Hey Guys,

I was thinking about trying on a unicycle for size. I know absolutely nothing about unicycles other than if two wheels are fun, imagine what I can do on one. What size would I need? I am 6 foot tall. Where does one buy a unicycle...I have never seen one around this area. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Get a unicycle with a 26" wheel. I have a Pashley Muni and I love it. We have unicycles at our bicycle shop in Wisconsin, otherwise you can order them on the web at places like unicyclesource.com

Hope this helps!

hey steele


how is you, glad to see uni-newbies

anyway, i<ve heard that the best size wheel to learn on for someone your stature would be a 24 inch, but now your choice of size would depend largely on the type of riding you wish to do.

i do some mountain unicycling, the best tyre for this sport would be a 26 inch, you could still learn on it, it's not that bigger than a 24 inch.

but if you want to do trials and freestyling and stuff like that, a 20 inch might b better, it's a bit smaller but you should still b able to learn on it....i'm 6 feet tall too, and learned on a 16 inch.


but i think the best syze is 26 inch, it goes faster and you ca still do some trials with it, it's a bit harder, but still possible.



anyway, i can't tell you more


but you can go see these sites:

unicyclesource.com
unicycling.com
muniac.com
and maybe unicycle.org


that is all
