world record....

Does anyone know if there is a world record for the amount of weight carried on
a unicyle… and if there is indeed such a record then how much weight is it… my
second love (you all know my first) is power- lifting sooooo I was just
thinking… later

very stable and

I remember a picture in the USA Newsletter from the mid-70’s of a guy on a
unicycle holding a barbell over his head. I think it was a guy from the Paul Fox
Unicycle Club in Marion, Ohio. Don’t know how much weight it was.

There is also a picture of a unicycle with four people on it, though two of them
were small kids.

If you want my opinion, it’s not how much weight you hold, but how far (and over
how many bumps) you ride with it!

Go out there and do something amazing, take pictures, and tell us all about it!

John, Thankyou very much for your reply… I’m pretty sure I saw the picture you
are reffering to at the JIS picture gallery… The next time our juggling group
meets at our campus’s recreational facility… I’ll see if I can arrange
something… I think I could carry 2*140 pound dumbells without too much
difficulty… and then I could work at carrying a brave soul on my shoulders at
the same time… anyways… once I try it I’ll let you know how it goes… later
