Smile 26" or 29" for commuting, and offroad?

Hey everyone,
I was wondering what size unicycle i should go for? I am going to buy a KH unicycle but i was wondering if the 26" wheel is better or 29". i am 13 so either way i have time to get use to it because i have road a 20" nimbus trial for 3 years. But i want a bigger, nicer, and faster unicycle to get around and to go offroad when i need to. what do you guys think? Thanks

Well, how tall are you? How rough is the terrain, how long the distances you want to go?

I also think you're in the wrong forum. I think your question has been answered 1000 times already. I think you need to use the search feature to search the proper forum for unicyclingand you'll find the answers you need.

I think I need to pay my cell phone bill. I think it's time to put new tires on the car. I think I should hit the gym after work. I think my cat is wonderful.

That's about it right now.

Wow - that's like slapping a puppy. Maybe it had to be done, but you don't feel very good afterwards.
