  • "Where's your other wheel?" Question Solved

    I commute to work by unicycle 2 or 3 times a week, so I figure the frequency of the question deserves a response. As suggested by my brother, I now keep a small wheel in my pocket. When ever asked "Where's your other wheel" or "you lost a wheel" etc., I pull out the 'spare'.

    It's an old rubber caster wheel, if I find a wheel that lighter (and free), possibly a roller blade wheel or something similiar, all upgrade to that.

    It's a friendly route, so hopefully the response will add a bit more to the day.

          "It's you who use too many wheels", well I'm not sure it that would be the right way to say it in English but the idea is that it's not that we lack a wheel, 2 wheels are just too many...

            Eeee. That's the kind of thing I would do if I got asked that enough.

            SO. I will go find a tiny wheel, and carry it around 24/7, so even if I get asked at ANY time, they will know I have the second wheel.

              Daniorama: that's what I'm telling all the time when I see tourists using 4 wheeler bike rikshas in Cracow. Or something like "so many wheels! How can you control that"
              But it is also applicable for two wheelers

              Maybe I should get a nice 20" uni and carry it around on my back when riding my 29er. Then there would be no problem with the reply ;P

                That is an amusing thought. It would probably just cause open jaws.

                      Someone asked me where was my other wheel once, I hd my Trials uni on my back so I had the good answer. Or sometimes when I ride with friends we're not always at the same speed so if they ask me this I just point my friend

                            I usually say that I can already ride without supporting wheel.

                              For what purpose? Real men don't need two wheels.
                              Happy cows come from California. Then at one point, PETA got into the mix and claimed that California cows were not happy. Of course, being the animal experts PETA aren't, they were unable to quantify any method of detecting cow happiness. - JF
