begginner unicycle

I’m just looking into buying my first unicycle and I’m wondering whether I
should get a 24" or a 20"… which is easier to ride? Is their that much of a
difference in speed?

any advice appreciated, Raoul

Re: begginner unicycle

I learned on a 20" Schwinn when I was 12 years old. That just happened to be the
size that I found at a garage sale. After I learned to ride I quickly started
looking for a 24". The 24" gets you from point A to point B faster. I found it
to be much more fun. If you’re tall enough for a 24" get the 24". Look for a 24"
with 5.5" (140mm) cranks. Some 24" unicycles come with 5" (125mm) cranks that
are used for racing. The shorter cranks make it harder to learn on. Get the
longer cranks.

Also, look for a quality unicycle to learn on. Don’t try to learn on a beat up
piece of junk. And after you learn to ride buy a new seat to replace the one
that you just trashed. :slight_smile:

I tried both before ordering and found the 24" much easier to get on with.
