Could peaple give me their experiences of Pashley unis as I am thinking of
buying one. What are they like for their relatively cheap prices?

Thanx

Tom, please read my previous post on "buying a long distance uni". The
Pashley Muni is a very good unit. Someone used the term "a little rough
around the edges". I'm sure they are refering to the bearing holder
arrangment. With some very slight mods though, the unicycle can be made
into a better than average unit. However, the Pashley "Muni" was not
cheap (at least not in my neck of the woods).          Mike

I bought a 26" Pashley Muni a few weeks ago and took it to the National
Unicycle Convention to do some mountain riding. Overall I'm glad I got it.  It
held up well, and gave me good leverage to get over obstacles.  I'm able to
roll over lots of things and not notice that would have been more of a
nuisance on a 24" uni.  The only 2 bad things I've noticed are the seat and
the tire.  The seat is very wide, which should be good for comfort, but the
padding is minimal, and if you sit on it too long you feel the metal
underneath.  I didn't find this to be a problem on the trails, where I'm off
the seat a lot, but it hurts after extended regular riding.

The knobby tire makes the unicycle sensitive to leaning.  I'll probably
replace it here shortly.

Overall, though, I'm happy with the Pashley.  None of my unicycles are the
same as when I got them, so I don't mind a bit of customization.

The saddle is definately one of the worst parts of the Pashley. Not only
is it uncomfortable, but it tends to fall apart if one holds onto the
front when hill climbing etc - the welds are rather weak. I've changed
mine for a viscount, while Sarah uses a Miyata.

Which tyre did you have? The one that came with mine was really good
for fire-roads, but didn't have serious enough knobbles for anything wet
or muddy off-road. Sarah's however is rather more knobby and she really
likes it.
