I am a beginner in unicycling and would lke to buy a good, not to expensive
I have offers for the Savage and the Cyclepro unicycle and would like to know if
there is a bigger difference in quality or anything else and if they are good
for riding longer distances as well as doing tricks later.

No difference in quality, as they share the same parts. The question is what
parts do they have on them. Don’t buy sight unseen. Don’t get the one with the
metal bumpers on the seat. Those seats are less comfortable, and I consider them
an obstacle to riding, or at least riding enjoyment. I can’t tell you if either
one has that, because they change parts arbitrarily and even the folks at
CyclePro and Savage probably couldn’t tell you what will be in their next
shipment from Taiwan.
For longer distances, you might want to consider a bigger wheel. You can get the
Semcycle XL in 26" or 28". Great for cruising, but not as good for tricks. And
not as cheap. Any of these unicycles will suit you well for a while, but the
type of riding you do will determine how long it lasts you. In that respect, you
get what you pay for.
:DI own a cyclepro 20" unicycle. I love this unicycle for riding around the neighborhood and is great for learning on. I got it used and it still seems to be good.(when i got it it wasn’t exactly taken care of) it is good for idle and backwards type riding tricks but i would not recommend it at all for jumping tricks. overall it is a good unicycle to learn on and to learn a few freestyle tricks but is not recommened for advanced tricks and hopping. Hope this helped
