    Good thinking. As part of Korbyn's fair taxation system, I expect all bikes with more than one wheel will be subject to a punitive levy.

    From the twats* I've seen riding them in 'town' I think you're only allowed to ride them if you're a fully paid up hipster.

    * If you think that knob-head that killed that woman by riding a bike without brakes was self-righteous on right of way and not needing a bell, these are on a whole different level.

    Though when they eventually implement Death Race, these will be worth a good chunk of points, almost as much as an old granny crossing the road.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    As a method of transport they're a really stupid idea.

    As a method of showing everyone what a twat you are, they're perfect.
    Sort of reminds me of the hippies in the late 80s/early 90s who spent 2 hours learning to juggle then tried to use it to earn enough cash to score a 'teenth. It was better when they used knives or fire as there was a chance of witnessing a serious injury though.

    As something to do, as a hobby, in your garden, and don't enforce anyone else to watch it looks like fun.
    See You Next Tuesday

    Unicyclists should only be allowed in public if they can also juggle at the same time. Free entertainment for the kids. Not like they've got anything else to do with their hands.

    That's a good point. You can be done for pulling a wheelie yet not for riding a one wheeled bike.
