In this price range I would guess you’re likely talking about cyclepro, which is
what most bike shops seem to carry. I would definitely avoid them! I had one and
had trouble with the cotter pin cranks. I also had to buy a longer seat post
right away because the one it came with was really short, and I found the seat
rather uncomfortable.

I would say it’s worth mail ordering from somebody who makes better unicycles.
