The idea for the unicycle came from a friend who thought it would be a cool thing to make using SolidWorks.  After making it, I think I have to agree that it was a good choice.  I figure that if later on I want to make a bicycle, I can use some of the same parts like the wheel and the pedals.  I used circular patterns on the wheel for the spokes and the treads.  For the grip on the pedals, I used fill patterns in order to fill the area.  This model was created in SolidWorks 2011; if you have an earlier version of SolidWorks you can go here to 3D Content Central to download the model for your version.  I hope you enjoy.
