Introduction: The Unicycle Freemount: by Popular Demand

About: Hey my name is Jeremy. I have been contributing since september 06, getting in excess of 65,000 hits. I think thats pretty cool. Favorite: Distro: Opensuse Tool: Hmmm, good one. I'd say dremel. Show: Dr. Who …

Ahhh, the all elusive free mount. There are a few ways to get into this. I would recommend the basic one, not a 180 jump mount, not yet at least :). Again, the 5 11 position. This is personal preference, but I have my 5 foot my non dominant. This takes a TON of practice, nearly a month for me :). LAMEDUST: don't unpublish it dude! its good how it is.

Step 1: Other Methods

Give idling a try. This is when you ride forward, back, forward back. Your 5 o'clock foot should be swinging to about 7 O'clock, and back. This gives you a general idea of the process of mounting. That said, nothing beats practicing plain old mounting.

    Have you seen some of the bikes on here? "Very weird" would fit right in! :-D

    Seriously, I think a DIY unicycle project would make for a great instructable.

    You've got to remember that the hub of a unicycle does NOT move while the hub of a regular bike wheel does.
