Intro to me...

Welcome to the forums!

you will find that most people who laugh at a unicyclist going by are
the kind of people who laugh at life. Stop and have a chat. It is a
great way to meet happy people.

Qu-Ax 36er + brake

If you are the kind of person who doesn't mind making a few mods to make
things work I would say go for it.
