"Unicycler" or "Unicyclist"

Ok, this has been bothering me. Personally I prefer "unicyclist." It makes it sound like a unicycling is a skill.. "Unicycler" sounds like someone who just does it... How does every one else say it. Or is there a single proper way? I've seen a lot of both on the fourms (unicyclist.com)....

Unicyclist is definitly more "correct", although spell checker like in microsoft word and outlook seem to think the word unicyclist doesn't exist....

Ain't is a perfectly good and gramatically correct word, it's just rarely used properly. It is the correct shortening of 'am not', just as 'aren't' is the correct shortening of 'are not'.
