Record breaking mono-wheel
« on: 08.09. 2016 23:46 »
I've seen a few videos of these things. Just imagine what's going to happen to the rider/pilot if they have to apply hard  braking; the wheel will lock in relation to the frame and engine and the whole thing, including the rider will roll forward, out of control! It's a dumb idea I reckon.
