unicycle with same pedal-stand


I have a question about something I saw on a picture of the EJC.

There was a man with a special unicycle: the pedals were “on the same high” (my English isn’t that, sorry for the bad translation).

I made this unicycle myself --> here are some pics:

I have some questions:
-Does it have a name, this special unicycle?
-Are there many people who have this kind of unicycles?

As it has been already posted it is a kangaroo. Here is one you can buy made like that.http://www.unicycle.com/Shopping/shopexd.asp?id=613

In deed kangaroo ride (don’t mess it with kangaroo ww).
It works better with an excentric wheel. But it’s off-set needs to be in the right direction! I had one, but sorry no pics or vidz available of it.

Here is a Kangaroo with an eccentric wheel from unicycle.uk.com.

Thank you all!
