keep in mind this is Canada so products typically cost more and cost more to ship in comparison to the US
You might be better off putting your cash into a newer model unicycle. That style of seat is usually pretty uncomfortable & has the potential to snag fingers due to its seat frame / bumper design. As well, it looks as though the tire is original so it could be fairly weather damaged & might require replacement along with the tube that has been suggested.
Replacing the seat, tire & tube will easily add another $50 to $100 dollars to the price. There’s also a chance that the cranks could be bent or excessivly loose as well.
you live in Victoria, BC ?
while many of us here have for sure learned on worse, I think all of us could agree that we would have been happier learning on something a little more solid.
unicycle.com has a lot of learner unicycles for not much more than that.
You should give Grin Cyclery a call in Vancouver - do you know about them? They are a specialty uni shop (UDC Canada dealer), and now have a good range in stock.
I’m thinking about getting one of the 24" bikes in the beginner section of unicycle.com
I live in a fairly flat area, and I want to mainly use this for getting to and from work which is about a 20 minute walk. I’m not REAALLLYYY into doing super fancy tricks.
Think it’d be a good use of my tax return this spring?
