Vital Wombat, I also started with the same unicycle - I bought mine for $10 on Gumtree. =)

Great unicycle to start on, I believe the size - 20" is ideal for adults who are first learning.

My Crane uni - I found it started making odd noises and I needed to tighten the cranks fairly regularly. The saddle also became quite uncomfortable once I could actually stay on for a while (I ended up putting a pair of thick socks over the top and buying cycling shorts).

I upgraded once I could really ride (same wheel size, but a trials unicycle) and have only ridden my old unicycle once since.

Here are my bikes

Hi all,
I am a new forum member, & have been riding Unicycles for about 6 months, but in that time I have managed to collect 4 bikes already:

I started with a 20" Freestyle.
Next came a 20" x 5 foot Giraffe.
Then came the 29" Muni (my favorite bike)
lastly I bought a big wheel 36" KH tourer.

I'm hoping to meet up with any riders interested in Muni for off road fun

Cheers all,
Pete

Calling a unicycle a bike is a major faux pas.

Bike is a contraction of bicycle. Bi means two, cycle means wheel, as in "two wheels".
