Unispins

Hello,

Does anyone have any hints for doing unispins? I’ve tried searching the
forum but unfortunately someone is using “unispin” as their username
which is muddying the waters somewhat. :slight_smile:

Ta,
Nick

I suggest watching my Unispin videos here: http://gallery.unicyclist.com/albuo09 that failing, others will help.

How long did it take you to learn that? And what size wheel is that? Can you do it with a larger wheel?

it’s a 20". I can do 180’s on a 24x3, but nothing more. and it took awhile… it’s all down to how much you practice, and having shin protection. well, that’s what helped me learn, mostly.

In univirce Dan has his seat up realy high, does this help???

Hi,

A good way to start learning “unispins” is to jump from the ground, spin the uni and try to land on it. This gives you some time to spin the uni before you jump and get the feel for the landing down.

I actually ride with my seat a lot lower than most freestyle riders and way lower now than in UNiVERsE. I would say it’s just personal preferance, but I could see a super low seat making it a bit harder.

Thanks, that’s the kind of advice I’m looking for.

Oh dear… I had totally the wrong idea of what a unispin was. Good job
I am not good enough yet or I would have learned the wrong trick.

So what is a spin called, where you remain on the seat, and spin with the
unicycle on the spot, before continuing to ride?
