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!


anyway....gnein!!

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.

Cant really blame lambert cycles, can you?

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

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(
anyway....gnein

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
