20" Trials, Weeeeeee!

Got my new Summit 20 the other day.

On the very first session (with some simple advice from a kid) I was
able to ride Seat on Stomach / Seat out Front for the first time in my
life. (wobbly, but still in the W column). This is the only thing
keeping me from level 3.

Also hopped all the way up flight of 7 stairs on second attempt.

Great workout. After last night's 30 minutes of boinging around  in
front of my house, I could feel the Abs. Sweating like a spinkler.

Great Fun.:D

Sounds like you are really going to enjoy your new Summit 20".  Congrats
on hopping up the 7 steps.   That is incredible, at least to me!!!

Congrats!  

Did you buy one of the "on sale" Summits?  On my new Summit, it's taken
me two days of effort just to get where I can hop up three steps and
ride out of it.

I'm thinking maybe it's a defective unit, and I need to send it back to
John Drummond.  I noticed that UniBrier's Summit also goes up stairs
much better than mine does. :D

Thanks for the heads-up Tom.  I will make sure and specify a "stairs"
model when I order my next unicycle from John! :D

This could be misconstued. Understand that I hopped up 7 stairs
one-at-a-time, not all 7 in one magnificient leap.

Yes, I got the on-sale Summit. But you must ask for the "Weeeeee"
upgrade. They install it free in Georgia.

I will not buy one, I will not buy one, i will not buy one.... yea keep
saying that you may soon believe it.:D   Hmmm were can I hide that for a
while so my wife doesn't see it?  I am going to have to get a lot better
before I can justify another uni purchase.  Wait a minute, I need some
140 cranks fo my KH24, hmm wouldn't it be smarter to buy the Summit for
the small difference in price, and get a Kick ***trials Uni at a great
price.  Get the behind me devil.:D

If you're going to get cranks anyway, it only makes sense to buy the
Summit NOW and split the shipping charge between the two. You're
actually SAVING yourself $$.

So a Trials unicycle makes it much easier to hop around and up steps? I
have me a probable freestyle and it sucks for it.

I need a new unicycle, maybe I should look into the Summit:D
