In the "I haven't added any new difficult kinesthetic things into my repertoire in a while" department, i've started learning Cyr Wheel.

I've been thinking about it for a while now - I made a wheel last year but never got around to actually *trying* it out until recently this year. Unlike some of the other things of this sort that i've tried (unicycle, walking globe, slack line, etc), this one *IS* as hard as it looks. I went down a few rat-hole-blind alleys working with a wheel I made which turned out to be way too big for me; ended up selling that one and making a smaller one that is a much better fit, after which progress got much faster (but by no means *fast*. it's baby-steps all the way with this apparatus so far.

It's quite fun though.

This is a video made from todays practice session, where i've finally got the basic waltz well enough to start flailing at some variations of it.

That's cool.

How difficult was it to make/bend the wheel?
