Hey guys im trying to buy a unicycle and the places iv found have ones for like 129 +tax which comes to 150 or so! And they are no name brand hahaha! So my point is ontario or canada should get some good unicycle dealers. I found a dealer in the u.s.a and they want like 109 for a torker lx 20’’ + tax which comes to 156$ in canadian dollers! and thats a good brand name. I think it should be cheaper in canada since i live here.
well the fact is…is that this is not exactly a thrifty sport…you gotta spend some money. and you cant ever say that ontario sucks for buying unis because one of the most respected people in the uni world lives and owns his shop in ontario Darren Bedford. the bottom line is that most people do spend about 150CAD for their first uni. i spent $170 and im sure that people have spent even more then that. so like it or not if you wanna learn to ride or continue riding if you already can your gonna need to suck it up and shell out some cash
opps, didnt see the above post
but dude, use the search feature, just yesterday a guy made a thread that was the exact same as this, or at least as close as you can get to it
Was that the ‘where do I buy in Toronto’ thread?
Since I joined like a day or two before, I’ve already found out that my own uni is a generic one, too. I got it for 140 at a bike shop.
That said, I’ve browsed around on unicycle.com and realized that a starter torker…I think it was a LX? …was like 140-150 or so. And it so has better parts than my dinky little thing.
No offense intended but your few posts in this thread and the other asking about unicycle sources in Ontario seem to form a profile. It seems from the Ontario sources thread that you wanted everyone to look around for you and find a great deal on a unicycle for you and then tell you about it. Now it looks like you want the entire country of Canada to provide a source of cheap, good unicycles for you. It’s beginning to appear as if you just want someone to give you a unicycle. Do some research, check with some more local bike shops, even ask Darren if there is a reputable stocker of reliable mass produced cheap unicycles. He’ll probably tell you. Just do a little on your own.
Norco makes a pretty good sealed bearing, Kris Holms knock-off seat, 20 and 24" uni. I bought one of the 20’s last year for about 175.00. It is far from GENERIC and will do for you to start on. I guess that you could probably find about 400 Norco bike dealers in the BIg Smoke alone that would order one for you.
There, now that didn;t hurt at all, did it???
I dont wanna be mean I know im complaining but just to sum it up im not asking for every one to go and look for me to find a cheap unicycle I asked in another form to help me im new and need to now any sites to buy unicycles off of so If you guys recomended them then they have to be an alright site so please dont assume stuff and dont take words out of my mouth

And i have done lots of re search and im just going to get the toker. also I put this up for oppinions but you have your and I have my so dont take it the wrong way
And canada does not have a very good selection of brands
Cheery little fellow are ya, Darren Bedford all the way!
Please tell me you didint direct that to me lol
canadas selection is just as good as anyone elses! and i assume your buying a uni form the states right? well if thats the case then tack another hundred onto the price for the border costs
I’m sorry, I missed the part about why to not buy from Darren? I mean I know Ontario is a huge province, but he’s probably the best place to get a unicycle if you live there.
Technically, Canada has the best unicycle brand on Earth, if you count Kris Holm’s being Canadian as the country-brand of KH Cycles. If you want stuff that was actually made in Canada be prepared to pay at least twice as much for equivalent quality.
Darren ships everywhere, so for a higher quality cycle he’s your best bet. For learning basic riding, best bets are the LBS and their cheaper stuff, and e-bay.
Or maybe you suck at buying unicycles in Ontario.
ahah good one
