Reviews:

“A wheel, a trail, legs and lungs–what could be simpler or more beautiful? With straightforward prose and clear, helpful photos, Kris Holm illuminates the techniques, pitfalls, joys and terrors of mountain unicycling for the beginner and aficionado alike. The Essential Guide to Mountain and Trials Unicycling reveals a sport far more diverse and accessible than is immediately apparent, and celebrates the adventurous spirit shared by climbers, skiers, hikers and all who
love being in the mountains.”
— Michael Kennedy
Long-time climber and Editor-in-Chief, Alpinist Magazine

“In this book Kris shows that you don't have tobe an elite athlete to have fun. It reminds me of the early days of mountain biking, when people were intimidated before they realized that there are many ways to experience this beautiful sport.”
— Hans Rey
Former Bike Trials World Champion and Mountain Biking Pioneer

“From slacklining to World Cup ski racing, mountain unicycling is one of the best ways to cross train for both physical balance and mental control. Finally we have a book that explains how to do it.”
— David Hobbs
Former U.S. National Telemark Ski Team Member

“When I first met Kris in 1991, I would never have guessed that muni would turn into the diverse and established sport that it is today. Kris shows us that unicycles have as much a place in the cycling world as any two wheeled bike.”
— Andreas Hestler
Olympian and 2-time Cross Country Mountain Bike Canadian Champion

“Kris’ book offers entertaining insight into our sport’s history and his personal experiences as a extreme unicyclist. It is a valuable handbook for every rider who wants to improve and enlarge his or her repertoire of unicycle skills…”
— Lutz Eichholz
Mountain Unicyclist and Guinness Record Holder

“Kris Holm is a kindred spirit who has great respect for the natural world, building community while helping redefine his sport. His book is intriguing whether you're a serious unicyclist or simply want a fun diversion alongside your major sport.”
— Lynn Hill
Climber

“It's exciting to finally see a technical book published about our activity, and with such quality. This guide is what was missing to establish mountain and trials unicycling as fun but serious sports.”
— Anne Sophie Rodet
2010 Technical Muni North American Champion

“From learning newcomers to even the most experienced riders…this book provides both visual instruction and showcases the amazing progression of the sport.”
— Max Schulze
2010 Unicycle Trials World Champion

“This book does more than teach unicycling - it expresses the feeling of mountain unicycling. Kris…shares his life long experience and makes world class unicycling skills understandable for beginners.”
— David Weichenberger
DH Muni Multiple World Champion
