I just heard about the hobby/sport of unicycling a few weeks ago. Up until then I am sorry to say I was one of those people who thought unicycling was just for clowns But now I know better
One of my friends friend came to visit us with her uni. She told me all about the different tipes of unicycling like muni and trials. It really blew my mind.
I had a go on her uni (20" basic learner) in our tight corridor. In about 5x20 min practice sessions I managed to do 3-4 revs unsupported wich I am pretty proud of From what I have read deciding to go for it and learn to ride is a big part of the challenge and the fact that I am usually way to stubborn for my own good makes me think that I am really going to get the hang of this thing.
So the next step for me is to buy my first uni
I don't want it to be the most basic of basic unis. What I want to be able to do in time is to ride my uni wherever I would normally walk. In and out of town. So I presume I want a fairly big wheel. But isn't 24" the biggest that is recommended for beginners? I also want a comfy seat because my friends uni seat started to feel a little uncomfortable even after that little riding. I Think going for a cheap uni is just not going to pay off for me. It cost the same to post a bad one and a good one home to Iceland (a lot!) so I am probably better off getting a decent one right from the start.
Ok to sum it up. Do you guys have any suggestions on which uni would be best for me for town commuting and basic off road riding (of course not just yet).
oops, almost forgot. My inseam is about 34".
Bonus question: what about different crank lengths?
Thanks a lot for any help or advise you can give me, I really appreciate your help
