Mayor Julie's Uni converts into mini-Hi Wheel Safety Bike

Newer Older

Famous Davis, CA mayor, conservationist, artist and all-around thoughtful person, dear Julie Partansky (a twin like Myself!) gave me her old unicycle. Which in 2000 I adapted into being able to convert back and forth from unicycle to mini Hi Wheel Safety Bicycle!
2 bolts and a quick release will do it! 2 minutes, tops... Tal, my neighbor, calls it the Wheely Bike. It's easy to go slow and spin the handle bars, circus & kunstrad style, too!

    Human ingenuity knows no limits, I am glad that human power is coming back. Or was it always here, but not talked about. We have to wean ourselves off high efficiency. Why do so many people talk about being efficient ? Petroleum goes boom and a vehicle jumps off so fast. But why ? The pelicans in the Gulf of Mexico can tell you a thing or two about oil. Your imaginative contraptions (in a good sense, of course) show that there are other possibilities. I am very glad that your work is shown in our multimobility group - and who ever has researched the links you kindly recommend us, where races with many of these artistic and original vehicles are shown, will know that riding one of these, or even just watching, is highly entertaining and fun too. That might help with getting use to slow mobility.
