It kind of depends on what you want to do with it. If you focus mainly on tricks and riding over stuff, I recomend the 20. If you do some tricks but like riding around a lot as well or just like riding around, i recomend the 24 which will go faster than the 20. I recomend the isis as well. i have a 20 nimbus 2 isis which i pound the hell out of and i've had no problems with loose cranks or anything.

I don't blame you. I met my fiancee on Yahoo! Personals, although my best friend met his wife on Myspace. I've heard good things about Match.com, but only horror stories from Craigslist.

Dunno about the hub, but you should find one without a spare tire. My girl works out to keep hers away... wish I could say the same about myself.

Wow, rebuilt? You animal! It's a miracle how modern medicine can bring youth back to the human body.

Good luck with the hunt. Keep in touch!

Having an ISIS hub and crankset, unfortunately, are not guarantees that the next unicycle can withstand being run over. You might want to talk about it with her before buying a new one!

But didn't I hear that the new KH Ti hub emits gamma rays whenever it senses the catalytic converter of a car about to run over it, effectively disabling the vehicle and preventing any damage to the uni?

He's probably not ready to get into a new marriage already, so my guess would be "just fun".
