The 12 days sale is usually better. In the past they made it into a sort of scavenger hunt to find the daily sale, but in the last couple of years they've made it easier to find the new stuff.

I'm hoping to upgrade my 700c UW to a welded metal one. I like my wooden one well enough, but since I really enjoy riding it more than I ever thought I would it seems reasonable to get a nicer version. Who knows, maybe the aluminum frame adds a little something to the ride quality?

It occurs to me now that I may have confused the Cyber Weekend sale with the 12 days of Christmas sale. Perhaps there is still hope for a 15% off EVERYTHING in the store which is the same deal Target offered on Cyber Monday and nearly shut down PayPal selling more than one iPad every second.

Speak of the devil... The Cyber Weekend page now has the title "12 Days of Christmas!" and has lots of new items, mostly smaller stuff but also a few complete unicycles I don't recall seeing before. Maybe some good deals on hubs if anyone's got a project waiting on one of those.

I asked Josh on the online chat thing on Unicycle.com He said all the sale items for the 12 days of Xmas were already posted. If I understood him correctly, nothing new would get added. Bummer but perhaps that will change.

That's good to know but kind of a let down.

Maybe we're too much in a niche market, and they don't have crazy margins allowing big sales ?

Pierrox, I've been to UDC in the US a few times, and I can confirm that. They aren't making tons of money on unicycle parts, and there isn't a ton of staff. Just a couple of passionate people distributing awesome rides.

The Nimbus drift trike hub is listed in the 12 Days of Christmas sale but I discovered that the disc version (which I find more useful) is also on sale ($60 vs. $140) although it's not listed under the 12 Days sale or regular sale list:
