or an automatic crankflipper? lol

I am not a rider of anything over 24", although it looks fun. But i am exited for what is to come. That would be sick if it was a KH 08 36".

Depends on how long your toast stops were previously.

On a two hour ride, with half an hour for toast stopping, getting out the gas-powered trail-toaster and carbon toast-rack, setting it all up and having a brew (did I mention that the rocket booster also does tea if you get the optional kettle?). So you could be looking at a 25% increase in speed without any additional effort!

It can also cut down the time before you even start riding by letting you roll out of bed and onto the unicycle, having breakfast on the go.

Can't wait!

Oh dear Roger! We were expecting something a little more sophisticated than just a rear facing ignition source.

Smile CNN news just leaked it

Ok the wait is over.












CNN found out the truth..










SQUARE WHEEL IN ALPHA TESTING FOR UNICYCLE'S>

DR Screwball released to the press early this morning the perfection of the square wheel.

After years of research the square wheel works perfectly on modified road surfaces. Its ideal for unkept roads which are full of pot holes and neglect.

Dr Screwball admits that the square wheels doesn't work well on road surfaces that are in good repair but suggests that many roads and trail are in disrepair.

Dr Screwball is best known for his research in "Square Pegs in Round holes", And his published works on "Where do lost marbles go?"

See CNN for more details.

That would be really useful for all the inverted catenary curves I usually ride on.

I've been trying to figure a way to do that.... my phone always dies on long rides...
