UDC announces a geared hub of thier own!

http://www.unicycle.com/whats-up/

This could be a game changer. Looks like it'll be based on the NuVinci, no date for release, but if they're announcing it, then maybe we could see something this year!

Awesome!
Here's a pic. It's hard to see because it's made of transparent aluminum:

It's really hard to see, try looking again

Ninety views in ninety minutes, think it'll hit five hundred?

Yeah, it'd be quite the thing, and likely doable, but someone would have to invest the time and money. I wonder if Schumpf would consider it, make it patentable by altering the direction of use.

Happy April 1st !!
