Talk to the orginizer of the competition, that is the only way to find
out, and do it before hand. My guess is if you just show up and try and
compete they will probably say no, I probably would if I were
organizing a bike trials competition and a uni showed up wanting to
compete. Also keep in mind that the obstacles at a bike trials comp
tend to be much larger than a uni comp. Or at least from the trials
comps I have seen.

Yeah talk to the event organiser. I guess it depends how many people
there will be there and how serious the competition is

I have been doing it ever since I started. You do have to get used to
the rules that bikes use. It's funny, I won beginner, then the next
year I won intermediate against bikers. It was awsome .

Hi,

I think i remember that for the 26" bikes, touching the ground with
anything else than the tyre is penalized.
In trial with 20" wheels, they can touch obstacles with the protection
of their chainwheel to.

So they might or not allow you to do pedal grabs. But i would find fair
to let you compete, bikes can easily pass some obstacles almost
impossible for unicycles.

if you were running a unicycle trials comp, would you really want guys
there on bikes?

It's really up to the organizers. Although if I were organizing a bike
trials comp I wouldn't let a unicycle compete, because its' a different
sport. The manuverability of a bicycle is just different than a
unicycle. It's a different sport

It's interesting to have seen the advancement of bike trials, esp.
things like doing away with the seat and post altogether, and doing
mostly rear wheel hops. SO, isn't a unicycle just the logical
progression of trials equipment?
