Introducing Myself

Hey everyone! I’m new here and new to unicycling in general. I have wanted to learn for a long time but am just now getting around to it right before my 28th birthday. I have about 11 hours of total practice time over two weeks so far. I’m right on the cusp of being able to really ride my unicycle, I can feel it! My trainer uni is a Torker CX 20 but I also have an LX 24 that I’m kind of saving until I can ride better so that it doesn’t get banged up as quickly as my CX has. Anyway, I look forward to benefiting from everyone’s experience here and I hope to be able to contribute something from time to time too.

Welcome Rhybus9, 11 hours in, sounds like your determined and will learn to ride, congratulations.

The Torker LX is a good uni, I have a 26 LX myself. Just wait until you see some of the high end and custom unicycles some of the member have and you’ll be drooling and or spending money.

Happy Birthday when it rolls around.


Enjoy, I waited until I was 46 to learn.


DON’T GIVE UP It will “click” one moment and you’ll be on your way.

You have found the secret of success: Practice, practice, practice! I would suggest doing at least an hour a day (you’re close), if that is possible. Doing a few minutes here and there doesn’t really work, as far as I’m aware.

If you are comfortable starting with the 20", stay on that. The 24" may get you riding forward more quickly, since it is more stable than the 20". But if you learn to control the 20", you’ll have no trouble moving up to the 24". Whichever one you chose, I’d stick with it for a while. There is a lot of info on the forum related to 20" vs. 24" for beginners. Check it out.

Welcome to the forum. Keep us posted on your progress.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Yes, I am definitely staying dedicated and practicing a lot! I was out practicing for about 2 1/2 hours yesterday, managed to ride 10-12 yards or so several times without hanging onto anything and even successfully free mounted a couple of times. Today my knees are feeling it a little so I’m taking a break, but you can bet I will be back out there tomorrow.

Hey Rybus9, that’s one more of us and one less of them.

There are many people here who would happily unlearn the ability to ride a unicycle just so they can re-experience the joy of going from 10yard rides to 100yard rides.

It is, quite simply, the closest to flying we’re ever likely to experience.

Good to have you.
