Yep, we are a very nice and helpful bunch.
Also, once you get your uni, make sure the cranks and pedals are on the right side.
The R on the crank in pedal on the right side, the L on the cranks and pedals on the left side, or else you can warp the threading and ruin your pedals and/or cranks. It shouldn’t be two hard to find out the right side, most frame have the front clearly marked by a sticker, head badge, or from the seat clamp.
When riding, mount with your preferred pedal down, and then step onto it, holding onto a rail, or a wall/fence. Bring your other foot up, and either roll back a little, or roll forwards a little. You should have the pedals in a horizontal position, and either your left or right foot in the front.
Now, get yourself situated, make sure your not gonna be sitting on anything, so you gotta just gotta scoop it all to the front and out of the way. Just make sure your comfy.
Now you got yourself up and ready, remember to keep ALL of your weight on the seat, that is truly the key to unicycling. My girlfriend finally got all her weight on the seat, and ride better than ever, my friend just realized he wasn’t putting his weight on the seat, and now that he is, he can finally ride. Keeping the weight on the seat is CRUCIAL!
Sit up straight now, look straight ahead, down look down at the tire or your feet, just straight ahead. Take a breath, and pedal.
Most likely your gonna fall right off the bat, but dont worry, we all did, get up, get back on, and keep going.
You’ll be riding in no time! =p
