crash or dismount – please vote
In the world of unicycling, there's a simple convention about this –
If you get off the bike and stay on your feet, it is a dismount. If you didn't mean to do it, it's an unplanned dismount.
If you come off and have to pick yourself off the ground (like this guy did), it is a crash or a fall, whatever you want to call it.

To say that he chose to stop is being a bit generous. If you don't want to ride down then choose to stop before the top – that's a choice, what he did was involuntary. Once you're in it by far the simplest thing to do is complete it. "Stopping" there is like trying to get off mid-corner, or mid jump.
So yes, it was a "dismount", but in a place and manner that equals "crash". And then he fell off his feet, which to be fair I did quite recently, on the way home from the pub.Posted 7 years agongegeeMember
my mate "Coco-the-clown" Simon seems to inhabit his own universe, with his own defintion of what is a crash and what isn't. Therefore I'd like the opinion of experts as to whether he's massaging the truth or just talking utter c#*p.Posted 7 years ago
Please watch the following clip and then vote on whether it was a tactical dismount or a clownish crash.
I cant decide if he was properly mincing about, or the camera did the gradient no justice at all and it was in fact vertical? It looks fairly steep when he's fairying about on the scree, judged only by his inability to remain stood.
Still, i'm going for tactical dismount, because he was stood up long after the bike stopped. He was mincing though! lolPosted 7 years agongegeeMember
Excellent comments guys, I think I have about a 60% vote in favour of CRASH!!, so he's gonna have to eat humble pie next time.Posted 7 years ago
In fairness, my camera angle is rubbish – it was 45-degree, scree slope that was bordering on suicidal. If he didn't stop where he did, it dropped to a 60-degree slope!
