They've been around a while, with multiple brands being made. I understand they are not like riding a bike OR like riding a unicycle.

I've got one that has had the front wheels cut off. The odd thing is that it has a coaster brake, so it's actually a coasting unicycle at the moment. Not that I've tried riding it.

I know it as a Skate-Bike and can't ride it for the life of me.

Yoopers once posted a thread about one that had the skater-wheels ('truck', yeah?) at the back and a bigger uni-wheel in the front.

Earlier this month I saw one of these on Craigslist and bought it the other night for $20US. It was made by a Lerun Industries in Malaysia. I've only tried to ride it a few times this week but as mentioned, it's NOT like riding a bicycle or a unicycle. I didn't expect it to be really. I just couldn't resist it adding it to my collection of "wheel-things" for the grandkids to use in the future.

I'm currently learning how to unicycle with little luck, i learned to ride this thing in about 15 minutes. It's way way easier than a unicycle. I'd say a little harder than riding a bike if even. Hops are tough because it's so heavy but it does go pretty fast so it's decent for riding around.

I would LOVE to buy your skate bike if you are willing to part w/it. I'm in VT. My husband is obsessed w/it and I can't find one anywhere!

Yup, and skatebikes are pointlesser. They came (in the early 80s), and they went (not too many years later). Unicycles are still around, and keep getting better!

I have one of those crappy LeRun thing in my shed, I've used it once to get to school and to ride around for fun, then I broke my seatpost while trying to do a 3set It's really pointless though.
