    Well, the good thing is that with downgearing of a factor of 27, the typical riding speed would be 0.5 to 1 mph. So it's not that dangerous.
    Unfortunately whenever a body is unsupported, as happens when a unicycle fails to progress as expected, gravity still accelerates it downwards regardless of the forward speed of the unicycle.

      True but with hardly any forward speed involved, the process is basically the same as dismounting. Usually safe and controlled.
