Mountain Unicycling

OK so it may look weird, but riding a unicycle off road is awesome fun.

Fat Tire Fun

Take one MTB fat bike, cut it in half and what have you got? The awesome Nimbus Oregon!

The Oregon can definitely be a handful on regular MTB trails due to the self steering huge tire, but get it out on wet foreshore sand and it is a bunch of fun 🙂

Goodbye old Buddy!

It’s been a fun and wild ride but it’s time to say goodbye old buddy! to my KH Schlumpf 24″ Geared Unicycle (GUni). It’s headed off to Canada, to a placed called Saskatchewan. With a name that cool I’d love to go there myself, heck I would love to go to anywhere in Canada.
