I have had a small unicycle for a while and just recently got back into it
I can ride forward fairly well, and am looking to learn to idle next and then maybe some basic tricks
I’m about 6’3 and 11 stone
I found these unicycles, wonder what you guys think will be the best
Never heard of the Indy before but sice it’s the only one w/ splined hub & cranks that seems to be the best choice of the 3. I’d want to know what spline interface it has (looks like ISIS but I count only 10 splines, I thought ISIS had 11)
The unicycle I have atm is tiny and a bit bent it’s taken a beating but did well for 40 quid. I’m sure ita smaller then 16 it is tiny, that’s why I wanted something a bit bigger and think I want to do some basic tricks
For starting out and what I’ll be doing I’m sure all of them will be fine probably, guess I can look at something bigger and stronger if I actually keep at trickss and stuff
Then you’ll be wanting a 26” muni and then a 29” or 36” to ‘‘ride the lights’’
You know You Can Never Have Too Many Unicycles
My first uni had a banana seat. I had to put red tape on the front so I knew which way was forwards as the pedals kept coming off. It’s got lollipop cranks and the guy in the b*ke shop in Chester must have laughing his head off when he sold it me. I could have got a Club uni for much less but I didn’t know about unicycle.com 3 years ago.
If you stay w/ unicycling you prob will end up w/ a bunch of unis of all types, but if budget is an issue you want to do it smartly. I’d save my money and get the best I could afford of my favorite riding style.
If you don’t know what that is yet (watching lots of vids helps), you can’t go wrong w/ a club for basic riding and learning some tricks, or similar uni. True the ISIS cranks/hub on the Indy might not actually be that strong, and the rest of the uni could be crap.
Taller people tend to prefer larger unis, so abcd, if you havn’t gotten one yet, consider a 24.
20 better maneuverability, slightly easier to ride and mount for most, most tricks are easier, good for light trials.
24 better cruising, faster, roles over bumps better so good for light Muni
