R16 Balancer unicycle - Fantastic value for money
on 10 September 2012
This little unicycle was bought for my 11 year old son. We looked at the German manufacturer's website and unicycle advice sites before buying, and measured his inside leg to ground measurement, and reckoned it should be about the right size with some growing room.
We are very pleased indeed with the quality of the product. It was delivered after about 5 working days with the super saver delivery. It is robustly and solidly made, but also looks very good, with a comfortable seat. A very small amount of assembly - attaching pedals and seat - was easily within my son's capabilities. The unicycle is excellent for him for learning on and practising stunts. It was his first go at unicycling, and having read up online about learning, he realised it would take some practice. It took about a fortnight of practising daily and he can now ride comfortably and start from the ground, and even go around corners and up and down hill. The control to go backwards and do stunts is coming slowly and this little cycle will last him for a while as we have several inches of reserve seat post before he will grow out of it. Now he is able to go for some distance at a time, as we expected, it is apparent that going at speed is not what this unicycle will be best for, as the small wheel size means very fast pedalling, but the control for learning unicycling, and for doing stunts is its forte.
The price through Amazon was very good indeed and about half of what most other unicycles would have cost us- but this is a good quality well made looking cycle - a bargain.
