I’ve been using a Sun 20" to learn to ride a unicycle for the past few weeks, but really want to get something bigger so I can go faster and longer distances. Right now, I’m really interested in the Coker Big One. My main use will be riding around town. I might try some muni later on, though. I’m trying to figure out what tires would be best. There are three tires listed at Coker’s website: Their button tread, the XLR road tire, and the non-skid tire. Obviously, the road tire would be great for just riding around town, on-road. How do the others do on-road? Would they significantly slow me down (speed won’t necessarily be critical- I doubt I’ll be racing it)? Would they be more bumpy? Also, how would the other two do riding on a trail? Would the non-skid tire be suitable for a muni tire?
I’m also thinking it might just be easier to either get a 26" now, or get one in the future if I decide to do muni- instead of taking the Coker off-road. How is the Coker able to handle off-road in general?
