Exclamation need help with choosing a unicycle which i can do tricks with



hi unicyclists im looking for a unicycle that i can do lots of tricks on, be able to bunnyhop, do unispins, ride down stairs and be able to use it as a freestyle unicycle at like a sk8 park. I dont know what size wheel to get, a 20 or 24" inch. Out of these unicycles which one do i get?---------

-trial unicycle
-off road unicycle
-MUnicycle
-heavy duty unicycle

If u go on youtube type in "insane unicycling stunts" and it will come up (the first one). Its by "Vidcrew". Watch that. Thats the unicycle I want but i dont know what type it is and how many inches the wheel is. (my youtube name is "krando00".

These are my decisions as many others would say their own.
1) Nimbus ISIS unicycle.
2) KH 07 29 Green with envey.
3) KH 29 XC 2007 model. (well at least until the 08 model comes out.)
4) Torker Unistar DX 20-inch Trials. (unless you find them in Oz.)

In that case i suggest a Nimbus ISIS Trials. $340 and just as good as a KH. Except needs KH Moment cranks.

I have bought numerous things from them and no problems yet. Order in the morning and it will be at your door the next day.

Because the KH moment cranks will handle drops like this.

Kris Holm Moment Cranks. They're $130 but they won't bend, brake, twist if you want to do grinds, drops, etc. I just got mine in today for my 26" Nimbus ISIS Muni. Now i can go proper riding........... soon as i'm good enuff

You should most definitely get a Nimbus ISIS trials and upgrade the cranks to KH Moments. You won't have to pay full price for the KH cranks(just to let you know). Thats what I have and if I had the choice again I would do the same thing.

The reason you need to upgrade the cranks is cause the cranks that come on the uni aren't very strong. You'll break them and then have to pay full price for KH's.
