Get the 20", you'll regret the 16" in like 10 minutes after getting it.

I didn't even know they had 16" trials til' now...probably because I
would never consider getting a 16"...

EDIT: i might get like a 12" or smaller just for the novelty of
it...with a flat crown so i can coast and stuff+it's not totally
useless...

I'm not sure that would manuver any better than a 20"-which can turn on
a dime+has a higher to pedal hop........and possibly more spring in the
tire...and rides about 25% faster...
the most a 16" would help with hopping might be a slightly decreased
weight...and that really would be less than the difference between a
torker dx and a KH...

Do not get a 16" unicycle.  They're made for little kids.

I'm your age, about 5 feet tall, and I can ride any size of unicycle in
production.  Don't worry about your height - get the 20".

You will utterly regret getting a 16".  Look at pictures of any trials
rider out there.  Do you see any of them riding 16 inchers?  No.

Post by mous » Tue, 18 Sep 2007 04:59:39

I ride trials with a 24" and a low seat and find that when I use a 20"
of my friends it seems very easy.  This is likely due to the weight
difference.  I'd suggest the 20" because the 16" is very small for
someone who isn't 10 or under.

I started with that one.  I really liked it and a lot of my friends are
all learning on it now and it's holding up great.  I've only done a 1
foot drop on it but it's real sturdy.  Another good choice is the
Torker LX.

that is a horrible unicycle for trials.

Its a learner freestyle one.

any of the nimbus trials are pretty good.

what's you budget?

the nuimbus street unicycle with KH moment cranks is great.
