woa, amazing suggestions. thank you all! the thing is, its all good again, i think i probably unicycled a bit too much last week!

btw, now that we are on the subject, is it true that unicycling reduces your sperm count? cause i kinda unicycle a lot, and just in case, something to consider...

i suppose the obvious solution to that is: ultimate wheel!!

I don't think that unicycling affects you any more than bicycling. unless you get repetative "numb-nuts" (if you don't know i'm talking about, then you've never had it), which is you bodies way of telling you that you are not getting enough blood to your nether regions. There are some threads dealing with this, with most of the medical research being taken from studies done with (bi)cyclists.

I guess one way of knowing is to ask as many male unicyclists as possible to go get their sperm tested, haha! I'm not sure how many people will be willing to post their results on a public forum, especially if they are abnormal

  1. Gently remove balls
  2. Polish to a high shine
  3. Replace balls

Although I haven't tried the above advice I do experience the same mallady, even when not riding long distances. I think I'll try the Bag Balm.

Sounds like circumtesticulitis of the leg. Could be nasty. I should see a doctor.

For all we know either side of his balls could be his knees, then I would check seat elevation if they're bothering him.

On a warm day, they can catch in the spokes. On a giraffe, it can be worse: the chain.
