What a difference an inch or two makes!!
Hello everyone! I'm a long-time lurker here, but only recently decided to create an account. I learned how to unicycle years ago, but took a long break due to personal obligations (like learning to adjust to having a new baby in the house!) and only started riding again two months ago. This is my introductory thread! :-)
There is a sidewalk circle outside of my job that is nearly a mile long, and lots of folks walk the circle every day during lunch. I just bought a 26" Club to keep at work and ride the circle every day. I just got back from riding my first mile on this new unicycle, and every moment was a STRUGGLE to stay on top of it! I'm used to riding either a 3" wide knobby or a Big Apple - skinny little tires are TOUGH to control after almost exclusively riding big/wide tires!
I know that I'll eventually get used to it (although I may upgrade the pedals; the stock pedals are just so tiny) and will soon be able to increase the amount of laps I can do . My eventual goal is to ride 10 miles every day; commuting to work is not an option since I have to take my child to daycare every day, but riding in the middle of the work day should satisfy my insatiable wheel lust.
