# that three wheeled unicycle related thing

Um, does anyone know the name for this? It’s got 3 wheels, side by side,
with pedals connecting them together. So, there’s a left wheel, with a
pedal which connects to the center, and from the center, a pedal connects
to the right wheel. It’s just wheels, no seat or anything else. Since 3
wheels thouch the ground, it’s easier to ride than a unicycle.

Anyway, I was riding one of these the other day, and was wondering if
anyone else had tried these. Riding normally took a minute to adjust to,
but I figured there must be some tricks that can be done. Has anyone
figured any out?

I could one-foot idle for a few beats, but quickly lost momentum. I was
able to wheel walk, standing with my left foot on the center wheel, and
right foot on the right wheel. This was fun, though, I’d imagine a false
step could spell a broken spine. I suppose wheel walking with one foot,
while the other foot is on a pedal would be the next trick to try.

It sound like you are talking about a three-wheeled version of a
“dicycle”.

I’d like to see this contraption if you were able to get some video of you on it.

Sounds like a “Pedalo”. Have a look at

So that’d be a tricycle, then. One with a very, very short wheelbase.

Since we’re in the new names game these days, may I coin the term
Ultimate Tricycle?
