When you're grateful it's just a wrist/hand/arm injury cos you can still ride, and not a leg/back/bum injury which would keep you off the uni!

To follow up on my little craigslist story, "you know you're a unicyclist when you convince another unicyclist to keep the uni he's selling because it's his only 20" and they're the best size for learning new tricks."

Yeah, instead of talking him down in price I convinced him that no unicyclist should be without at least one 20".

Back on the thread...

You know you're an unicyclist when... you count how many lamps there are in the underground car park under your building in order to buy brighter bulbs to turn it into a practicing area for the winter months.

I know I'm a unicyclist because:

I avoid flying as much as possible because I never know how well each airline will treat my uni, and when arriving in each new country or city, I immediately scan the footpaths for suitability for a nice cruise on my unicycle, and on any walk I picture myself unicycling instead.

My home is my backpack, my laptop and my unicycle. I think I've done several continents and 30 countries in almost 2 years.

I've found it really interesting how people from different places react to the unicycling.

You know your a unicyclist when you can't get your homework done because you are constantly day dreaming of riding Muni lines.

It is but gets you tons of torque for tech sections and pretty much negates the need for a break. The box feeling is a bit less the bigger and heaver the tire is. The main thing I'd want to find out is what type is the axle spline interface. Eg ISIS. And make sure there are other crank size options that can be bought.

I got my 2006 Torker DX before I knew the value of having different crank lengths. I found that Qu-Ax 10 spline was compatible, got some 170's and have never had the desire w/ the original 150's since.

You know you're a unicyclist when...all you think about is when you can ride again. You have a unicycle tattoo on your arm. You have a jar of crotch butter by your camel pack. You have 16 unicycles of all sizes but it's still not enough. You have been sewn up, stapled, bruised, stung, bitten, and cramps so bad that you had to crawl!

You know you are a unicyclist when you see men building something out of concrete and you think, "I can't wait to ride it!"

You know you are a unicyclist when-

your wife let's you hang your unicycle in the entryway of your home (part time home with no garage but hey, it counts)


Try to top that married men!

Both my unicycles reside in the kitchen. However, I'm not married, and so the only woman in the house is my mother, and she is always hinting at them being moved outside to the shed

You know you are a unicyclist when-

you order a tyre in a restarant instead of a bottle of wine.

Instead of ordering a Gnarly Head (californian zinfandel), I ordered a bottle of Surly Knard and I hadn't even started drinking yet.

That's awesome UniMyra!

I'm always thinking about unicycling at restaurants, but never ordered anything related to it.
