I'm also a relatively new rider from NY state, but in Albany... not very close to Orange County. Pity you're not closer to the capital; not only could we ride together, but you could join our local uni club.

I know the orange-wheeled Torker you described; I came across it while comparison shopping. I first bought a cheapo $50 one from eBay to learn on, and now a new Torker Unistar DX (24") is on its way in the mail. Can't wait!

Ooooo! I didn't know about them. I may have to defect over to them once my Wednesdays get taken by my bowling league. Sunday nights, eh?

Sunday nights are general club, usually ending in a game of uni-basketball and Friday nights during the winter they play uni-hockey all at the Morris building on Park Row. During the summer it's a bit sporadic as it's too warm to meet in the Morris.

(Formerly from the Long Island Unicyclists) You should REALLY try to get yourself to the NY Uni Fest. It's the biggest uni event in your part of the country and I've only ever heard good things about it from everyone I know that's been there. I really have to get to that one someday, but this year I can't.
