That sounds like a pretty ideal street unicycle.

You might be able to get the same thing a bit cheaper and in Spain at http://tienda.monociclos.com

Qu-Ax is a good brand. For some reason it is more popular in Europe than it is in North America.

The Qu-ax one is a bit on the heavy side, but the wheelset will never die. Maybe ask for the black cranks, since they are stronger. Also they use 25.4 mm seatposts which are less strong than the 27.2 mm you'd find on a Kris Holm or Impact.

Kris Holm 20" is very good, if you also want to do roll tricks the spirit cranks are not ideal though, but everything else is good.

Impact Reagent... If you don't want to do tricks where you stand on your frame, go for a Gravity. I'm also not sure why they have those cranks, but that might be personal preference.

Keep shipping in mind, it might be cheaper to buy from any of the european shops like municycle.com, udc Great britain, udc sweden.....

Also the exhange rate/commision that your card/bank charges you when you buy in a different currency that the one your bank account holds. Not sure how much it is (depending on your card/bank) but that also adds up a little bit.. I looked it up once in mine and it was more than I thought..
