Where was that? I’m from Livonia, MI. We had some unicycle clubs in the Detroit
area, of course, but it was always hard getting the word out. The Internet has
made it so much easier for people to find us and for us to communicate with

We were there, but you had to look really hard. We’ve been here on the Internet
for over 5 years now too, so glad you have started looking…

I think you got your main questions answered, so I won’t repeat that.
Unicycle.com has most of the brands that are out there, so it’s mostly a matter
of your budget.
When it comes to used unicycles, you can put an ad in the paper or something, or
check eBay. But I wanted you to know there are two “hot” MUnis out there
somewhere, and they are mine. They were stolen from my car a week ago, and
they’re very easy to identify. As you will be searching, I wanted you to know
this in case you find any high-end used MUnis for sale out there. There is a
reward for information leading to their return.
A Roger Davies carbon fiber MUni. It has a black frame, green Miyata seat,
suspension seat post, a red tire, and silver aluminum pedals. It’s the only
frame of its kind, with steel pins in the fork legs.
A chrome DM ATU (from Unicycle.com). It has a Unicycle.com sticker on it, a
red Miyata seat (very rare in itself), and a very fat, 2.6" Gazzaloddi tire.
Please let me know if you hear of anything like that for sale. Used MUnis are
very rare, as there aren’t that many in the first place, and even less people
who want to get rid of the ones they have. Go ahead and buy them if you’re
afraid you won’t be able to contact the seller at a later time, and I will not
only reimburse you, I will arrange a discount for you on your own MUni (from

I don’t think there are any organized groups, but you should contact Daniel
Hopkins, who lives in Glendale. His web site:

If you like, I can add you to my MUni mailing list. I use this list to notify
people of upcoming MUni events, though this is mostly in the Northern CA area.
The MUni Weekend also gets info broadcasts to the main unicycling newsgroup. But
we try to get together once a month up here for a ride somewhere in the Sierra,
or Bay area, or Santa Cruz. Check out some of our upcoming rides on my Events
