RE: Types of unicycles
> Can any of you think of any other brand of unicycles that are not listed here?
Your list includes brands and models. Watch out for double listings. I can think
of these adds, some of which are no longer made (old):
Royce Union (old, Japanese) Iverson (old, cheapie) Unic (Taiwan) Matthews (old,
CA based, also made Giraffes) Emory (FL based) Panasonic (old) Norco (Canada)
(from Europe) Walther (Germany) Bauer (old, Germany) Imholz (Switzerland) Juno
(Denmark) Siegmono (Germany)
And how come nobody mentioned The Unicycle Factory?
Whatever you put together, try to make it so there’s room to add more brands,
and more models under the various brand names.
As someone else mentioned, many of the world’s brands share common parts. Parts
of the unicycles from Siegmono, Semcycle, CyclePro, Zephyr, Savage, Bauer and
others all originate from the same factory. If not, they’re using almost the
exact same tooling in different factories.
Also, many of these importing/distributing companies make changes in their
unicycles on an irregular basis. Part of this may be how the cycle is spec.'d by
the importer, and part may be them being stuck with what they get from the
factory in Taiwan. So two different owners of Cycle Pro unicycles may have
different pedals, crank arms, bearing attachments, and seats.
Before your head starts swimming away, just think how much simpler this is than
trying to do the same thing with bicycles!
