Making and Riding the Coasting Unicycle
Idea of Coasting Cycle
I heard that Ken Fuchs and Tom Miller made a coasting unicycle years ago.
I first came across one from the Pennsylvania Unicycle club,
They made one out of a commercially available three wheeler called the Green
Machine which has a 16" wheel. I got to try at a MUNI weekend. I was just
trying up hill on it but they were riding fearlessly downhill. You quickly
discover the easist mount to do back mount. I asked Tom to make me a coasting
unicycle to fit in a Semcycle XL frame with cotterless cranks.

Here is a video
of Elias riding coasting unicycle on first day.
Not there yet... unless you count riding uphill. I was able to mount it without
holding on to something but always going up a hill.
Special thanks to Tom Miller for making it possible.
