So long Segway, the SBU is the latest urban vehicle for circus clowns

The SBU (Self-balancing Unicycle) from Focus Designs was pitched Friday night on Shark Tank. It uses some of the same self balancing style features of the Segway and puts them in a much more portable package that has only one wheel. According to their website, it only takes 20-30 minutes to learn to ride one. You can buy noob wheels training wheels if you need extra help getting the hang of it. With a max speed of 15mph, the SBU runs on electricity and is capable of holding up to a 325lb person. Want one? Fork over $1795.00 and it’s all yours.
