What happened to the BC/Impossible wheel?

I can't seem to find any of these available online anymore, I swear not more than a year ago there were at least 5 sellers just in google shopping results alone.

Couldn't find it on the US store of unicycle.com. The Canadian store seems to be out of stock. You're only other chance for new wheel in North America is www.bedfordunicycles.ca , the specialist in BC wheels. Beford is located in Canada (Toronto), but e-mail or call Darren, he's a really nice guy. If you really want to buy from the US, you can always call/e-mail unicycle.com USA to know when and if they will be restocking them soon.

You might have a chance looking on the sales&trades forums, e-bay or any other websites like e-bay.

That being said, it's not because there's no BC wheels on unicycle.com USA that there isn't any BC wheels at all anymore, I can assure you that the UK store, the NZ store, Sweden store, Danish store and maybe other stores from unicycle.com are actually storing them.

Cool, thank you very much for the info. I'm not sure if I want to get one yet, I like the idea of a BC wheel, have never used one unfortunately though. Was just looking into it for future reference.

That's a huge bummer. I had been trying to find more recent stuff from him. Looked like he could have taken it really far.

K-1 Bryan Stevens Footplates

Hopefully I'll be getting the K-1 Bryan Stevens Pro Model thru Renegade Juggling soon. Even tho Bryan stopped riding he's still by far the best in my mind. There's a chance I'll be selling my old nimbus BC in a little while.

I guess we currently miss enthousiast freaks that push the limits, like Evan Byrne and Spencer Hochberg did.

No, sorry, I basicly only archive seperate skills, no video compilations.
And the BC section of unicyclist.org is not too large:
http://www.unicyclist.org/cont/bc.cfm

I think you'd better try the site-search here on "video Evan Byrne" (or Spencer Hochberg, or without a name).
Like you he was also from CA to, but can't remember from where exactly. His dad was an airline pilot, and he (Evan) was self-teaching, and very aware and smart of what happens in the world. Yes; certainly another interresting and friendly character in the unicycle world. Wonder what catched his attention that he's now not that much around anymore.
