We use Slack as our workplace communication tool at Pinkbike and we have a #randoms channel which we use to share an assortment of videos and stories from all corners of the cycling world and beyond...

There's a bike out there for everyone and this one is for the avid unicycler and backpacker. It's called 'What the fork', is made by Flansberrium Fabrications in Quebec and is basically an adventure bike with a detachable unicycle as the front fork.
Flansberrium say, "Ever had a dream where you could go on a bike packing trip, find a good trail, and go ride it on your uni without all your camping gear? Maksym Siegieńczuk has, and he will make it true! This is #whatthefork. Is it a bike? It is a tandem? Is it a uni-bicycle? Call it what you want, but this combines the fun hard rides with the efficiency of the double-wheeler thing."An incredible ski recovery
