While visiting some friends nearby I had the opportunity to try to unicycle down a very steep hill. It is the biggest hill I have gone down so far on my unicycle. My friend lent me his GoPro camera and we made the video above.
Lately, I have been getting much more comfortable on my unicycle. It has a 20” wheel. A 20” unicycle wheel is best for training on, but they aren’t really super great to use for “Muni” (mountain unicycling) unless it is a very thick tire, or for ridding long distances. The smaller the wheel, the more you have to pedal. The one big advantage of a smaller wheel is that it is much more maneuverable. With my 20” unicycle I can turn a full circle in a small area that would be very difficult for a bigger unicycle wheel to do.
Like almost everything in the world, there are both advantages and disadvantages.
