I’m going to get this unicycle soon, but from the picture on unicycle.com it looks rather short. Is that just because the seat post is all the way in, or should I get a seat post extension? If so, is the KH 350mm one the right kind?
I’m 6’3" so I just wanted to make sure it wouldn’t be to short. Oh, and I am intending on using it for trials
Edit: Oh, and also, how strong is this uni? Does anyone have it?
i have the same uni just with a profile set up. if you are 6’3" i would guess you are pretty heay, so i would go with the profile set up. i would guess you would bend the suzue hub pretty easy.
Actually I only weigh 156 lbs. so I don’t know if that makes a big difference but…
Wow, thats a big price jump for the profile If I was going to spend that much I’d get a KH20
I can’t answer your question about the post length. But, I would like to suggest looking into this cycle instead:
It is very similar to the Yuni, but with a better hub. It’s also quite a bit cheaper.
One other thing, remember to order though this link:
It helps support the unicyclist.com site.
Is the nimbus stronger than the Yuni? That was the other one I was thinking of getting, but I thought that the Yuni was better
If the nimbus is better I’d be glad to get it instead
go with a kh!!! you will destroy the nimbus and the yuni really fast. or at leats i did.
I got myself a United. I think that the nimbus is as good or better than the YUni, and since it’s cheaper, it should be good.
On my United, I’ve bent 2 sets of cranks. that’s too many. However, I haven’t bent the hub at all, so I’m not sure that would be a problem. I haven’t seen any square taper cranks that are stronger than the hub, so you should be ok. However, I think you would be a lot happier with the KH. In my case I chose the United because-
-the frames on the nimbus and YUni bash my calves when I hop. This is probably a technique issue, but i didn’t like it.
-I had no money for a KH, and I REALLY needed a uni, becuase all I had was a 26" Sun. That’s not exactly the best for trials.
I would have liked to get a KH but it was a bit out of my price range
I went for the nimbus since it was cheaper and seemed to be pretty strong from the reviews.
I was in the same situation as you when it comes to trials, since the only other uni I have is a KH24 (which is rather big and heavy )
Plus for Christmas I got a cool trials setup with a ramp and such so now I just need to get the nimbus
