Anybody have one? I am thinking of picking one up used to fit into my stable next to my mt bike. This one is an 07 and has been sitting for 2 years after about 500 miles of riding. Too big for him.

I'm curious if anyone here has one and would share their ride experience please.

You asked if I rode a Century ride on my uni? This guy does...and more. He's doing a cross country trip on his Unicycle. Here's the link. And he's really into fine dining along the way.

Thanks for the reply. This is an 07 so it has the full Ultegra group, which is nice. I'm looking at it today after work. I'm not planning on doing much real long distance right now. There are a great number of dirt roads and rail trails that I can explore better on a cross bike I think than my mt bike. I've always been mroe of a "roadie" any way.

When I was in college I carried the rack, (now installed on my mountain bike/truck, and these same bags full of engineering books) on my commute 26 miles form my home out by the foothills down the hill into Denver. And then I'd slide one of those kid seats on and take my oldest daughter for a spin when I needed more work in my legs.



My racing bike did not have lugs, (silly French bike), but that never stopped me from using it like a car. My earlier Mirage, had full lugs and cheesey components to match the stamped dropouts, and waterpipe frame tubes. (1080)...

What does "lugged" mean?

the screw holes for attaching racks, fenders.



re: racks-n-fenders, my old Frenchie, a 1975 Motobecane Grand Record touring bike, nearly always had a blackburn rack, and I mounted fenders every winter (out on the left coast here, once it stops raining in late spring, it doesn't rain again until the following winter). But, I didn't own a car 'til I was nearly 30, I commuted by bicycle for years and years.
