I had thought of that also and have seen a few variations of thattype of setup. However "IHO " it takes away from from the whole look.

Secondly the braking wheel or skid would need to be far forward to keep the main wheel from lifting (similar to locking up your front brake) or at least losing traction & control in a quick stop.

Dosen't seem to be a good answer to the problem or the MONO-CYCLE would still be around today.
