unicycling side effects

so i was wondering what are some of the side effects that you guys have that unicycling has caused.

here are mine.

1. i can balence on the back 2 legs of a chair for a over minute

2. i can balence on my bike stopped for a long time

3. people cant trip me as much

4. i can balence on one foot with my eyes closed for almost a minute (try it its harder than it seems then ask you non unicycling firends to do it )

5. i can dirtbike alot faster and im better at snowboarding.



what are your side effects?

My calves have been inflated like balloons. I'm not normally narcissistic, but when I'm wearing shorts and happen to walk past a mirror, I stand on my tiptoes to see those muscular contoured calves bursting through.

I can ride a bicycle up hills now. Speaking of that, when riding a bicycle I seem to forget that I can coast on it, and that it has brakes.

The enigmatic feeling that I used to get when I saw somebody riding a unicycle has long since gone. And seeing a circus or street performer riding a unicycle... seems to look utterly ridiculous to me now.

I always get puzzled why I see people juggling at unicycle meetups/conventions too.

i can now land 720s on my skis, but I think some of that is practicing my 520s more. Uniing has taught me to initiate my spin better though
