That doesn't sound too bad. He had an interesting comment about the
pains of riding but overall I think he's made a pretty solid machine.
It was good of him to mention that he learned to uni before attempting
to build.

I don't think there is much of a market for this device, but it'll go
into my list of cool things that will never catch on.

Looks and sounds like it would be a fun little toy. All the fun of a
unicycle without any quad-burn. Imagine the parade possibilities?

Of course, one of the major reasons I ride a unicycle is for a good
quality workout, a workout that just happens to have a whole basket full
of fun thrown in.

I do like the Eunicycle. --chirokid--

PS: The inventor complained about the horrible aspects of the unicycle
seat, then in his Materials list, he says: "A unicycle seat. $24."
Maybe if he'd upgrade to a $48 unicycle seat he have a better feeling
underside. Also, the fact that he is not pedaling causes more pressure
to be "down there."

maybe this will finally get people interested in unicycling, and see it
as a way of transportation instead of simply a circus prop!

btw, i wonder if you have to pedal while riding one? i guess your feet
just rest on platforms...

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety
labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

-taken from the Eunicycle website-
*In practice, it takes several hours of practice to ride it
competently.*


Would that be for unicyclists or for non-unicyclists? I guess for a
unicyclist it would be less than a few hours because we already know how
to keep sideways balance and how to turn corners.

Cool toy.

Edit: reminds me of Gilby's Auto Balance Unicycle. Is that website still
online? Can't find it.
