I'm sure the battery from my helmet-mount light has that much.

I was hoping to purchase a 36" uni by the end of this year, but I just called unicycle.com to see if this rumor of "big 36 news" was worth waiting for. She said I should "definitely wait till January".

So it's not a benefit just for Canadian unicyclists, (as I surmised from the sixth reply to this post). My theory that it has something to do with Brian MacKenzie's new site has less relevance now. I'm intrigued, and wondering how many 36ers I need to own.

Wink Ok the cats out of the bag...

I called 1800 number and got the information.

Its not really a secret...

A new multigeared 1m (1 meter) Unicycle has been released.
Thats one meter diameter wheel, since most of the world is metric they went 1m not inches.







Keep scrolling down for more details



It has eighteen gears.
















Due for release in 2013






Oh yeah, they also told me what the winning lottery numbers are for the next draw.

Next you'll be telling me that the "one meter" is divided across two separate wheels - one in front, one behind. This would create some kind of "bi"cycle I suppose.

Opps forgot to mention 18 wheels too

Love these secret games

Guess my point I'm trying to make.

Post fact not fiction.
If someone can't tell details, it just noise in a sea of data.
Best just ignored (Like this post).
Don't you hate verbal diarea.

Instead of a wheel, the frame has a 36" jet pack mounted on it.

Sorry UDC I couldn't hold it any longer
