YooNee, thanks a lot for posting this -- looks like a beauty!

I think they look pretty sweet to be honest. The multi colours even per-spoke is a nice touch I wouldn't be fooled by any perceived 'safety' they provide though.

If you take them off, is it still a unicycle? 'nuff said.

Visibility is safety. It should make him at least a little more visible, and if they are reflective, might make a big difference at night.

I'm pretty sure the Eskimos call this "get-winded-on-a-unicycle-really-quickly snow."

hehe it's raining in Moscow and there's too much snow a few hundred kms to the East. Love Russia. And there have been snow storms in Vladivostok. Actually I'm due to get snowed on tomorrow....
Finally got out on the 36 for a short ride this afternoon, first 36 ride of the year. No pic

Sacramento Unicycle Meetup

Not only did we have a total of four riders, but everyone showed up with a 36" wheel! We rode along the American River levee with some short single track sections thrown in. Not surprisingly, we garnered a fair bit of attention . It was so much fun riding with other unicyclists!!

The weather was finally dry enough to get the GUni out! Me and dad went for a spin round a country park with some weird bits of industrial history.

Here's me stood with a weird single-wheeled thing with some odd geared mechanisms hidden within it... Oh, and my Schlumpf 29er too

And no, my beard is not as big as it looks in this picture, honest
