the Unicycle is my avatar…It works amazing… Rode for a wile…It hasent ever broken. It holds up really amazing for trials and works almost as well for MUni. I ordered it from allunicycles.com, it came with easy instuctions. It was 300 bucks at the time, it has a double bolt seatpost clamp. A 19 or 20 inch wheel. Very sturdy. I would definently recomend
do you notice the deference between a 20" and a 19" wheel? I have considered getting a nice nimbus uni but I feel the smaller wheel will be harder to control. I started on a 24" torker but I tried a 20" before I started and felt “more uneasy” on it. I’m not a solid rider yet but I’m learning slowly and I feel I need to upgrade my uni if I ever want to do better.
Usually there isn’t much of a difference between 20" and 19" (basically the choice of tyres).
For a beginner, it can feel less intimidating to start on a small wheel (20") rather than a bigger one. However, small wheels requires less efforts to move/get on but with the drawback of more frequently bitting (pedal impact in the shinbone).
On the other hand, a bigger wheel provides more momentum when getting on helping to understand the proper gesture. But it requires a bit more effort to get in motion and the speed (distance per revolution) can be intimidating at first.
A thing that helps is when you have somebody to train with and/or somebody with another size of unicycle to compare.
apparently I am the only person in the whole city of asheville that has ever tried to unicycle. that is probably a little facetious, but we have three juggling clubs and a huge performance art community; yet I cannot find one other person with so much as a starter uni, it makes me sad to live here.
I am in the middle of two sizes, bigger than a 20 and smaller than a 24. so I got the larger one as I want to use it for transportation and the area is very rough and hilly. though I love my torker, the more I try the more I feel I made the wrong decision on the size; and being as I am very poor I can’t really afford to get another uni.
asheville hosts a muni festival once a year at the same time as our local burning man, despite this fact I am all alone here. after a comprehensive search of the internet, and this site, I have found nobody.
