Just getting back into unicycling after 30 years and I’m looking at the Torker LX 24". I don’t think I’ll need a real heavy duty unicycle but would like the speed and lightweight of a unicycle like the LX–and it looks like the price is right.
Any suggestions or recommendations before my birthday gets here?
Re: Returning to unicycling
Glad to see your coming back into the sport after 30 years!
Yes, the 24" Torker LX sounds perfect for what you are looking for. It is a good unicycle at a very decent price. Some people might say that it sucks because it broke going off a 2ft drop, but that is because it is not designed for that. It is merely a unicycle designed for good ol’ riding, and freestyle too.
Also, you might want to post this again in Rec.Sport.Unicycling for more replies.
excellent choice…after 30 years seats have changed and the ones that come on the LX’s will feel like a couch.
I can see that after trying one at the bike shop. 1) I can still ride–which was what I wanted to check. 2) My original unicycle which my Dad got for me in 1961 was a 12" wheel pneumatic and had a leather derrailleur seat on it. I forgot the name of the guy in LA who made it but he was a pretty famous unicycle guy all the way back to the 20s…even built a one wheel motorcycle that you sat inside of back then. Looking forward to it.
