well, i have decided to get a unicycle. After about 6 months, of going on a friends for a short while at weekends, i am going to get one of my own (now that my parents will let me). I would consider myself as O.K, i am level 3 i think, currently trying to learn to idle and then ride backwards.
I have decided that a 24 would be best, so i can use it for everything, Muni is probably the main use, followed by trials. I cant decide what to get though, as my budget limits me. Ideally the unicycle needs to be as cheap as possible.
My ideas so far are:
either Nimbus 1(£23) or 2 (£32) frame. What are the advantages of the nimbus 2 over the 1, is it worth the extra £10?
Bicycle euro cranks (150mm) (£10)
halo inner tube (up to 3inch) (£6)
halo contra tyre (3inch, £23) or ception (2.6inch, £20) Which would be better???
seatpost, standard, 300mm (£5)
seat, donated by my friend , until birthday when i’ll get a Velo.
the wheel is the problem. Definately a susue hub(£36), 36 spoke, but which rim?
i had thought about several, the combat/doublewide/ryhno lite/mammoth (or bfr). Which would be better. On the unicycle.uk.com i only see the combat, but i believe roger can order in sun rims.
from www.chainreactioncycles.com the doublewide is £35, and the others £25, is it worth the extra £10, bearing in mind my current biggest drop is 2feet.
This also means i would have to get the wheel built, at further cost. So it would be preferably to buy everything(bar seat) from unicycle.uk.com
does anyone know how much the sun rims cost from roger?, and if there would be an extra charge for building.
thanks for reading, please reply with your thoughts and ideas
