM http://www.newyorkunicycle.com/ )

The crab cycle was built by Tom Miller. With Tom’s blessing, I plan to put all his drawings and photos of how it was built at the same site as the video. By the way, I recently put some new color pictures at Tom’s site http://www.tux.org/~bagleyd/unicycle_factory


haha thats great i want to ride it, maybe quite hard to see where ur going though

Do you have a direct link to the video? I can’t seem to find it…

Never mind, I got it somehow.

Looks dangerous!

yeah i cant find the video… it lopks disgusting though


Even after I watched the movie, I don’t believe it is possible. Is it possible to freemount? Can you ride it to the right also?
Oh, the link is http://www.tux.org/~bagleyd/images/crab.mov
