Do we ride our unicycle everyday? Something to consider.
Really? every 6 months? I still have the stock tires on all the unis I bought. Now that I have a family I only ride once a week, but I used to ride all the time. In 4 years I've never replaced a tire and I fixed 3 tubes on different unis.
Sometimes I just take off the cranks and put them on at a different angle from the wheel, so when I mount I don't always do it at the same spot on the tire. It is easier than taking off the tire and turning that around.
