Should I get a unicycle help me

Hey, I have been thinking of getting a unicycle for a while now. This christmas my friend got one and i am starting to get good at it but i dont know if i should get one. i already ride bikes, skateboard, do aggressive inline, and ride dirtbikes. Well now its your turn to think. should i get a unicycle? Is it fun? The reason i am asking is because the unicycle is $89 and i will only have $12 left so pleaze help me and awnser back soon. because im clueless

Although you are going to get a slightly biased response from this forum, I say definitely. You may or may not know what can be done on a unicycle, if not check out and look for the U2 trailer. has some good vids. Search for either “Ryan Atkins gallery” or “Kevin Macmullins (maybe Mc…) gallery”. Also checkout Check the gallery, Shaun Johanneson’s is on page 1 or 2. Check some of the Japanese freestyle vids in a thread on this page. That covers most of the styles. Maybe someone else can post more links. I never knew what kinda junk could be done till I found this site. You won’t regret it. This is a relatively new sport and you could be pushing the limits very quickly depending on your learning curve.

Make the right choice,


You won’t regret it.

It will make you better at many other sports.

Somehow, I think you have the ability to earn more money if you really need to.

yes. watch this

and this

definitely buy one

Get one! You won’t regret it. $90 (I assume US) isn’t that much for a new uni… my new KH Trials cost $450


Forget it.
DON’T get a unicycle–It is the worst thing I have ever done. It takes forever to learn, and you fall down a lot, and everyone calls you names like clown.
Even if you ever do learn to ride, the trauma of freemounting is just around the corner to spoil the fun.
Then you end up spending a ridicoulas amount of time at this website/forum asking about cranks or hubs. Before long, you’ll get sucked into pointless conversations at the Just Conversation forum.
You will dream of unicycling–literally, like everyone else here, when you sleep, you will have dreams that involve the unicycle.
Then you’ll want to branch out–you will wonder about getting a coker, a muni, a freestyle, etc.
Others will see how well you are doing, and suddenly, two or more of your friends will get unicycles. And their lives will sink into the black hole of the one-wheel, as yours likely shall, as mine already has, because I had the insane, the totally insane notion that I might give the unicycle a try.
I have been going to my local chapter of U.A. (Unicyclists Anonymous). It has not worked. I’m already hooked…
Save yourself. Just walk away.

JUST KIDDING!!!:slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
Nothing in the world beats those first few feet of riding unassisted! You’ll see! Just get one, and you will soon see, it is like flying! GO FOR IT!

What a place to ask this question!

Unicycling is one of the most fun hobbies you can think of. It is a
fantastic feeling to ride unsupported for the first time. And that is
only the beginning. You can learn all kinds of tricks, you can ride
long distances, or on rough terrain, or on a tree log, or you can jump
on a picknick table, and off it. You could juggle while on the uni. It
is a hobby with infinite possibilities, enough to last your whole

Go for it!

How many sports do you know where you get great satisfaction just doing the basics. If you never manage to do loads of tricks, so what? You will have fun just riding along.

They last for years anyway; you will get your moneys worth out of it.


If you only knew the power of the Dark Side!

Search your feelings…you know it to be true!

Give yourself to the dark side…It is unavoidable.
