I wouldn't call it inexpensive, but I know what you're getting at - it's all relative to how much spare money you've got to start with. Certainly a unicycle is far less expensive than an equivalent bike though (but it should be, most of the bits are missing ).

also, compared to say, a nice car, a top of the line uni is almost dirt cheap.

pdc, I'm going to steal your coker once I figure out where you live

I take umbrage with this comment not because it betrays ignorance but because it insults others. Insulting others when you don't have enough information seems pretty stupid, but I don't want to say that it IS stupid in this case because I don't have enough information. But a few more posts like that one and I'll feel a bit more confident in my assessment.

On the subject of expensive unis, I have only two ego problems: my Stockton-built Coker deluxe with the Wyganofsky (sp?) extention and the 2nd-generation Schlumpf guni (also with a Wyg. extention). And I'm planning to get another ego problem in a few weeks: That gorgeous yellow muni in the link (or something just like it).

Before I saw the uni's on UDC I thought uni's were supposed to be, an average uni, $50-120, but now I see those prices sure are bargains!Anyways, I thought you had to be crazy and/or filthy stinkin' rich to get a uni from UDC.I know one thing for sure: Right now, I'm not considering getting one of those, I'm considering other uni accesories, though.

WHen I was 15 I invested over $1200 into to my muni, while simultaneously paying 500 dollars on a trails and several hunderd on riding gear. I've spent well over $5000 on unicycling in the past 4 years, and it hasn't made a dent in my meager budget.

I'm probably going to spend about $650 to $1000 on a muni. It pretty much depends on if I decide to have a brake and thomson seatpost/Cf base and handle. I'm 12 though, and have been saving up my money for like 5 years waiting for somehting legitimate to spend it on. Unicycles it is!

You can get this Sun 20" for $65, but you get what you pay for.

A good entry level uni like this (red or Blue)Nimbus 20" for $147 would be better.
