I'm no expert : P I've only been riding about 3 weeks, but I'm already doing quite well, and feel very comfortable on it. I can idle and ride backwards already, but that's on a 20"
I plan on getting a 36" in a year or so, not too soon. I already have a giraffe uni waiting for me in Atlanta when I get back to school : )
I've ridden that kinda milage on my single speed on the fixed gear side. It's not so bad as long as you pick a decent route with no huge hills.
My main use for the unicycle will be rails to trails type riding : ) so mostly nice and flat.
and yes, as people have mentioned, the best you can do luggage wise is a seatpost clamp bag.
I had a crazy Idea that I would put a seatpost mounted rack on the front and back, but I wouldn't know about knee clearance. I imagine it wouldn't work well. I'm probably going with a TT style bottle mount, and two seat bags, one up front, one behind, and a credit card to top that off ;-P
I've also checked out the unicycle forums of course, but I'm glad I posted here : )
