Why does nobody talk about the 48" uni on unicycle.com?

is it the strength or the price or what?

The 48" has a hard tire, a la the average tricycle; the 36" Coker is air-filled. There is no comparison in riding comfort, sustainable speed, or safety. Just my opinion, but the only reasons someone would buy the 45" would be out of a nostalgia element (remnant of the penny-farthing that was Uni's mother), or to get the visual element of it as part of a uni show.

All that and if you do order it, poor John Drummond has to get some chain clippers and steal the darn thing right off the street.
