I like it!
Details please.

How's it ride?

Any chance you've got plans that you'd share?
Sketches or close up photos of the various parts?

I'm guessing that's some kine of universal joint behind the seatpost?

It looks perfect for hauling juggling clubs and a ball for headers. Or lengthen it and you can drag your impractical bicycle along.

Imagine how different American history would be if the pioneers had used these, too.

as i said in the other thread it is only a prototype so the real thing has lights for in the dark as it is a electrics project but no it is not that simple they come on only when it is riden and only in the dark.i am also toying with gloves that when you press say the thumb and little finger to gether it would indercate left and tumb and middle finger indercate right.the final idea is made out of metal.also if you could write in any tiles eg trials world champ or what ever it will be helpful as it can go in my school portfolio to say who ever said they thinks it is good.as i said this baby most likely would not go on sale but is i had a few intested that would buy them it could be done!also how much would you pay for it ?
just make sure you know this is a SCHOOL PROJECT.

the design of the new attaching mechanisem will not let me do this but the prototype would i did think about it although if you fell off god only knows what would of happened and to the person who said it is a three wheeler the uni has all the planes of movement as it would normally!

Sometimes I wonder if the entire sport of Unicycling was invented to test the breaking point of people's troll-senses... It's like we're daring the rest of the world to laugh! :D:D

I also was trying using a trailer on my 36.Schlumpf and was surprised how well does it works.
Only freemount with more then 5kg on trailer is quite hard :D

Thanks for the pic, Mono. That looks really nice.

I'm just odd enough that I have been thinking about the whole 36er and trailer thing recently, but have not been able to work out some of the details. How is your pole connected to the trailer so that the nose of the trailer doesn't just dive into the ground? How are you attaching the pole to you or the uni? I'd love some close-ups if you don't mind.

Excellent work Thinuniking

The trailer I used is normally for a Bicylce.
I modifiered the holding into the middle and used the original shaft on my seat-post.
Due to the fact that we need more shaft rotation to dismount, I cut the pole ( with 2cm freespace between the cut), fixed it back together with an rubber hose.
The important thing is that the constraction from the trailer until the shaft at the seat-post has to be as rigid as possible, otherwise it will flex all the timeThanks for the pic, Mono. That looks really nice.

Hi Mono,
this is somewhat off-topic, but could you describe the attachment of your handlebars to the seatpost? I haven't seen one like that.
thanks,
