trials uni 16 or 20in?

im a beginner-ish, wanting to do trials and freestyle stuff. i have a sun uni, which has worked fine, but from what i hear, its not gonna be what i want if i get into this. so i thought i would get a nimbus 16in trials or 20in trials. i want the 20 but the price is a bit much, im 15... so income aint huge. Im 5 feet 5 inches about so will i be unhappy if i get th 16 inch?

Yes.

16" is for little kids. You need a 20" trials for sure. Save up if you have to, a 16" is a bad idea.

Welcome to the forums.

20". For sure. it's faster, and not a little kid's uni.

You should go for a 20". But I also have a custom ISIS nimbus trials 16" and its really fun to ride! It's great for learning new tricks on and not just a little kids uni, i rekon. I'm 5 8" ish.
