  1. I wear ice grippers on my shoes. It's amusing to look at the pedals on the ACM2 because the pedals are mostly down to the bare metal, the grips having cleaned most of the grit right off. But it still works, so I've made no attempt to remedy that.
  2. I've posted this in the news, but just because I've talked about it here so much, here is a link to the version of the story that appeared on the local news: https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/one-wheeled-wonder-edmonton-man-rides-electric-unicycle-in-37c-weather-1.4771029
  3. In the end they didn't use the number for the story because it wasn't specific to winter commuting. Still, I plan to keep using the numbers when I talk to people in other settings. In any event, I posted a link to the story in the 'in the news' section. On second thought, I'll put it in here as well: https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/one-wheeled-wonder-edmonton-man-rides-electric-unicycle-in-37c-weather-1.4771029
  4. Some nut is riding his electric unicycle in the middle of winter. https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/one-wheeled-wonder-edmonton-man-rides-electric-unicycle-in-37c-weather-1.4771029
  5. Just got word from the local reporter that the National news has asked for some of his footage, and I'm scheduled to a live Skype hit for the TV station in Toronto tomorrow, this is getting interesting now.
  6. Reporter followed up to ask how many consecutive days I've been doing this, so that's encouraging.
  7. I'm not sure I would even mind; if a casual wipeout gets a few more views (which it probably would) then that could be worth it.
  8. You're making a excellent case for wheeling as a retirement activity.
  9. Okay, so the interview with local news folk is in the books. They took lots of footage of me riding around in two inches of snow. It's -26c right now and the temp actually seems anti-climactic after yesterday. The bad news is that I had my first wipeout of the winter; there was some drifting snow on the bridge and I of course was trying to show off for the camera. Fingers crossed, he won't use that part. I'll know soon, the story is expected to air on the 6pm news tonight.
  10. The thing crashed into a wall during the show, people had to start wearing helmets to use it. When you need to wear a helmet to sit in a chair... you need a different chair.
  11. I'm really missing the downvote button.
  12. Just because the average income level of a country is low doesn't mean there are no wheels there.
