go to www.unicycle.com and go to trials unicycles and its the kh pro, or go to rough terrain and the advanced ones, there all expensive

nowadays you dont have to spend that much money for a good sturdy unicycle, all those are quite old

I bought a used unicycle that the guy spent $1,200 Canadian including upgrades.

This one is $1,600, and you could spend a few hundred more on a better saddle.

Prices have really come down recently!

my freestyle unicycle cost over $1000.

wyganowski frame is a few hundred
48 spoke wheel with a decent rim another hundred or so
miyata saddle
2 pairs of cranks about 50
rubber pedals, non marking tyre, seat post clamp

and then it cost almost 200 to ship it from america to perth because
at the time there were no other suppliers i could get from.

the biggest thing that killed my bank account was the currency conversion.
i think at the time it was about 1USD to 1.6AUD. so all in all i paid over $1000.

Isn't a new Schlumpf about $1500? That may have been it. Or build your own 2-speed unicycle, keep track of your hours of labor, and see if you can do it any cheaper...

The touring unicycles are quite expensive, Dave Stockton's work doesn't come cheap, however it doesn't break when you're 500km from home either..

Once it arrives and is fully paid for (is it in the mail yet, Dave?!) it's going to have been over 1000$, easily.

If you have a $1,500 unicycle, you shouldn't have any problems. Custom frame, custom wheel, custom seat, Magura Brakes, high end seatpost and seat clamp. You can easily have $1,500. Keep in ming that price is all relative. For a 16 year old, that seems like a lot of money, to a 40 year old, it's an inexpensive toy.

Great wheel no doubt. Is it in the mail yet? That's a good one.
