Unicycle with handlebars, without seat.

Sadly, unicycle juggling would be out of the question

This thing has a regular unicycle wheel and pedals, but the stem curves forward and swoops up, terminating at a pair of wide, swept back cruiser-type handlebars, at a comfortable height to give almost but not quite full arm extension. Padding along the bars in case you need to get the hips in there for some added control.

Why? Well why not? Comfort, style, amusement might occur.

       If yer gonna do that, might as well make it a freewheel with brake lever(s) on the apehangers.   

       Bun.

       Very clever but somebody HAS to have thought of this already right? I know there are a lot of unicycles with handlebars. Take the seat off and you've got sort of a Segway-esque affair. Neat idea.

       I think I need a visual. Could you draw up a little template for this, please, oh please?

       The halfbike is neat for sure, but its really a standup tricycle, not the same as this idea. Will try to make an illustration..

       Actually, one handlebar would have a brake lever, the other a reverse lever.

       I like the idea of a brake for a unicycle. It would make more sense for one of those giant unicycles. Those big ones could have different gears too.
