Since my unicycle hiatus will continue for 6 more weeks....6 looong
weeks of looking at my shiny new trials uni, unable to ride it, I have
resolved to gather my money and for starters, buy a new seat.

Is there any cheaper alternative to the top-of-the line Kris Holm seat?
Or should I just bite the bullet and save up.

Also, how long did it take you guys to learn a 180 unispin? Was it hard
or relativly easy? It's the first trick I want to learn :D

I found that the 180 unispin was quite hard to learn.  But all tricks
are hard for me to learn:D

It took me 3 days, and I practiced for several hours each day before I
finally did one, then I lost them for about a month, and then I had to
practice a lot more to get them consistant.

If you do a search on the forums and on youtube you will find several
tutorials that would really help you.

Might as well add another question while I'm at it.

Can I take the seat off of my Torker and just put the KH on?
Or will other things need to be bought as well?

(Sorry to sound like a forum newbie but I'm basically a unicycle newbie
too)

Yes I've watched the tutorials and I have read about doing one, but
reading and watching is far from doing, but I KNOW that I will be
practicing hours a day for the first few weeks when I can unicycle
again, so I am not discouraged.

Well... the Nimbus seats are like the KH seats just without the
removable covers.

I would still go for the KH, because its easier to upgrade to a CF base
later

if you have a DX you don't need a seatpost, if you have an LX or CX or
AX then you do.

No. You will need a new seatpost in 25.4 like this one:

180 spins arnt to hard. Strang and hard at first but it just takes some
getting use to.

Just to clear things up, Torkers *are* 25.4mm but as mornish said - the
DX post will work fine with the KH seat however the others wont because
there is a different bolt pattern on those.

This is what I was going to say.

The Torker DX uses a standard Velo base, just like the KH uni, so if
you have a DX uni, you can just swap the seats. The Torker LX and all
other types have the miyata style seat, which is a different bolt
pattern than the Velo base, and it wont fit.

I have both downstairs, and havent really compared the two side by side
yet, but there might be a way to make a Miyata style seat fit to a KH
post. Though that might be too much work to be worth it.
