      Old thread I know...
      but I just went to see pitch perfect and I noticed a unicycle in it multiple times which made my day.



      For anyone who hasn't seen it, I fully recommend you do its so funny and nothing like Glee.

        This is a really cool thread as it combines two of my favorite subjects: unis and movies. Although the number of DVDs in my collection far out number my unis.

          Didn't feel like it merited a whole new thread. Found this while searching for old Lego ads in historic Sears Wishbooks:
          I'm different, yeah I'm different. I'm different, yeah I'm different. Pull up to the scene and my wheel is missing. Pull up to the scene and my wheel is missing.

            That's pretty interesting.
            Has anyone reading this ever used poles as a learning aid, or heard of them being used?

              I've heard of someone using ski poles to learn, but don't remember who...

                  Seems like a read somewhere, perhaps in a how to book, that using poles to learn to balance was dangerous. Which seems like it might be true. Think about what might happen if your face hit one of the poles as you fell sideways or forward.

                    I have examples of both that 24" and the 16" in my garage. Wow, $16.99 for the 16"! Mine is a slight variation, but it appears to be the Troxel I originally learned on. Many people from my generation believe unicycles to be impossible because they tried to learn on those. Terrible.

                    I never used them but they were out there. Generally they were too short, especially if you raised your seat up to a proper height (if the cycle allowed for that). The main danger was a sudden fall on one, where you could impale yourself or poke an eye out. Secondarily, learning to ride by holding onto something in front of you results in bad riding posture; something you would later have to unlearn.

                        Did it come with the poles?

                              Does this count - the game is called "Joe Danger - The Movie"?

                                not a movie, but today during the NCAA Tostitos Bowl game, the Kansas State University commercial featured a kid on what looked to be a Kris Holm 20"
