fabled redesign is still somewhere in the future. Glad to see someone's
putting up such useful content! As the content on unicycling.org ages, your

from a picture in the Miyata book? Anyway, looks like you might want to put
a little more air in your tire before you practice that any more. To
duplicate the mount as the original guy (Hakan) did it, hold the unicycle at
the fork crown. This puts your hand more toward the center of the unicycle,
and keeps it off the seat so you can land on it. Grasp the crown from the
front, with one or two fingers underneath, where the tire goes. This was
easier back in 1983, when all Miyata frames were 24", even if they had 20"
