Ok, I’ve got two questions - anyone has an opinion or three, toss them
Background - I purchased a 20" Torker last summer to learn on. Now
that I’m doing pretty good with it, I find that just peddling 1/4 mile
or so tires me out pretty badly. I need a bigger wheel!
I’m not well heeled, but I found a couple affordable on Unicycle.com -
A Sun 28", a Sun 26", and a United 26". Neither seem as nice as the
Torker, but both are affordable and would let me ride a mile or so (I
think!) without being exhausted when I get there. I plan to do no
trials or anything like that, but will have to put up with rough roads
and things. Basically it will be used for transportation to and from
the local market, to and from work on occasion, etc. Street and
sidewalk travel only, no cross country, no drops, no tricks, etc.
Question 1 - Does anyone have any experience with either of these
brands and if so, are they any good? (Technically, that was two
questions, but please ignore that fact.)
Question 2 - The difference between the 26" and 28" (besides the 2
inches) is ??? I know the 28" will be a bit faster with the same
crank size, but is it more difficult to ride or control or ???
And my lovely wife is letting me keep the Torker, too! Isn’t she
wonderful? She’s got my vote for wife of the year!
Thanks in advance for your help and opinions!
