I want to know what is best for stairs and hops ect. and a little bit of dirt but not alot in your opinion out of the few below. And tell me what you personally think about each one and if its worth the cost.

1.Nimbus 20-inch Freestyle Long Neck with Kovachi Wheel. Price: $267.00

2.Yuni 20-inch Freestyle 36-spoke. Price: $239.00

3.Nimbus II 20-inch Red Unicycle. Price: $147.00

4.Nimbus 20-inch Hookworm Freestyle. Price: $282.00

One of these will be my next unicycle and I want your opinion on which one will be the stongest and withsatnd the most and lightest ect. thanks


ALSO in your opinion can you hop higher with a skinny tire or a trial type tire?

that's 250 btw.

The unicycles you mentioned were all freestyle unicycles. For jumping, stairs and dirt you probably want a muni or a trials unicycle. The 20'' or 24'' torker dx is a great option for250$

you will be much happier if you just spring for the extra money for the dx. look on ebay, you can find them for around 225. That uni is not build for hops and drops, it is made for freestyle. Apparently it is a nice freestyle uni, but it is not made for what you want to do. Its non splined hub and alloy rim will not stand up to what you want to do.

I think that's a fine option. If you find yourself in need of a stronger hub/crankset then get the kh moments or the koxx-one set depending on where you live and if you like q-factor or not.
