One year ago, northwestern Montana. I made several journeys of a couple of miles over packed snow with no ice, up and down fairly steep slopes, and almost never had a UPD. Once or twice I even managed to stay on when my wheel spun out! Not sure I could have done this on a bicycle, but then again, I probably wouldn't have tried.

Took my neglected 26” out for a spin today, but after riding my 36er almost exclusively the 26 just feels slow, awkward, uncomfortable and... boring? Guess I’m a 36er addict.

@Song: Are you seriously riding in shorts? Is there any weather that would make you wear long clothing top AND bottom?

My general guideline is that as long as the temperature is above 20 F (-6 C), I wear shorts. For climbing steep hills, as I was about to do in the photo above, I think even a little colder than that would be OK. You really get very warm.

You're nuts. I barely wear shorts even in the summer, I can't stand the feeling of even slightly cold calves

What? You mean your calves don't burn when you ride a unicycle? You must be doing something wrong.

Oh well, here's another photo taken right after a UPD, from a ride in the same area, but a couple of miles uphill.

Do you burn up from scraping the tarmac after your UPDs? Then I can understand why you want to wear shorts.

I'm with you on this. Knees and calves are the last part of me to get cold, and pant legs rub on the frame tubes even more than my bare calves do.

I always ride in cycling tights, long when below 60F. No probs with hitting the frame ever!

Cold (10 F) morning ride in Maine on my 26 inch Hatchet. I actually ended up ditching the hatchet after only a mile. It wasn't working too well on the uneven dirt road covered with snow. Just too much self steering and I could not get the valve cap off to put in more air. Possibly frozen. I switched to my 26 inch Nimbus with a studded tire and did several more miles.

Out For a Ride with a Freind

Myself and a friend out for a ride in Scotland a few weeks back. She bought a Mini-Penny on a whim, when I bought my first uni. This is the first time that we have ridden together.

My mate loves hers. She looks very graceful on it.

@Fat D, the second photo is brilliant.

And a photo from my commute this morning. I did small "XC shortcut" so it was more funny than the regular way.
