Yes.

There used to be someone who posted her called Unibiker (now sadly deceased) who built a geared unicycle out of the rear end of a bicycle. He used to aim for 15 miles ridden in an hour elapsed, if I remember correctly.

Are you asking if I personally can do it or if it is possible in general?

I myself could not do it but I know it can be done. A couple years ago, I saw a rather odd small giraffe unicycle that was made from a bicycle back in the 1960's.

Facts are not established by votes. It is possible. It has been done.

I'm on BST, which is GMT + 1.

Sure. Just remove the front end of a BMX, weld on a seat post, and you're good.

No, You will have another wheel, say, a BC wheel, and it will be 2=2, not 2=1.



Buuuuuut

1 = 2?

1+1=2+1
2=3
2*6=3*6
12=18

So here is where the fun starts:
12*0=18*0

0 = 0

1 = 2?????

Anyone know the answer except for me?

Or you could do:

1 = 2?

1+1=2+1
2=3
2^0=3^0
1=1

Set poseeble!
