pertnear everyone needs to cut down their seat-post. A hack saw or pipe cutter works best.

It is pretty easy to do but you should cut it longer than you think is needed at first, put it on the uni and see if it works then cut it again if needed, that way you don't accidentally cut to much off.


Welcome to the forums and have fun on your new wheel!

yes it is easy to cut the seat post all you need is a hacksaw and file and a couple of minutes a vise helps but is not needed

Hi, my friend that I got into unicycling bought a torker LX 20" and it is a great learner unicycle. Today we rode around town for the first time and we got loads of crazy look My friend is like 5'10" and he had to cut the 400mm seat post.

I have the Nimbus isis trials and I have and I have beat the heck out of it. I also upgraded the cranks to KH moments and if you want this for your second uni I would suggest doing the same.
