what to buy

I’ve been unicycling for nearly a year now, and I think it’s time for a new uni,
and I’m trying to figure out what I should get. I’ve got a 24" Schwinn, and a
26" homemade. I’m somewhere between a level 2 and 3 unicyclist at the moment.

I figure 20" is the way to go for learning tricks, and such. Everybody and their
brother has told me Miyata is the way to go, and they’re probably right. I’d
just like to hear what the pro’s and con’s are of the major brands are.

I’ve been working on climbing stairs, and such, and will probably continue with
that, so I don’t know how much of an issue wheel strength is. I’ve got the
one-footed idle down, and am working on one-footed riding, and hopefully gliding
some time soon, so I’m sure a flat crown would be most helpful.

I guess at this point, I’ve really been looking between the Semcycle XL, and
Miyata standard. I found it an interesting feature that the semcycle xl could be
expanded to 2 wheels, though, I don’t know how far off I’d be from trying that.

I appreciate any advice, and further description anyone can give me about the
various mid to high end unicycles out there.
