Cant decide what to buy

A MUni or trials cycle. Is there some kind of inbetween I can get? From what I read, muni on a 20 inch is a bear, can you pull off some small trials on a 24?

depends what you think you'll be doing most....but if you think you'll be doing about the same amount of each, get a 24" MUni.

I've never done it, but Josh somethin who posts here as unibrow does Street/Trials on a 24" MUni, and he's really really good. he can do a crankflip, and a 360 unispin, and that stuff....yeah. so, they might take more practice maybe, but they can be just as successful.

My brother, MUniMac, does all his trials on a KH24. We competed in O.U.I. where my brother took second place long jump, 60 inches
,first place high jump, 60 Cm's, and first place in trials, 23/33, at the Sport level. I guess you can do some good trials on a 24".

Also Kris Holm, for a long time, I'm not sure if he still does, did trials on a 24" and I saw some video's where he was doing trial type stuff on a 26"!

I ride a KH20 05 but can jump on my brothers KH24 just as well as my 20". The only thing I find more difficult on a 24" is to ride skinnies because of the longer cranks.

24" is the best size if you're doing any offroading at all
especially if you're not too serious about trials
i use my KH24 '05 for everything
it rocks!!

It probably doesn't matter which one you get because you'll almost certainly end up getting another one anyway.

I do trials on my MUni. I'm not that good, but as far as I can tell the only problem with my MUni is it's heavier than a trials. I like it for street though, it's cool.

that's true, so the real question is, which one can you live without longer? (;

I think im going to get the KH24 05.

Is it normal to want a sceond unicycle after a month of riding?

I managed to find a ton of money in all my hiding spots as a grew up. I have like 475 now, hehe. Hoping to win $150 in a logo competition, my main source of income. Ooo yah, parents are having a graduation (8th grade) party for me so that will get me some money. Lots of family coming. I'll have my new uni in no time.

Sounds about right.
I've got 3 after riding since January.
And I still haven't got anything for distance riding.
