Not a pretty beast, and not easy to ride. It took me thee weeks of practice before I could ride it, and only after that could I “sort of” ride it. No free mounting or anything crazy like that. The balance point is just crazy difficult compared to a regular unicycle.
I still plan to “shine it up” and build a small backrest. I originally wanted a nice large backrest, but I decided that it would hinder the ride ability of it.
Here’s the building process, which went together really fast (it is a hack):
Cut up a bike and figure out roughly where I wanted things:
All trial and error, with some guessing:
Weld a seat together out of some old bike tubes:
Weld it all together and cover the seat:
Hmm…not too elegant of “steps”.
