View Full Version : What's Safe?
2004-05-26, 07:11 AM
So, I have a Torker CX with a 24" wheel. I'm wondering how good it is for learning tricks, as learning to ride seriously bent the wheel (but I trued it, it's cool). Now I'm moving on and learning to idle and it looks like it's bending again. I'm thinking I shouldn't do hops on this and if that's the case I put to you the question: what kind of unicycle should I get for street and trials type tricks?
Thanks a bunch

If you're not looking to spend a lot of money try the Nimbus 20 inch trials (http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=744) uni. I'm sure it's more sturdy than what you're riding now, plus it would be easy to learn tricks on.

That looks nice. When I have 170 bucks I may look into it, but I've heard mixed things about Nimbi (us-i plurals are fun). Aslo I'm bidding on that old semcycle deluxe. I'm assuming with some new pedals and cranks it could be a good beginning trials uni. I hope.

anything with a 20" tire. 20" tires are stronger because they are smaller so they will last longer when trying to learn tricks. also if you buy a 20" bmx wheel its probably unbreakable becasue its made to take jumps and drops.
