Bike Vs Coker Vs 24" Muni
Im getting into distance unicycing but i only have a 16" learner and a 24" muni. Obviously the 16" is out of the question but the 24" still isnt up to much.
So, how big is the difference between a 24" with 170mm cranks and a 36er with 150s or 125mm cranks?
Also, how does a 36er compare to the speeds of a normal bike?
Thanks for anything you can tell me!

A decent rider on a 36" on uphills can keep up with bicyclists who are moderately weaker. On the flats, he can keep up with bicyclists who are significantly weaker. On downhills, he can't keep up.

yup, basically there is no comparison between a 24 and a 36, two completely different beasts.
Last year I was averaging 20km/h with my 36er with 127s, I was not much slower with 150s. Last time I rode with bikes was the Waskesiu MS bike tour and I finished before the majority of the bikers but I was in much better shape than the average rider. If I was on a bike I could have easily took an hour off my time. I rode the last 20km alternatively passing and being passed by a lady who was 68 years old (who also obviously finished before the majority of the riders).
