Glad to see someone else has made it back.
So MUnis have shocks, but don't have brakes...
I think that it should have been the other way around.  Sure, there are
exceptions, but I'm guessing that there are more MUnis with brakes than
with shock absorbers (unless you want to count the 3" tires as shock
absorbers...)
Besides that, they showed too many pictures of people falling off while
doing relatively easy stuff.  It makes us look like a bunch of
wannabes.
Thanks for posting it though!

Although I think that the stuff people were falling off while attempting
wasn't easy (steep uphills rolling are really hard), it did look that
way from the viewers point of view.

Thanks for the capture mgrant!

Michael, thanks very much for grabbing the TV coverage and posting the
link. As coverage of these events goes, I'd rate this about a 4 out of
10, but any coverage is good coverage.

Bugman, that kid on the red unicycle is Scout Engbring from Telluride,
age 5.

Thanks Nathan.  I love watching kids that size/age ride.  It is like
they float across they ground.

I believe John Drummond's setup also had a shock on the seatpost....but
then, you'd expect him to have the coolest gear :)
