20" to 26" - What to change?
I´d like to know what should I have to change in my unicycle in order to reduce my effort to run long distances.
I live in Brazil and there´s no uni´s dealers over here. I´ve bought a 20" and made a transformation, I enhanced the frame and changed everything that was necessary, I changed the cranks as well (now it has a 150mm).
I think I would have a muni, 26", but I just thought...
I did it thinking that would be fine to ride for long distances, but, unfortunately, it doesn´t work, altough the "set" is bigger the the 20", I have to do the same effort, I mean, I have to pedal a lot.
I hope you can understand my problem, it´s hard to explain even in my native language.
Thanks in advance.

Throw your old cranks back on. That might be the difference you need.

If you are riding a lot of MUni, a 26" with 150s should be great. Maybe think of going down to something shorter like 125 if you want more speed, although in my experience they will give you less control on the bumps.
If you are riding long distances on smooth road you will definitely need a skinny tire at a higher pressure.
Maybe I'm not understanding the question?
