    Yea I can dig that. Solice has it's value. Wife & I often think of riding S.C.
    But crits? yea, I potato'd both wheels at a U.C. Davis criterium in...84?
    Fast wheel swap, 5 more laps, then got pushed to the curb and waisted the front loaner wheel. That was it for me too. Man I forgot all about that. memories...

    "Questor" and "MotoAdventureGal" rode the Great Divide, on motorcycles. While riding it, they came across a couple riding unicycles. And, they were doing the whole route, too. Seems like they all crossed paths like three times during the trip. "Q" and "MAG" took some side trips, but, the uni's were moving right along.

    I may have a picture of that guy on the uni. I'll go dig it up and post it. I took it in Darby while I was there for West Fest.

    The crystallized, frozen kind- yeah!


    I'm sort of taking CX kind of serious this year, but I'm going to host a whole series of snowbike races this winter.

    Fat tires is only part of it. I've got a set of studded tires waiting for "white slickrock", AKA Lake Superior ice. :evil

    Well as it turns out...this guy wins. (the uni pictured below)
    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.

    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. :ear

    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.
