Indeed a great Uni

I bought mine almost 11 months ago. It is my first uni. It has taken tons of abuse, and is solid as a rock. I eventually did replace the seat, I got good enough to go long distances.
I keep telling myself to upgrade to a Nimbus or better, but I just haven't felt the need. I don't feel like I've outgrown this one yet.
If you're an adult,

If you're an adult, like me, and buying the Torker CX to learn on, and unsels you have the toosh of a 10 year old, then you will probably want to buy another saddle for it. I bought the Torker CX and let me tell you, the saddle is quite difficult for an adult to learn on, at least for idling or rocking in one spot anyway. The saddle is narrow in the front like a bicycle saddle and just kept sliding out from between my legs. I would have tried to adjust it more nose up but there is no way to adjust this saddle either. At first I thought it was just me until I did a little Internet research and found that other people have had problems too. I also tried my sister's unicycle by another maker, which had a better saddle, and found that I didn't have this problem at all with it. I ended up buying a better saddle and it's just fine now. Maybe if I were a better rider, this wouldn't be a problem? But being so new at it, I wanted to make the learning process as easy as possible.Instead of paying another $30 or so for a new saddle, you might be better off, for about $25 more, with the Torker LX instead. The saddle looks like it's a better one and I haven't read or heard any complaints about it either.
Great for learning!

I got the 20 inch torker unistar to learn, and it is fantastic if you want to learn to unicycle get this one. The seat has a great handle, but the seat can be really hard but other then that you need to get this unicycle.
Best uni available for the price

This unicycle is ridiculously durable and has an extremely smooth ride. The seat, although not great, suits the buyer's needs and the handle is a great feature for bunny-hopping. I've ridden this around the block and even done some Muni, and it still looks wonderful. One problem that occurs is that since the edges of the frame jut out slightly, my knees bang against it while making turns. It may just be my height, I'm 5' 6", I don't know, but other than that it is a phenomenal machine.

this is a great unicycle to learn on and is ok for off road and trials, both to an extent. going down some hills i stripped the peddles and messed up the cranks. and just went to a local bike shop and put on some bike pedals. all around a wonderful unicycle to learn on. but the seat is horrible
although i now have the torker dx 24" and is awesome
