Three-Wheeled Contraption Somehow Makes Unicycles Even Less Cool

Given it has three wheels I know it's technically wrong to call this thing a unicycle. But instead of being positioned as a tricycle for adults, the Cycocycle was designed as an extra stable unicycle that anyone can ride.

So it's a lot easier to just hop on and take it for a spin if you've never been on a unicycle before. Although, unless you work as a busker, a circus clown, or are actually getting paid to look like an obnoxious hipster, there's no reason for anyone to choose a unicycle over a regular two-wheeled bike.

Thanks to a set of heavy duty tires and various footholds and handles built into the frame, the Cycocycle can also be used for performing stunts like you're on a BMX bike straight outta 1986. Just don't expect to blow anyone's mind because without the added element of having to balance, your tricks won't be that impressive.

At least at around $US82 it's priced cheap enough so that you don't feel so bad when you stop using it after a week. [Cycocycle via TechCrunch]
