Performance Bicycle unicycle - Any good?

I'm new to unicycling. At least, I will be when my unicycle arrives. I ordered one at Performance Bicycle. Has anyone had any experience with these? I get the impression most of their house brand bikes are Taiwanese, and have decent parts.

If I had more time, I would have waited for a deal on a Torker, Sun, or Schwinn on everyone's favorite auction site. But I also have a time limit. I posed a challenge at work, for everyone to go outside their comfort zone and try something different. I'll be trying to learn to ride a unicycle.

Has anyone given one of these a shot already?

Their store in Philly is nice. I've bought a bunch over different items from them. Every time I've went there my experience has been a positive one.
Plus they have great prices.

Well, here it is, starting with the crate. As parts, it didn't seem that sturdy, but felt better as I assembled and tightened everything. Not much for markings anywhere on it. Now, to try to learn to balance on it...

when you learn, just don't do any drops or anything. if it turns out you enjoy unicycling and wanna do something else like mountain unicycling or trials, you'll def need a new one...really though whatever style you end up riding youll need a new one.

this, however, will be perfect for learning
