What size wheel?

I am thinking of getting a unicyle for Muni and commuting purposes. Should I go
for a 24" 26" or 28"? I have tryed a 24" and 26" (liked both of them) Which
would be better in the long run? I will only be able to afford one other wise
the solution is simple! Just buy all three.

If you had to prioritise them what would the order be? And how about if I drop
in a giraffe as well? Where would that fall on a scale of importance?

James Gifford suggested this idea to me. I think its a great idea if you can
find the parts. My main problem would be finding an axle. If you can find the
axle/hub unit the rim, tyre etc should not be a problem. You could swap pedals
and cranks if you wanted to as well.

It is probably best to learn on a 20" if you ever want to do serious stunts.
They are a lot more responsive and I imagine it would be harder going from a
slugish 26" down to a 20" rather than the other way around.
24/26" are nicer to ride if you are looking for smoothness though. A lot easier
on grass too.
