Always good to see a south park idea come to fruition. The change to the steering may appeal to some.

10 miles at 10 mph, no weatherproofing.

You know, I already have a vehicle in my garage that can outperform this, with ultra low emissions[1], greater maneuverability and mine cost less than $500.  Low maintenance as well, and a lot less to go wrong.

"My 13-year-old daughter saw a one-wheeled motorcycle in a video game seven years ago. She asked me if I could build one...I started playing around with designs and seven years later, here we are."

"Anyone who rides a motorcycle will tell you that there's nothing like the thrill of riding headlong on the open road with the wind in your face and worries at your back."

To those people, Chris Hoffmann says: "Try this one-wheeled whiney unstable unicycle that can only go 10mph on flat ground, but don't try it for too long because the battery life is shorter than your lunch break"

Dingleberry Dickwad: Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: There needs to be video of it making a full on panic stop from 45mph or so.

It would have to get going that fast in the first place considering it's top speed is 10mph.


Can it not be ridden downhill?

In San Francisco?

Towards a convenient oceanside cliff?

With huge, jagged rocks at the bottom?

And sharks?

Rik01: Nope. Gonna fail or be reduced to the status of a moped.

(1) No big, shiny engine down between the legs.
(2) No big shiny tail pipes to extend in manly designs.
(3) Not heavy enough to be manly.
(4) Limited customization space.
(5) And the biggest reason of all -- not noisy enough.

I've enough bikers blasting by my home to know that serious riders need serious noise. Mufflers are for wimps.


Or in the real world
1. Too slow to be worth a shiat since you can go faster on a bicycle
2. More expensive than a moped yet less speed and less distance per fueling/charging
3. Balancing on a single wheel isn't for many people.

Show me on the dolly where the bad biker touched you.

This is a peice of shiat.

The guy gets dressed up in a cool black helmet and leather jacket so he can ride his unicycle segway.

IT GOES TEN MPH.

The whole point for getting a motorcycle is that you can get at least some speed, this has NONE.

I love how the video shows a guy going slowly straight down a well-paved street.

Impress me: show me it going across a pothole. Cornering. Going fast. You know, something a moped can't do.

So basically it is like a Segway you can sit on and look less like a douche riding it.
