I have a question for all you who are knowledgeable on unicycle durability issues. I’m 6’3" and weigh 220 lbs and currently own a 20" no-name unicycle…the thing has no markings on it whatsoever, except for the tire which is marked DURO and little plastic cap on the crank that says SHUN. I bought it from a local bike shop at the end of last summer for about $65 not knowing hardly anything about unicycles. All I knew is that my little sister got one and was getting good at it, which made me think “Hey, I can do this too!”
Since the weather has gotten nice I’ve been getting back on and getting a lot better. I’m thinking I’ll be wanting to learn to do some jumps soon. I can already ride off a small curb. I am worried about how much force my unicycle can take, however. I figure I should get a new unicycle with a bigger tire, but I can’t spend much more than $100…hopefully less.
I see a 24" Torker CX unicycle on Ebay that looks pretty good:
There’s also one made by Sun that is similarly priced…
Anyone have any advice for a big man on a budget that wants to have something nice to ride and hop around on? Thanks!
