Hey, just wondering what tire pressure and seat height you should have while street unicycling.

lol really depends on your height weight and what you like, play around with it. I keep changing my seat hight these days, but i've become happy with my tyre pressure (finally) just mess around and find out

Lol, I mean shouldn't your legs be bent to some degree, as opposed to freestyle where your legs are almost straight. And with tire pressure, shouldn't your tire be somewhat squishy so that you can jump higher.

My tire pressure depends on what I'm doing... If I decide to do any drops, I raise it.

When I'm just riding around in front of my house, I keep it really soft.

or it should be hard so you can jump off of big stuff.


anywhere between 15 - 20 psi should be fine if your around 110 pounds.
