All opinions welcome.
I am 5’9" tall, weigh 170 and have a 30" inseam
I can static mount and ride 150 yards on flat smooth or gravelly terrain
I want to ride more often, and to learn more technical riding skills
I’m a gear head
In the long run, I want to be able to ride it all: cruiser to work, muni on the weekends, play on the many features around town
Current Cycles Owned:
Semcycle XL 29 with Kovachi wheel and Big Apple tire (love it, but it is out of place in my yard)
Yuni Journeyman 26 entry level muni (bought for wife, I ride it more than she does, I like it)
Goal for new uni:
Ride in my yard, or on features around town, every time I have five minutes
I could ride one of the cycles that I have, working on mounts and handling, etc. But my yard is unusual, it is covered with concrete and brick paving, different levels, steps and curbs. I think it would be a playground on a unicycle that has a smaller wheel with relatively long cranks. Also, I find myself wanting to dink around on features during the day, when I have a few minutes. But when I jump on my 29 I have to turn back just when I am up and going.
So, should I buy a cycle with a smaller wheel? If so, which one?
Current cycles under consideration:
Torker DX (2006) with a 20" or a 24" wheel
Do I get a DX 20 or a 24?
Is there another cycle that I should get instead of the Torker DX?
Thanks for all comments! I need feedback!
