Getting back to unicycles after 30 years
I rode an old Schwinn unicycle when I was a teenager and it was probably a 16-20" tire but don't really know (or remember).
I'm 30 years older, 6'-5" tall, 37" inseam, 240lbs and want to start riding a unicycle again. I'm looking for a solid "re-starter" uni that can hold up to my size but won't break the bank. Budget is in the $200-$400 range (plus brake cost if needed)
I plan on riding it around the hilly Arkansas forest trails that I ride dirt bikes and mountain bikes on. Just wanna have fun on it.
For my size, would a 24, 26 or 29 be good size for me?
Do I need or should I want a drag brake?
My hood is very hilly.
Any recommendation on which uni to look at?
