Epic four hour MUni at Simi Valley's "Hummingbird" trail on 11/26/11. Super steep, technical and rocky, and since my magura was left at home, I had to ride my 24 MUni brakeless! But it was nice to get back to some real MUni with my trusty KH 24 workhorse, which is really the only one of my unis I would even think of doing a 5 foot drop with!
I was joined by local rider Will Kalman. (Namlak) He's been riding about a year now, and this was his first real ride on technical terrain, and he did a great job. Some good bails at the end, including my big boulder drop outtakes. Hope you enjoy!
Here's a "retro" video from 2007, when I was still riding my UDC brand "radial" 36er, with a T-7. Got a lot of miles out of it. Youtube had muted the original video, so the audio was also lost. I found the raw footage and so I re-edited it with restored sound, so watch for the bit at the end, "will unicycle for food".
I decided to reedit my Fargo Hill climb video, and take out the (admittedly rediculous) music I used in the original. :=) So here's the raw footage of the climb, without music. I like it much better this way.
Fargo Street (in Echo park, Los Angeles, CA) is one of the steepest residential streets in the entire US, known for its massive, wall-like 33% grade! It's just over 500 feet to the top, but it seems more like 5 miles!
Hi Terry, I've been watching your YouTube videos' and I got to say you have inspired me to get back on a unicycle after 40 years! I learned at the age of 11 and used to be pretty good at it, I rode in local parades' and such. I need to get some exercise and drop some weight, and I think this is a good way to do it. I picked up a used Torker CX 20 ' just to get my feet wet again, then later I will upgrade to a better one, but thanks again Terry, I'm going to do this at the young age of 52... Gary
