  • Suspension uni with disc brakes and handlebars!

    My mate Adam sent me these pictures from Japan. This uni has three internal springs as the spokes to the wheel same design as suggested by Pete66 and discussed on this forum a few months ago. However they've gone even more futuristic by adding disc brakes, handlebars and a rear 'stabilising' wheel! Is this the future of unicycling?

      That's incredible! Do you know if anyone has actually ridden one yet!

          Adam also sent this this. I don't really know what it is. I'ma guessing some kind of excercycle. Any other suggestions?

            Unfortunately I don't have any other information about these unicycles - so its possible they haven't been ridden at all. The babe looks like she's about to hop on...

              Looks like when you pedal it , it turns a fan on the underside and makes the machine hover...

                I was going to suggest a floor polisher/waxer.

                  hahaha!! thats kewl and dumb at the same time! Why does it have handlebars tho, and a training wheel? well it shows you can make a unicycle with suspension with a little tweaking.

                    but it's a bike! nothing but a really funny looking bike!
                    because i don't see how you could get onto the one wheel without using that "stablizing wheel"

                    but that exercise thing is funny.

                      The crappy seat and pedals were a nice touch, a real testament to non-unicyclist designers. Not to mention dual steerer tubes on unnecessary handlebars.

                        that's pretty cool I s'pose, but it's barely a unicycle anymore.... technically it's not, with the training wheel. but even without that it couldn't really be called a standard unicycle....

                        I've seen that before.... somewhere. the internet I b'lieve. it is an exercise bike, but a unicycle version.

                          The dual tubes look like they are for easy adjusting the hight of the bars, they have quick releases. Though very un-needed.

                              The stationary unicycle thing has been mentioned before.

                              and I bought one of these!

                              It's a funny looking exercise machine.
