i’ve been waiting until after i audition and compete on violin and viola for some summer programs to actually get a unicycle (lack of time and i don’t want to break anything like my fingers), but i have been researching unicycling for quite a while now.
i went into a bike shop with my friend last time we went flatland bmxing, and the shop owner wanted me to get a unicycle with training wheels. i think, because it seems most people don’t take too long to learn to ride, and i wouldn’t want to become dependent on those training wheels, i’m going to skip that route.
i’ve been seriously considering a United tuni. it’s certainly more expensive than a beginner’s uni (and much less expensive than a professional uni), but i usually try to get things that will last a long time. it’s on www.unicycle.com if you’re interested. it’s the united trials uni with a myata seat . . . i think
one major complaint with that uni is the cranks, so maybe i would have to order it with a different pair
let me know what you think of it
