My First Unicycle

Hello,

Looking to buy my first unicycle. I kinda like the Miyata 24". Now, I’m a big
guy (6’0" 210 lbs), and I’m worried that the seat might not be
high/adjustable enough.

I’ve heard smaller wheels are easier to learn on. Well, what is “smaller”? 16"?

Anyone know the difference between Miyata’s standard and deluxe models? The
deluxe has a “seat post extension” but I don’t know how it’s used. Does it raise
the seat higher?

Anyone have anything good/bad to say about the Miyata? I kinda like the seat
with its protectors, since I’ve slammed the seat down a lot when trying to learn
on other people’s unis.

I bought a 24" Miyata two months ago and I absolutely love it. Even a novice can
tell it is a well engineered machine. I am 6’1" and 205 so we are about the same
size. You will need the extension (which comes with the deluxe.)

I think that 16" wheels are generally for kids. I have heard that learning
tricks on a 20" is easier, but I am having a blast trying to learn to new stuff
on my 24".

If you can afford it, I don’t think you can go wrong with the 24" Miyata. jd
