You can do a “circle” of diameter 0 on 20" as well as on 26". When performing a
pirouette, you start with a spin, becoming smaller and smaller until you turn on
one single point. You may argue, a pirouette is not riding in a circle. That’s
true, but while going into that pirouette, you will be riding in arbitrarily
small circles.

                              Best wishes,
                                Wolfgang

20" - about a 50 cm turning circle on an average day. 26" - I dont own one, yet.

That’s what I talked about. I can show you (and many others can do as well)
riding in a 1 inch circle for several minutes if you want to.

                             Best regards,
                                Wolfgang

Sorry, but I can’t, as I don’t have the technical facilities to produce MPEGs or
anything like that. But I’m sure there are lot’s of people at any unicycling
convention that are happy to do it for you.

                             Best regards,
                                Wolfgang

Re: turning circles

Yes it is possible to do a very small circle like 1 inch diameter for a few
number of revolutions

But I want to know the smallest circle that can be ride for a long time (10
revolutions or more )

Thank you

I’d love to see that, Wolfgang. Is there any chance you could put video of it on
your web page?
