Shady Tools Posted May 19, 2015 Share Posted May 19, 2015 Yesterday my charger arrived & worked. I put my wheel on charge at about 9am & it was ready just after 1pm. I spent about 15 minutes in the back garden going from my back gate to the shed. This involves two slight turns & a drop off the grass onto the path. I then wedged the side gate open & extended my route to the end of my front path: I then had to go out to a staff night out with my work. I got back around 1am & decided to use the quiet roads to get some more practice in (bad idea after drinking). All in all I fell off around 7 or 8 times in the hour I was out. These were mainly due to scraping the pedals as I tried a particularly tight corner, catching the pedals on kerbs & generally just psyching myself out - imagining crashing & then crashing. At a couple of points I actually managed to reach what sounded like the 4 beep warning: I crashed & rolled just at the end of this video. All in all I'm quite happy with my progress as this is my first experience on any unicycle. I have grazed shins, scratched elbows, a broken watch strap, a bruised hip, a slice on my right palm & what feels like a cracked/broken rib. I also snapped my potentiometer off which has annoyed me. I am definitely investing in some padding for my wheel (a little late now), wrist guards, elbow pads & rib protectors. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
