The Club 5' Giraffe is fun to ride and will help you stand out from the crowd. They are not difficult to ride once you have mastered a normal unicycle, though free mounting can be tricky. The Club 5' is high enough to look impressive while still being practical. The Club 5' Giraffe Unicycle has been designed with the intermediate unicyclist in mind.
Fitted with the UDC safety sprocket (to eliminate slippage you can get with the threaded sprockets found on cheap giraffes)
Care must be taken when dismounting from giraffe unicycles not to drop them as this can sometimes bend the frame. Not recommended for workshops or the professional market.

I just bought this unicycle and I switched from a low 20" to this without trouble. My first ride went just fine and I learned to free mount within a few days. my only complaint is that the chain tensioners seem a little flimsy and when the tire is all the way filled the ride is very stiff and it seems off kilter.
