Bret’s One Wheeler/Unbike

Bret probably has one of the nicest one wheelers out there. He loves this thing and it is so fun to watch him bust out on it. Bret and his one wheeler will be at the jam on Saturday. Come out, watch him kill it and then have a go yourself.

Here’s what he had to say about his pride and joy:

“I remember reading the comic strip called “BC” when I was a kid. One of the caveman characters rode around town on a stone wheel with a stick through it. Who knew that years later I’d build my own version? Anyway here are the specs for my one wheeler:”
