I havnt been around recently, but I want a 26 inch Muni. Seriously, the coker is great for roads and the monty is great for trials, but I have nothing in between.
So Im looking for the best value. Im a poor college kid, and this is comming out of my food budget (I only have money for food and books, and thats streching it.)
So anyways, Im looking for something good.I could always just switch seats between my monty and this, so the seat doesnt need to be perfect. preforably a 3.0" tire. Doesnt need to be profile, but I weigh 150 lbs and I’ve totaled a hub before, so nothing too cheezmo.
Anyways, If I could get some reccomondaions that are around 300 bucks. I could go higher or lower depending on what im getting. Im really looking for value here.
Is there anything closer to 300 bucks? Undoubtedly, the Kris Holm is a great value, but it’s 1.5 times more expensive than the price range he’s looking for. I got my entire setup for a lot cheaper, but that’s a different story.
My personal recommendation is to not rule out 24"x3" munis. Like Mike said, a 24 uni with a 3" tire effectively makes it a 26er. And it does increase the rim strength slightly.
Anyways, no particular recommendation, but just remember to keep the 24 munis in mind.
You could always build a muni.
I built mine for under $300. I’m riding an intense 24x3 with monty 158 cranks, a suzue hub (I only weigh 105, and I’m getting an Onza for trials), a KH seat, Yuni frame, and Zuzu pedals. That’d go for around $350-$400 on unicycle.com. You can also save at least $40 by welding together your own frame. I did three of them and then decided that I wasn’t confident in my welding skills enough to ride a home built frame. I must say, though, my welds were better than the ones found on the Yuni frame (not that it’s a bad frame). Also my frames used chromoly. You can save money by just building your own wheel.
