A unicycle???! Are you serious? Unless you are using a bicycle like they did on the Ho Chi Min trail, you really can't carry hardly anything on a bike. A unicycle would be totally useless in my opinion.

Yup. Rice, weapons, ammo, you name it- they used a lot of bikes for transport of supplies. As far as riding goes, bikes would be good for traveling to and from places or for general recon. However, you aren't going anywhere on one unless you are traveling light.

Could be on that particular one. Would have to look at other examples, no two bikes appeared the same.

So the electric motor is a booster not a replacement for pedaling then?
