Bedford Unicycles

I would just like to post a review that pretty much covers everything a [Canadian] unicyclist would want.

If you live in Canada (I cannot vouch for intl' shipping costs) there is no reason to get anything unicycling related from any source other than Bedford Unicycles.

I have had nothing but fantastic experiences dealing with Darren Bedford as both an individual customer, and a Canadian Uni club owner.

I have had nothing but quick, knowledgable response and dealings from/with Darren.

For having basically the monopoly of Canadian unicycle dealings, he has unbelievably great prices. His level of personal service is second to none, and even before I developed a 'several things a month on order relationship' with Darren, I was treated as I was his best customer.

He either stops carrying, or stops recommending items in his stock that people have ruined on a regular basis, and will generally seem to replace something 'No questions asked' (although...who is going to replace something that is definetly user-fault....I never tried to return somethign like that, so I can't mention anything about it)

Where unicycle.com seems to sell everything that has one wheel (even the junkiest, pieces of crap), Darren stocks quality stuff at a price you are not going to be able to match.

He is not only a great source of knowledge, but is a great person to know, and to deal with, and I look forward to putting any of his future kids through college with a lifetime of too-many-unicycle purchases.

Brian

My wife and I spent 3 hours with Darren this afternoon while he gave our Uni's a tune up/adjustment. He is absolutely amazing and I would have no problems recommending him to anybody.

I'm a Canadian thinking about getting a new Uni, based on this and all the other things i've read in the forums, I'm very seriously going to consider looking to Bedford when I talk myself into spending more money on a unicycle.

Just a bit of first-hand caveat: Darren's 28" frames will only fit 28" tires, not a 29" Nanoraptor. Not sure about other 29" tires like the Continental.

Does Darren have both 28 and 29 frames?

I ordered a frame from Darren for my 700c wheelset. He said it would fit a 29er.

I just swapped tires from my Conti Top Touring 28x1.75 to the Nanoraptor 2.1. the Nanoraptor fits but I don't think a Big Apple would.

Here's the crown clearance.

I hope, and bet, that it is in Canadian.

1 Canadian $ = $.77 US.
