Back in the 80s, riding around on my Cabbage Patch Big Wheels, I was the shiznit. With a Monovelo, I could be even cooler, because I won’t have to ask my mom help me cross the street. The modern day big wheels for big kids is giant, single-wheeled, human powered, mode of transportation that drivers sit inside of. Steering is based on shifting your weight, and you brake with your feet, much like Fred and Barney. It requires no driver license AND some styles have LED lights on them. What more can you ask for, really?
