oh! I've been spending the past year on and off trying to learn! PLEASE MAKE AN INSTRUCTABLE!
Although he didn't make it (as far as I can tell, since 2007 when this first appeared) there are some out there.....(link to one found in search)

Haha, alright. (and hey, I can put it in the go green contest)
Word. One wheel totally saves all the energy and materials of making a second wheel.

Along with the handlebars, the rest of the frame, gears, chain, brakes, etc. Plus, since you can't coast on a uni, it builds more muscle.
Why can't you coast? Yes, I know it doesn't have the free-wheel doodad in the hub, but why not? If you're using your unicycle to commute and not do tricks (I've seen people on commuter trains with unicycles, far easier to deal with than bicycles), what's wrong with being able to free-wheel? Or have I just given somebody an idea for an Instructable?

Because the pedals are directly attached to the wheel...so if the wheel wants to spin, the pedals have to as well.
Theoretically, is there anything stopping you welding a set of pedals onto the ends of a free-wheel hub and using that in a unicycle?
