help me diagnose this problem

I'm having a problem with my 24 inch Torker highlighter. Recently, the tire started feeling really squishy, no matter how high I put the pressure and I was having to fight twice as hard to keep the uni from getting out from under me. Since the tube had a slow leak anyway and the tire was bald, I just went and got a new tube and tire, thinking that whatever was wrong would be corrected, but it wasn't. Same problem. Any suggestions?

first thing that comes to me is check your bearings and make sure they are not giving out when your riding

THe wheel isn't wobbly at all by the way.

Check your uni for any loose parts.
Cranks, bearings, seat, spokes, seat post, etc...

I'll bet on one of the first two.

You do know that higher pressure results in a twitchier/more sensitive ride right?
New slicker tire + higher pressure (maybe + a lack of current riding?) = squirrelly unicycle.

Pedels?
R = Right. And when R is no right it's wrong.

My bet would be on your spokes needing tightening.
