It’s been 9 months since I started unicycling, and now I’m completely absorbed in or perhaps addicted to it. Especially I love muni riding so much as there are always new challenges in my way.
I feel the world transforms into a play ground when I get on a unicycle. I never thought I could be into something this serious after becoming an adult. Now unicycling is huge part of my life, inseparable. Match made in heaven
To have close interaction in this community, I’d like to share my youtube channel link with you guys! I upload my practice videos daily. I’d appreciate it if you could give me advice or tips after viewing some videos in my channel to improve my riding. (For your information, muni riding is almost never known in my country yet.)
I’m seriously impressed with (and jealous of!) your unicycling abilities if you’ve only been riding 9 months. I started nearly 5 years ago and I’m nowhere near your level. I would love to be that good some day but can’t really see it happening. Did you do some similar sport before?
I love the way you do jumps and stairs etc on the 36" (terrifying!) - did you learn on a smaller / trials wheel first and then just try it on the big wheel?
Welcome to the forum! I visit family in Incheon when I get the chance and always try to find a way to ride or meet up with some riders out there when I go. The riders I’ve met there are always very welcoming. You would have enjoyed the Unicon there.
Thanks for your warm welcoming. To be exact, I started unicycling on the 13th of June, 2022 and since then I’ve been practicing literally every single morning and night.
First, I started on a 20 trials and moved up to a 24 standard. After learning basic tricks on 24, I began 24 muni. 36’s case, I think I got the hang of it naturally probably while practicing on a 24 standard and muni. Still a lot to learn and practice ,though.
As to your question about if I’ve ever done any sports like unicycling, my answer is yes. I’ve been skateboarding quite a while and I see a lot of similarities between these two sports!
You started nearly 4 years after me but you’ve done waaay more practice - that’s great dedication! I began on small roads and paths with a 24", but have been a very slow learner, partly because I don’t get much riding time. I then started using a 26" and later a 36". But I only really go forwards! Recently I’ve using a 20" wheel because we had a puppy who needed to go slower (my one ‘trick’ is riding with a dog on a lead ahead of me), but now she’s older and faster I’m back on the 24 or 26 again. But with a dog who stops unexpectedly it would be really helpful to know how to idle and hop, so I keep meaning to learn. Anyway, thank you for inspiring me to keep learning new stuff
Welcome to the Forum. I see your YouTube Channel, it’s great but your failture sound on the Muni…It’s the brake or some losse spokes? I don’t know it but the sound ring not so good on a Muni. When I ride my Munis then there siliece. but very nice that your ride the uni in South Korea.
Thanks for your encouraging comment. It motivates me to keep pushing myself. I like your lovely story that you are moving up in uni size as your puppy grows and want to learn idling to keep up with your puppy. It must be a special scene for your neighbors. If you have any pictures of you riding with your puppy on leash held by you, please share with me
I’ve not had anyone with me to take photos (although apparently we’ve appeared on TikTok thanks to the local kids!), but I’ve taken a 360 camera on a selfie stick a couple of times. Here’s a still with me on my 24" - we were riding a track through some woods which passed an abandoned factory.
