    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

    I've seen a ferrari hit by a truck.
