The United 20-inch Trials with Profile hub goes for $579, figure in another $150 for the different frame + seat. Add cost of spokes and take away $5 for a different clamp. This saves me the trouble of building the wheel also.
Are Odyssey Twisted PC not plastic? I’d say you want the grippiest pedals you can get. Something with a large thin platform and metal pins or, failing that, studs. These will eat your shins for breakfast and spit in your eye just for the fun of it tho.
Do you get Semcycle XLW frames in 20"? I could only see 24"+ at unicycle.com. An alternative might be the 20" Nimbus II frame which also fits a Monty tyre. I think some of these will be making the trip over the pond to the US pretty soon. It’s got a flat crown and which will grip your feet much better than the smooth sem. The Nimbus is also about the right width for a Profile hub - I think the sem would need a good amount of pulling to fit but I’m sure unicycle.com can keep you right on that.
The Reeder handles are really good for hopping and jumping around - I’d recommend one for sure!
Also, how’s about some protection? Roach leg armour is great. 661 is almost as good - but not the plastic capped MTB ones. Just about anything else is pants (not very good).
I’ve riden BMX for quite a few years, so I have a set of XTRA skins that I were for leg protection. As far as pedals go… I’ve also got a set of S&M platform pedals which are similiar but a better quality that will most likely make the transfer. The Semcycle XLW is hard to spot because you have to choose the regular 20" Semcycle and there is a drop down menu to choose the 20" wide.

Forget getting a united. That was my original plan too. Youll end up
getting more for your money ifg you just buy a KH20. A good frame for the
united is going to go for way more than 150, polus a seat, youll end up
spending whatever you would on the KH20. So, in conclusion, just go with
the KH20. The end
