i would just like to say......donot buy a uni from lambert cycles.
my wheel is all warped (bad), my right crank is bent and my left pedal is also bent!
then again...the pedal didn`t come with the uni, i added it...
but anyway........i`m not impressed because after just a few months, my uni is barely ridable!

Is this a online shop, or a local shop?

what type of uni?
i feel your pain!

i forgot to ask!
how'd ya break all the stuff?
also: what pedals were they?
lambert cycles is a parts dealership company in canada.
i ordered it through a bike shop.
i don`t know what type of uni it is......it`s not expensive!
to break the stuff i guess i just ride it too rough...
i went down a trail called gorge (it`s comparable to those north shore trails......not as bad, but comparable)
that probably weakened the uni...then i droped off a picnic table, landed wrong and bent the pedal and wheel.
the crank i think got bent during gorge.
i only had wellgo pedals, so it`s not a big loss.

how much $ was it?

I dont really think you can blame lambert on your uni, you stated that it was a cheap uni in the first place, and i really doubt that it was made for muni riding, there are muni's out there for sell, but a quality one is over $400 (I looked, still thinking about getting it).
Anyhow, i guess you get what you pay for, im sure what you learned on this uni well pays for its self, maybe its time to move up to a real muni if your doing thoes kind of tricks :D
yeah i know my uni wasn't made to uni....but i would of liked for it to have lasted more than three months.
i just started uniing and already i have to upgrade...this is bad since instead of paying 100$ for a uni, i'll end up paying like 600$.
plus my bike isn't in tip top shape either...and it's not made to tough the stuff i put it throught (i only have a hybrid, but i drop anything that seems droppable).
i could easaly waste two grands on all this......but i have to pay universaty.....so i'm broke O(
all is good now, i got rid of the bent stuff (sold it), and i got a better deal on another lambert......so i'll ride this till i get money :o)

The strongest unicycle is still made by http://www.semcycle.com/ and for the Muni addicts http://www.unicycle.com/ is making a special version.

you think the sem deluxe is the strongest uni?
the semcycle frame is weak!
i have seen them bend right in half at the place where the fork halves join together.
i would instead recommend getting the pashley muni or one like it, but do not get a semcycle deluxe.
semcycle xl is ok, but can only fit street tires.
just my 2 yen

I've seen a ferrari hit by a truck.
the door was bent.
I would'nt recomment a ferrari, you better can get a Leopard.
