Online purchase-best place?

Post by kb5zc » Sat, 27 Sep 2008 13:43:37


Hello everyone, I am a newbie to the forum, I have been reading a lot
the last few weeks. I used to ride a unicycle when I was a kid but that
was 30 plus years ago. I am 44 years old and have the bug for a unicycle
again.

My question is where is the best place online to buy a unicycle. I am
not looking for anything expensive. Maybe start with the 24 in torker
and see where it leads me. Basicly, I want to just get my feet wet with
a lower level uni and if the hobby sticks then I can upgrade once I know
it will last.

There is a lot of interesting reading here on this forum. Thanks for
any advice you can give.
I am in Texas so am looking for a U.S. online seller.

Thanks, Tim

This place has an excellent seller rating on Amazon. That is the best
price that I know of.  That is an excellent uni, the best in that price
range IMHO.

That's a great price for the AX. Only about $20 more than I paid for my
LX.

I started riding again when I was 45, and the LX is what I started
with...tom

I know you said you are looking for an on-line source, but you might
want to check with some of your local bike shops,  Several out my way
carry Torker unicycles.  While on-line sellers usually have lower
prices, that advantage is sometimes wiped out by higher shipping costs.

Thanks for all the replies and advice. I ordered the Torker LX26 today.
Shipping was free and the price was right. $129 shipped including
taxes.
I can't wait for it to get here so I can get started, I haven't ridden
in 35 years or so, I have no idea how long it will take me to re-learn.

I'll be reading this forum daily.

Thanks, Tim
