I have a weird urge to buy one and learn to ride. Anyone else own one? There are at least 5 kids in my neighborhood that ride them and I feel the need.

The larger the wheel, the easier it will be to learn.

The trials uni has a 19" tire (like a mod bike's rear tire). The frame is steel and the cranks are extra beefy. I beat my ankles and shins up trying to ride it.

I had that same urge and bought a cheapy Torker 20" unicycle. I learned how to go forward, kind of backwards, and hop around. It went on Craigslist 4 months later.

I posted a thread like this last year. Seems like the concensus is, don't bother unless you're going to dedicate the time.

I might someday.

My son's old roommate had one and was good at it. I fail to see a use for it as walking seems to work just fine and is a good deal safer.

Check CL, get one cheap so you won't be mad when you sell it for a loss.
