Just stop and say "show me..."

That will shut him up, but if he doubles down(meaning: he is lying, but is stupid enough to try).
He will get a good lesson on spiked pedals.

Keep on...
Haha..i have had a few similar shouts...and the common one where someone is like 'That's easy, stop showboating' ....
some go overboard by calling you a freak..i mean..when did taking your tie and interest to learn something make you a freak?

I've been called a "poser" and accused of being an "attention seeking showoff".

Fortunately such negativity is quite rare.

That's the one I forgot from the other day (see my previous post), a woman riding the opposite way smiled and said "Showoff". I had just enough time to say "That's me!"

I might as well own it. I mostly don't even thing about the showing off aspect of unicycling anymore, but it's still there. Otherwise I could be riding something much more efficient... if boring.

"Showoff???... It's super easy and anyone that can walk can do it. You should try!"

Let 'em think about it later.
