Shortbike

There’s an article in the latest Velovision about a trike that’s hinged
in the middle. The rear section can be unclipped and replaced with
alternative rear sections. Or, it looks to me like you could unclip the
rear section and ride the front as a unicycle.

The website’s here:

The site’s in German, but the Google translation to English is quite
comprehensible:

I haven’t checked the site in depth, but I suspect the Shortbike has a ‘one-way’ transmission, which would make it difficult to ride as a unicycle.

Doh! You’re almost certainly right, of course. I was so excited by the
apparent unicycling possibilities that it didn’t occur to me that it
probably wouldn’t have a fixed wheel.
