Josue?

Are you okay? Why would you want heavy? I think we only use heavy unicycles
because they are strong. I don’t see where a heavy freestyle unicycle would help
otherwise. Give me light (but still strong)!

RE: what is better heavy or ligth uni.for freestyle

Regarding weight: I find that my heavy old Schwinn 20" is better for a few
tricks, esp. certain mounts, than my new and much lighter Torker 20". For
example, ‘suicide’ mounting is scary if the uni is so light that it falls
unpredictably, and that seems top happen with the Torker. I can suicide mount a
Schwinn (on sizes 20", 24") or my nearly-as-heavy 26" Semcycle, but that little
Torker is harder to fly onto.

It’s also a lot easier to kick-mount a non-Torker bc of the Torker seat – it
catches on your pant leg (it’s a softer rubber).

Otherwise, most tricks seem easier on the lighter model. – David Stone
