Unicycle Capitalism

Seems like you’d need to get at least $500

His arm is going to get seriously fatigued carrying that sign.

I’d probably go for the sandwich board myself.

Sandwich board doesn’t work well on a unicycle. Especially if there’s any wind!

I look forward to seeing this auctin immortalized on The Tonight Show’s “Will it Sell” segments. My guess is zero bids.

“32 HOURS OF PROFESSIONAL UNICYCLE ADVERTISING!” But somebody might think it’s perfect for their message. Something that goes with a guy on a unicycle.

You know, there aren’t that many professional unicycle advertisers out there. I hardly ever see one!

Gregg Vivolo also sells a little “Learning to Unicycle” book that I have a copy of. He’s a good example of the many people out in the unicycling world that don’t seem interested in getting involved with the conventions, big clubs, or Internet communities. I’ve exchanged a few emails with him. I wish him luck! The advertising places he listed swarm with people during the summer months, and it might actually work. If it does, there could be work for other starving unicyclists out there!

Haha that is very funny.

I wonder if anyone will give him lots of money for it.

Depends which direction you want to go, and how good your gliding skills are.

Unicycle Advertising

Hey John,
Gregg Vivolo here! A funny thing happened tonight… I googled my name and stumbled accross your thread about my eBay advertisment for 32 HOURS OF PROFESSIONAL UNICYCLE ADVERTISING. The idea was spawned when I saw all the press about the gal who ran the auction to advertise on her body. Her auction yielded about $13,000 but I hear she’s having trouble receiving payment.

I figured if there are people stupid enough to pay that sum of money to advertise on a womans body then there must be people out there that would be smart enough to pay at lease $500 to advertise using a unicyclist. Well, as you can see from the fact there are only 3 days left and zero bids, I guess I was wrong.

I’m encouraged that there have been close to 300 hits to my auction and there are a number of people who have added me to their “watch” list (all of which I believe are among the unicycling community).

You stated in your thread “He’s a good example of the many people out in the unicycling world that don’t seem interested in getting involved with the conventions, big clubs, or Internet communities.” I was wondering if you can digress on this. I’m very interested in participating in these and was wondering if you can share some info with me on these. If you no longer have my email address it’s unipsychler@ridetheunicycle.com.

Thanks,
UniPsychler

why would anyone want to advertise with a unicycler when they could advertise with this guy
