I bought one recently, but to be honest, I don’t enjoy it... at least not right now.
1. Balance is very funny with the pedal axle lower than the centre of the wheel. Because of this it’s very easy to lose balance forwards or backwards. I broke a post on my balcony because the uni just flew out from under me and I didn’t have a hold/control of it. It can fly far and fast when you don’t have it under control on a dismount.
2. On mine, both cranks feel loose, need constant tightening. Cranks are cotterless.
3. You may encounter chain slop which makes it unpleasant/unnerving to ride. This can be fixed but you may need to play with it or spend time to get it fixed.
4. The Q factor is huge and that makes mounting really difficult even though you are very low to the ground. If you put any pressure on the first crank the unicycle will turn in that direction.

In short... I would not buy one again. For speed I feel a 36” is a much better unicycle, even though it’s not easy to mount. At least the 36” is rideable first go if you can unicycle. The hunirex is like learning to unicycle all over again, and is fiddly.
