Some identification help please

I have recently acquired 2 unicycles. I have no idea if they are good, bad, indifferent. Could anyone help identify what they are and if they are worth anything? Both seem to be in good working order. Many thanks





I don’t know these uni’s specifically, but they both look like a lot of the stuff coming from China. There’s nothing special about them, and similar rides are had for $60.

While they won’t put up with more advanced riding they would do for someone who just wants to learn how to balance, and ride. That’s probably the extent of their value.

The red one has better bearings and a more durable seat. Both are very shiny, which is important. :smiley:

As the others have said, both are beginner-level but look like they’re in excellent condition. The green one has “lollipop” bearings which are out of fashion, but if the wheel turns then they’re doing all they need to. I like the green color and the matching painted rim. The quick-release seatpost clamp on the red one will be an annoyance. While it makes it easier to straighten out a crooked seat, you’ll have to do that every time it hits the ground because they don’t clamp very well. Both would be more fun with shorter cranks.

The main thing is to make sure that the cranks and the pedals stay tight. The easiest way to damage one is to keep riding it after something has gotten loose. Pry out the “dust caps” in non-pedal ends of the cranks and check the nuts under there for tightness. (If you leave the caps off, it’s easier to check them often and it also looks meaner, and there’s nothing inside that would be hurt by dust.)

Welcome and happy riding!

Yep, as far as learner-unis go…As long as you’re willing to dedicate to get your @$$ on it, it’s all good;)

The bearings on the green one look like what came on the original Pashley Muni back in 1997 or so. It’s a better-made lolipop than the Taiwanese ones from the 80s/90s, but still suffers from the weakness of running the bolts through round tubing with flat nuts and washers. Because they go all the way through, they are at least half as damaging to the fork as the Taiwanese ones.

For better identification by us far-away people it would help to have close-ups of the stickers, fork crowns and any place where there are labels stamped into hubs, seats, etc.

Both look like decent basic unicycles (from China probably), fine for beginners or general use, but not suited to lots of trail riding or drops.
