Pashley or Semcycle?

Post by G.M. En » Thu, 13 Mar 1997 04:00:00


Hello.

I posted a long time ago about finding a unicycle.

I'd just about decided on a Schwinn because that was all I could find
when I went around to the city and towns (SF and Berkeley).

However, they seemed to be jacked up prices and figured that I might as
well buy a Semcycle.  

Got a friend who lets me practice on his (mysterious brand), but I
really need to get my own now.

So, I am this close () to getting a semcycle, but I'll have to wait a
little longer before I clunk down too much because I'm clunking down a
bunch for a trip...and will be going to London and I know that there's a
shop that sells a Pashley.  

Can anyone give me their recommendations?  MANY MANY THANKS in advance.

Gloria

Gloria,

Recently I purchased two unis from Semcycle. I decided to buy the XL
unicycles they offer as a budget alternative.  They were highly
recommended as a great value for the money.  I have only had them a few
weeks, however compared to the Zepher I learned on, they are wonderful!
Semcycle also ships the unis the next day in most cases.

Good luck.
Greg

I just recently purchased a Semcycle, after riding a '70's 24" Schwinn
since, well, the 70's, and it is wonderful. I bought the 26", not the XL
model however.  It is VERY solid and smooth. Love at first ride.

There are a number of different Unicycles available here in the UK and,
although the quality has improved a lot recently the Pashley is still a
bit behind Semcycle and DM which are the two main high quality makes.

As you know about Sem already, I'll just say that the DM is a solid,
hand built unicycle which has, in a lot of peoples opinion, the most
comfortable saddle in the business and it is well worth considering.
There are a few models including the Ringmaster, the Unihoc, and the
Superhoc. If you want to know more you can e-mail DM on at:
