YOU MIGHT BE A UNI FREAK IF:

The first thing you ask when you regain consciousness is “How’s my unicycle?”

There are more pedals than wheels in your garage.

Your big goal for the summer is to learn how to coast.

You can recite the 10 skill levels by heart.

Your family immediately yells out your name when a unicycle appears on TV.

You lean into the turn, then realize you’re in a car.

Someone exclaims “look at the giraffe” and you think “unicycle”.

Someone says “USA”, “IOU”, or “UFO”, and you think “unicycle”.

Someone says “muni”, and you think “unicycle”.

The walls in your house are all gouged up from floor to knee level.

You scope out parks, sidewalks, trails, and parking lots for interesting
places to ride.

You fantasize about riding in unusual places, like the aisle of a 747 or the
“pool of balls” at the city kiddy land.

You think things like, “what if Coker made a Big Wheel Giraffe?” or, “I wonder
if I could make an ultimate wheel out of a Spinergy rim?”

EVERYONE in the neighborhood knows who you are.

Every now and then you have to pump up your seat.

Your legs are rarely blemish-free.

You can’t even remember where your bicycle is anymore.

You find yourself rocking back and forth on your heels when you are
waiting in line.

You enjoy putting on your socks and shoes while balancing on one leg.

Your friends see you walking and ask “where’s your unicycle?”

You hear about someone riding across a railroad trestle, and think, “that’s
an idea!”.

Your unicycles have names.

You actually become an amateur metallurgist as a result of researching potential
axle materials.

You watch the same IUF skill levels video 6 times and are still not
bored with it.

You feel obligated to learn how to juggle.

You find yourself holding onto the front of your car seat with your right hand
as you drive.

The cost of your unicycle collection makes you finally start thinking about
buying household insurance.

You get hooked on “The Big Comfy Couch” because of Major Bedhead.

Your kid brings you and your unicycle to “Show & Tell”.

You know EXACTLY how to fit six unicycles into the trunk of your car.

You plan to be riding a unicycle at the turn of the millennium.

Another one: You feel strange at walking!

But honestly, it’s amazing how many things in Rick’s list fit to me.

You don’t have to be a freak for that. Just show up once with a uni in your road
and it will happen to you.

I agree with Wolfgang. Many of these things are very familiar to me. But one
question: If I get one point for each “fits me”, how many do I need to call
myself a uni freak?

Hum, an uncomforyable 20 of those points covered me, and thats just because I
don’t have any interest in IUF skill levels, or a kid. Our shed currently has 9
wheels and 16 pedels in it, 2 pedels are not attached to cycles as is one of the
8 saddles.by sunday there will be an extra wheel, 2 more pedals and another
saddle…because…

Cokers have arrived at north hants trye co at last.Signalling an end to the long
wait some of us brits have had to endure for the ship to arrive from the states
with a crate of cokers in the hold. sarah

well I seem to have become more of a uni freak by one point today, making a
total of 21. I now have an air saddle on one uni and am doing some work on a n
old saddle towards a second, (repiring the saddle cover, looking out some
karrimat foam, claening off the old sticky tape.)

A good afternoon pottering in the shed,I put a new trye on thr Muni too, lovey
new x-country tyre for the BMW, .

I’ll stop whittering now, miark has just phoned.
