    You can get this Sun 20" for $65, but you get what you pay for.

    A good entry level uni like this (red or Blue)Nimbus 20" for $147 would be better.

    I'm probably going to spend about $650 to $1000 on a muni. It pretty much depends on if I decide to have a brake and thomson seatpost/Cf base and handle. I'm 12 though, and have been saving up my money for like 5 years waiting for somehting legitimate to spend it on. Unicycles it is!

Keep in ming that price is all relative. For a 16 year old, that seems like a lot of money, to a 40 year old, it's an inexpensive toy.
    WHen I was 15 I invested over $1200 into to my muni, while simultaneously paying 500 dollars on a trails and several hunderd on riding gear. I've spent well over $5000 on unicycling in the past 4 years, and it hasn't made a dent in my meager budget.

    I take umbrage with this comment not because it betrays ignorance but because it insults others. Insulting others when you don't have enough information seems pretty stupid, but I don't want to say that it IS stupid in this case because I don't have enough information. But a few more posts like that one and I'll feel a bit more confident in my assessment.

    On the subject of expensive unis, I have only two ego problems: my Stockton-built Coker deluxe with the Wyganofsky (sp?) extention and the 2nd-generation Schlumpf guni (also with a Wyg. extention). And I'm planning to get another ego problem in a few weeks: That gorgeous yellow muni in the link (or something just like it).

    also, compared to say, a nice car, a top of the line uni is almost dirt cheap.

    pdc, I'm going to steal your coker once I figure out where you live

    I wouldn't call it inexpensive, but I know what you're getting at - it's all relative to how much spare money you've got to start with. Certainly a unicycle is far less expensive than an equivalent bike though (but it should be, most of the bits are missing ).

    flyer The touring unicycles are quite expensive, Dave Stockton's work doesn't come cheap, however it doesn't break when you're 500km from home either..

    Once it arrives and is fully paid for (is it in the mail yet, Dave?!) it's going to have been over 1000$, easily.
    Great wheel no doubt. Is it in the mail yet? That's a good one.
