I don`t know why everyone is knocking it. It`s a cool toy and the guy seems to enjoy it.

fun concept, but very impractical. it will remain a toy/hobby for him and maybe sell off a couple if he is lucky.

So basically you have to have your head to the side all the time to see what`s going on in front of you?

totally unstable design. not to mention the frame cannot handle a larger motor...they have poor handling, are slow and hard to see.

thanks but I will stick with a two wheel cycle.

I`ve seen vintage video back into late 1930`s and beyond showing these uni bike things.

and then of course there was the video of him crashing it, and the crash was pretty damn awful, I think I`d rather get into a crash on a normal bike than one of these

These were definitely around before South Park thought of the idea. Tech TV did a special about this guy and his family. He actually made a couple of these

@Tisjokar: these were around before southpark... where do you think they got the idea to make fun of it.... south park isn`t original enough to come up with that idea on their own

gcghost, I and probably gerry and fatninja, watched the video. It still doesnt take away from the comparison. When i see the monocyle i think of the IT.

New Rule: Watch the video THEN comment.
He invented it back in the 70`s. I`m pretty sure that pre-dates South Park. :P

Monowheel vehicles have been around for decades, even before this guy. They all suck, yet people still keep trying to improve them. Why? What advantage could a single wheeled vehicle like this have over anything else with multiple wheels?

It doesn`t mention how many times he has crashed. I watched on video of him going end over end several times.

Even if this thing becomes popular, it will always be known as the It.

1.Even harder to see than a regular bike 2.Conveniently puts your head in line with car bumpers
3.Only goes 57mph on its best day
4. no headlights, taillights, turn signals or mirrors
5. he said "gusts of wind" are an issue
How is this thing street legal?
I give the credit for inventing it by himself but I wanted it to be cooler, more like the Uno.

Well, yeah, but I have one question about the way it works.

MR. GARRISON
Sure.

RANDY
Well, it seems all the buttons on these front and rear flexigrips are also found on the side of the vehicle.

MR. GARRISON
Yeup.

RANDY
Well... so... they don`t really... do anything.

MR. GARRISON
Right.

RANDY
So then, couldn`t I just order one that works without going in and out of my ass and mouth?

MR. GARRISON
Well, I... guess you could.
