Tricks on impossible wheel?

Just wondering if any1 has any suggestions for tricks on a
impossible wheel?

As if just riding the thing isn’t enough! :wink:

I’d be interested to see you perform a 360 spin.

Hi,

I’ve never really tried one of these, and don’t own one, but I believe if you e-mail Geoge Peck (A pioneer of MUni, in case you don’t know), he might have suggestions as far as off road riding. I imagine that if you wore dirt jumping/dirt bike gloves, you could do hops and stuff that’s trials related. I imagine you could take a few fingers off if not careful too!

Hi again,

Wow, am I lame or what? I forgot the difference between and Ultimate Wheel, and an Impossible. Let me clear this up: I believe George has taken his Ultimate Wheel off road. You could probably do the same with an Impossible Wheel too, but it wouldn’t be easy, obviously.

Sorry for the mix up,
Evan

They’re all impossible.

:slight_smile:

But backspins and frontspins should keep you busy for a while.

Cartwheels?

Im confused on the cart wheel replie?
Hehe i know its possible to do handstands on the impossible wheel and on a ultimate wheel but theres chance to scrape your head on the tyre.

Click ons?
Ultimate wheel click ons?

ultimate wheels are a lot differnt in that u have a lot less control.
its more a less coasting in ways.

I think there may be some confusion here over which is which. I partially
fault myself as my ancient Garage Page (http://www.unicycling.com/garage/)
doesn’t feature impossible/B.C. wheels (yet).

  • An ultimate wheel has two pedals, and doesn’t coast.

  • A B.C. or impossible wheel has two pegs, and only coasts.

Previous mention of click-ons or other forms of attaching feet to pedals
were meant to apply to ultimate wheels. I wouldn’t even consider it such a
bad idea, as an ultimate wheel is generally going pretty slow so it might
be a little less dangerous to fall with your feet clipped in.

360 spins

i can almost do em

are uni spins done, off or on the uni? i can do about a 270 by just jumping and spinning round, but i saw a pic of a guy how was in the air spinnign the uni under him?

They are done without touching the ground. Meaning that one jumps up off the uni, holding the seat with one hand (usually) and the unicycle spins underneath them until they land back onto the uni.
