Just wondering about the wheel size of the UC as the seat post is up to its max

Feels OK once i figured out how to position my butt in the seat fr balance( i can see the one liners already)

Hi, its good to hear about another learner. I am much the same as you then. Keep at it is the only advice, it does get you there eventually, I promise.... you can always get a longer seat post though, I did... !!
Confidence is a key word in unicycling, another key word is perseverance, it gets better each time you clamber onto the saddle, however it fits.. !!

Hi Pinoclean
Any names of contacts would be great
Maybe to hang and cruz with

PS Freight to Darwin is a bit of a nightmare
Cheers Gaz
