Iain based the following ideas on Alex Elmsley's "The Restacking Pack" which first appeared in the Pentagram, then subsequently in The Collected Works of Alex Elmsley, Vol.2 (written by Stephen Minch, L & L, 1994). The Unicycle Stack recycles in one shuffle. It should be noted that Roy Walton has also devised a one-shuffle recycling stack which he sent to Richard Kaufman for possible inclusion in an annotated version of The Cardiste. The following use smaller stacks, and, according to Roy, are different from what he had, which was, essentially, replacing certain cards in the Elmsley sequence with duplicates.
