If you want to bunny hop on a road unicycle, be aware that a skinny
tyre increases the stresses on the cranks. I have bent a 150 mm
Bicycle Euro crank on a 28" road unicycle with a high-pressure 35 mm
tyre, and those were quite small hops (and I am about 72 kg). Bicycle
Euros are not expensive (in my opinion) and recommended for strength,
but I don’t think they come in 102 mm do they?
