If your typical travel-to-river MO involves rides such as rollerblades or the crash-prone Segway (see Mall Cop for details), wait till you get a load of this. Focus Design’s SBU version 2.0 unicycle promises a sleeker look, safer ride, and more power. Get yours today for $1,499. “Essentially a one-wheeled Segway, the SBU 2.0 puts out 1000 watts of power and sports three gyroscopes for smooth turns. The battery has about a 12-mile range and enough juice for the SBU to top out at 10 mph, though the average speed seems to be a slow jogging pace.”Source Link
