Last time I was wondering about getting 165mm cranks and after everybody’s views and my progress with the 36" it became clear it was a waste of money.
Now that I have a wife and kid, birthdays have become important again and with that, asking for presents (normally I’d just buy whenever I wanted something). So I’ve been wondering if maybe I should get a 24" uni.
The unis I have are : 19" trials, 20" freestyle, 20" freewheel, 26" KH Muni, 26" Hatchet, 29" Muni, 32" Nimbus, 36" Nimbus Night Rider Pro and some 20" trainer thingie I learned on and keep for my kids once they get the taste for it.
This year there was the NKE (Dutch Championships Unicycling) and for most competitions, a 24" was required. Only for 5 and 10km runs the wheelsize was free choice. I didn’t compete, just watched what it was about.
I also rode 10km with my 19" trials two times, but I don’t like having to spin like crazy all the time. A 24" might be easier for that. Still I’d use the bigger sizes for longer distances.
My wife and kid are from Thailand and I go on holiday there every year. It would be nice to have a uni there too, even though it is so hot. A 24" seems nice enough for exploring outside of the big cities and small enough to take onto an airplane in a suitcase.
Then lastly if I were to buy a 24" should I take one with knobby tire like muni or with a road tire.
The sizes I don’t intend to buy ever are 27.5" or 28". They are too close to the 26" and 29" I already have, which are fine sizes.
