That’s the general consensus, and I personally think it’s a great unicycle. You have to pick the wheel size you want epending on your height and what type of unicycling you plan to do, but for beginners I think it is an excellent choice.
just try to make sure when, or if, you cut it with a hacksaw, you try to keep the cut clean. flat, and smooth, then kinda smooth it up when your done, so you dont scratch up and ruin the inside of your seatpost =p
My cut was anything but flat, but its still ok, as long as the bottom of the seatpost dosen’t hit the bottom or stick out of the frame its good.
I guess I could borrow a grinder and flatten it right off.
For heaven’s sake use a pipe cutter. Your hardware store, your LBS and your plumber all have one. In my experience, unless you are a total sasquatch, you’ll need to cut doen the seatpost. You may also want to have a file handy to smooth things out, no matter which tool you use to cut the tube.
My vote, BTW is for the LX because that is what I learned on.
i learned on a 20" cyclepro. i didn’t think to cut the seatpost so it was almost touching the tire when i started. then, of course, i raised it a couple of inches because i got better at it. i’ve still got my cyclepro but i’ll probably need a new one soon for trials.
im only bout 5’10" and can have the post above the frame by an inch or two, but cut it about an inch while trying crankflips(someday ) so aS TO NOT NUT MYSELF too bad, and its like PERFECT!! at that height. i do have really long legs though.
