Okay, as of last night, I could finally ride my 24" unicycle without
falling over. I screamed with delight. Of course, I don’t want to stop
there. I think I love unicycle more than my mountain bike! LOL.
Soo… I want to eventually go off-road. Right now, I have no idea how
to hop. I think I should practice that first before heading out for the
trails. Since I don’t want to practice hop on my United unicycle (correct
me if I am wrong, this $100.00 unicycle was for designed for beginners and
probably could not stand to hopping pressure), should I buy a 20 inch
unicycle and practice hopping on that?
Second question: I’m looking for the best bang for the buck. I was
considering Pashley 26-inch with Miyata at Unicycle.com. It sells for
$429.00. I plan to go off-road 50% of the time, and spend the other 50% on
road pavement. Or should I buy the budget-minded Hunter frame that sells
for $679.00? I “want” to buy a unicycle that can last a long, long time. I
plan to use it a lot. I don’t want to buy a cheap-o unicycle that will
break down easily. For most things out there, you get what you pay for.
So, I wonder if I should go with Hunter over Pashley. Any advice on that?
Eventually, I would like to do drop offs from ledges (not sure how high I
want to drop from yet)
I won’t buy any unicycles from Unicycle.com until they start to sell
the red or blue Miyata seats. I won’t buy that unattractive lime green
