US bike trade retail guru Jay Townley was telling me the history of them the other day. Apparently, they were the finest unicycles of the day. <br /> And, of course, because unicycles aren't exactly dripping with new-better-faster-lighter gizmos, chances are such a machine will be just as good today as it was then. <br /> I wonder if Floyd can unicycle? Thanks, TBV.

I’ve been on the (eBay) lookout for an original Schwinn unicycle. US bike trade retail guru Jay Townley was telling me the history of them the other day. Apparently, they were the finest unicycles of the day.

I wonder if Floyd can unicycle?

When I was a PFY, I had a neighbor who rode a (schwinn) unicycle around the block and sometimes to school as a mark of his, um, uniqueness. He tried to teach me, but after having the front of the seat hit the concrete and get holed, he stopped giving me the chance. Indoors! Walls! What great ideas, and not what Freddy was trying with me. Come to think of it, he'd have been a skateboarder, in the second iteration. When we tried it the during first go-round, it was without the poly wheels that made them usable. Our interest in the originals (and ones with skates nailed to boards) passed after about six months. Freddy was also the neighborhood expert in firework related and derived explosives. Such, such were the joys! Thanks for bringing them back to mind. I'm sure I won't wake up sweating too many times tonight. TBV Ye gods!
