Clearly, it could be used either way around by adjusting the tilt of the saddle on the post. The important thing is that the saddle is over the axle.

I still believe it is backwards. In the position shown in the photo it would surely be a serious knee hazard.

The saddle is in the right direction. Last year they sold the bike in for 29€

https://www.boc24.de/shop/fahrraeder...?itemId=540976

so I gave it a try for my daughter. She is 6 years and has short legs (58cm) and could ride it without any adjustments. Before she was riding a 16".

I thought this way when I pick her up at school I can ride there and she is riding back. But if you change the seat height from the lower end to the highest point you have to adjust the angle as well. If not it's rideable but very uncomfortable.

But there are no problems with the knee.

The problem I see with that thing is that the frame sticks out too far - past the line from the end of the saddle to the edge of the tire - so it's going to bang into the ground every time the uni falls.

Sure would save the beginners seat, something always hits the ground whdn you fall !

36er Muni tire On Sale - $82

Just thought I’d pass on a good deal I found to any 36er muni riders out there.

I found the Vee Trax Monster 36er tire on sale at Web Cyclery for $92.50 – but they are giving an extra 12% off (making it $81.40) through tonight (5/29) at midnight. Free shipping too.

There's a Nimbus Oracle 36er with fairly low bids on eBay. It ends tomorrow

http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/Unicycle-36-...257Ciid%253A14

Looking through the pics the tyre still has the little fluffy bits on it, so I reckon it's had pretty much zero use!

Any Idea What This Is?

Never seen one like it. Looks interesting, but not a lot of info.

Damn that's weirdly cool looking... I'd definitely get it just for the weird factor

I kind of thought the same thing. I'm just not sure that normal bearings and seat posts would fit. It's a bit pricey to take that gamble.
