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,

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".
Triton 36" + 29" | KH 29" | KH 26" | KH 27.5" Muni | Nimbus eSport Race 24" | Torker LX 24" | Qu-Ax Luxus 20" | Qu-Ax Profi 20" | KH / Impact 19" hybrid

Hello all!
My first post on this forum!
I'm a 40 yo (nearly 41!) female who just started learning from late July this year with the Parramatta Unicycling club. I've been riding @agapes $10 Aldi unicycle
I've very nearly got the freemounting down pat.

Next I guess would be nice to participate in the unicycling hockey, (only started riding carrying a stick for the first time on Friday) and transitioning from cycling to hopping and vv.

Nice people in the Parramatta club! And the kids are truly impressive.

My big learning takeaway... Wear some sleeves cause one day I was wearing a sleeveless dress and happened to take a fall....
