If you look in the "progress" section, the site has been hosted since
early 2000. nothing has happened with it since january of 2001. I
wouldn't expect anything exciting to come out of it.

too bad.

'mountainunicycling.com' (http://www.mountainunicycling.com/) was
created by Carl Hoyer, a Toronto area rider.

He stopped development on the site because other sites like 'muniac.com'
(http://www.muniac.com/) and 'unicyclist.com'
(http://www.unicyclist.com/) filled the void so there is no pressing
need for another unicycling site with info and a forum and stuff like
that.  I'm sure Carl will eventually turn his site into something, we'll
just have to wait to see what he does with it.  

He's going to be snowed in very shortly so I'm sure he'll find time over
the long cold dark Winter to work on his site. :)

I'm the one you can heckle for starting and not finishing
mountainunicycling.com. The original idea was to provide a resource for
the mountain unicycling community that would also showcase the sport to
non-riders in an ezine type format. The motivation behind
mountainunicycling.com came from these sites which provide a high
quality resource and showcase for their respective sport:
http://www.nsmb.com
http://www.webclimbing.com/
http://www.biketrials.com/
http://www.biketrials.ca/

I wanted one of the central focuses on mountainunicycling.com to be
forums. At the time there was no forum for off-road riding. Most of the
MUni conversation took place on rec.sport.unicycling and still does
largely through unicyclist.com. Not long after the concept of
mountainunicycling.com came about muniac.com offered a MUni centric
forum and I don't really see any value in creating another one.

Another thing that led to the demise of mountainunicycling.com was time
.. or lack of it. It typically takes a lot of time to produce a quality
design and content. My priority is to my job which I get paid for, so
mountainunicycling.com took the backburner.

That all being said ... I have been hashing out a new plan over the past
couple months. I'm not sure it will take off cause it's even more work
than mountainunicycling.com. I wouldn't be able to handle it all myself
but it would be really cool. I'll reveal more later.
