Ah, not what I was expecting, but cool.

I'm more of a MUni person, myself.

And Toronto Unicyclists play a great game of "flaming puck unicycle hockey".

You know up until now I was wowed by the mere Adam Savage interview. Nowadays it takes flinging bowls into one's crotch via unicycle.

Looked to me like she flung the bowls onto her head...

Unicycling is a big part of primary school physical education programs here in Japan. Here's something of note.

Holy hell. I would've been impressed if she flung those bowls onto her head from a STANDING position, let alone balancing on a huge ass unicycle with one foot.

Two summers ago, at the Fargo skatepark, I saw a couple of crazy unicycling kids. They had hardcore unicycles that were made of the same bombproof components as BMX bikes. I was so amazed at their agility -- and the weirdness of it all, that I took pictures and videos.

If you watch nothing else, watch this.

Sometimes I say crotch when I mean head. It's my thing.

That was very, very impressive. Now let's see her take that uni down the face at Top of the World in Santa Cruz.

Speaking of crotches, that's the main reason why unicycling never caught on as an extreme sport - unicyclists have no sense of natural shame.

No, not the crotch pain. Jesus, have you seen skaters land on their nuts on a handrail from 3 stories up? They don't care about that.

No, I'm talking about that gay little crotch grab unicyclists do when they grab the front of the seat and flail their free arm around for balance. That shit just looks totally wrong, man. It's like watching that retarded kid on the bus who keeps reaching for his junk but then suddenly remembers he's not supposed to.

Don't get me started on the backside seat grab. Deep dookie fishing.

paging dr. freud, white courtesy telephone please..

To be honest, I was staring at her crotch the entire video. Is that so wrong? Didn't even know there was a unicycle involved until I read the thread.
