Riding with a Hernia

I ride with JC all the time which is pretty much like riding with a
hernia. I have had no trouble with it so far.

Too many flats... here's one solution.

I don't see how going tubeless can prevent the puncture flats discussed.

punctures? I thought that it just prevented pinch...

Road damage is proportional to the 4th power of the axle load. A MUni
has one axle, a bike has two. If the MUni and the bike weigh the same,
and the riders weigh the same, the MUni will do 16 times...

What does rain do to your unicycle?

You live in the desert, what do you care? Rain makes your unicycle wet.
Hosing it down probably does very little to it. Submerging it will
eventually get water in the bearings.

Fall up rather than down. There's usually less stuff to hit that way.

ridden more than once a year for the entire 45 years.
