    Depends on what you want? Mountain, town cruising, giraffe, etc?

    I have a mountain uni, a Torker DX. It's a 24" wheel. It was about $100. I love it.

    $100 for the DX? I was looking a while ago, and I don't remember them priced quite that low!

    mtb uni is hardcore
    also my friend's little brother used to do all this psycho **** on top of buildings and stuff

    ps i don't mean that in a bad way

    Semcycles are the best. They also make the most comfortable seat, I have one on every unicycle I have (~6). I also picked up an old schwinn at a thrift store one time for $5 that I ride alot. If you have the sticktoitiveness to actually take the time to learn to ride it, its a hell of alot of fun.

    If you're just getting into it, get a cheapo summit uni off of craigslist for 25 bucks. That way you can drop it all you want, abuse it and eventually break it and not worry about it. Once you have the hang of it, get a decent one...I like the older shwinns.

    ^ Ditto. It's a blast but I need a bigger one. I only have a 20" and at 5'10", it's a little too twitchy.

    craigslist has a severe lack of unicycles in my area, let alone $25 unicycles, which is right what I want to spend.
