If you are using a one wheel velky, upgrade to a two wheel one. Try a Bull Rider. Their built solid as a rock.

The guy down the street from me weighs about 280 and uses a single wheel velkie. He can't figue out why his tires keep going flat.

Little green is right make him walk for a while who should make you keep paying for new velkes so someone can make you pay $250.00 dollars when he breaks it let him walk for a while.He will probably be a little faster if he burns some of that off and he will be happy you made him do that after he burns that off.:)

How did he break it? I've had a single wheel velke on my machine for years now. The only problem I had with it was the plate got ripped apart from constant stopping and starting. I don't see how you can break one otherwise? And the plate is pretty easily replaced.

If he is a good worker, I would say better get him whatever it takes to make him stay with you. It's harder to find a good worker than a new Bullrider.
