Conditions of Use
I only know about 5 people who can ride a unicycle, so unicycles are pretty rare. They are nothing like bikes. They don’t have handle bars, two wheels, or brakes, so you definitely need to wear a helmet if you are a beginner. I have known how to ride a unicycle for six months now, so I have already learned how to properly land on a fall and balance.
When you first start riding, you lean forward too much, or you lean backwards too much. If you really learn how to ride it, you would be in a straight line with your unicycle. Your posture might even get better by riding it, because your back has to be straight.
Just like bikes, unicycles have different sizes of wheels. The smallest wheel is an 18- inch. I guess I grew a little, so I am now a 20-inch. There are also different thicknesses of the wheels. Mountain unicycles have thicker wheels so then it is easier to balance on the dirt on trails. The skinnier wheels are for going farther maybe… The bigger your wheel is, the easier it is to go farther without getting tired.
If you do gymnastics, and you can balance well, you would be great at unicycling. I find it really fun, and I think you would too.
