I wonder if those things are actually road-legal? Presumably it would need a special exemption to the rules about having effective brakes that apply to modern bikes and other vehicles.
You remind me of when I sometimes saw a unicyclist in our lanes. Turned out he was commuting on it, between home in Princetown (heart of Dartmoor) and work on the edge of Dartmoor - a route that would be hard work on a regular bike!
I was stopped by a pretendy polis, at a footbridge across a creek that has a sign that indicates you shouldn't ride a bike across
- everyone does though..
That's why there were a bunch of commuters being held up and asked for their names and details.
Up rolls a guy on a unicycle
He track stands while this fake polis tries to explain why the wee bike sign applies to him despite it looking nothing like the thing he is sat on. Eventually the guy in the cheap cop cosplay gives up and off scoots the clown on the unicycle..
..his feet were higher than the handrail over the bridge!
Impressive it was... but more bollox than sense really
