A Singularly Excellent Upgrade

This unicycle was a gift for my husband after riding his Schwinn 24" for 45 years. The ride is so much smoother that he was in love with it immediately. The retraining of muscle memory is going well but it takes gettng use to it. Would totally recommend this upgrade!

This is my second unicycle. My first was the Schwinn 24", which was great. After much waiting, I finally pulled the trigger on this one. It came today, and I assembled it, and took it for a spin! No remorse, no regrets. This is a quality machine, and at a price point that is very reasonable. It is amazing how different this feels from the 24" wheel. It is like flying!
If you are in the market for a 29er, this is one you won't regret picking up.

Awesome! My last uni was a 24" wheel and this is so much smoother and faster. I couldn't believe how big the wheel was. It took some getting used to, a different feel but if you can ride a 24, you'll figure it out soon. It is definitely the unicycle for longer distances. It is still wieldly enough for maneuvering. I have nothing bad to say, I'm glad I bought it.

Had mine for 2 years now and many miles on and off road. The Duro tire is excellent for road and light of road riding. I use an eight pack for MUNI. This uni has been through a lot and rides great. I love it! Early on had a problem with spokes breaking and UDC sent a set of new ones for free! Never any quality problem since. It goes and goes trouble free! Now I'm ready for the 36".
Don't let the name fool you!

Don't let the description of this as a "road unicycle" fool you. Give some thought to crank selection, buy an extra offroad tire (perhaps the WTB Dissent) and you have two very different and imminently capable unis.
I tortured myself for weeks debating the relative merits of the 26" versus the 29", but settled on this one and it has been fantastic. Though I do have fewer tires to choose from than I would have had with a 26", there are plenty of great choices in the 29" size available on the shelf.
As always, Josh and the guys at UDC were fantastic to deal with.
A Quality Ride!

After more than a year of use, I can say that this is a great unicycle to get! I use it as transportation as well as on and off road trail riding. On long rides I average 8 mph. The original tire on it is great, but I had a blowout and now use a schwalbe big apple and that is almost as good. The frame and wheel are very solid and sturdy, but are heavy and have inertia. The saddle was fine for a while, but I now want something more comfortable. I recommend buying with the KH Freestyle saddle. Overall this unicycle is for someone who wants to ride far and fast. If you want maneuverability in small areas, buy something smaller. Otherwise, get this one!
