(Sports) I was pleasantly sreruispd at the quality, strength and durability of this unicycle. And at how fun much an 8 year old has had learning and riding it. It took her a week or two to be able to do a full circle in the driveway (30 minutes to an hour each day).This is probably the right size for anyone up to about 5 feet tall. I had to cut (hacksaw) about 3 off the end of the seat stem so that she could reach the pedals through their full cycle (She is 4 feet tall, and the bottom of the stem hits the top of the wheel if you lower the seat down very low). That has still left enough stem remaining that Ill be able to adjust the seat up as needed for the next several years of growth. One other note about assembly: there is not much to do, but it is very important to put the cranks and pedals on the correct sides. The bolts and threads go in different directions on each side, so if you do it backwards anywhere it is easy to strip the threads. Just look for the markings on each piece they are not easy to find but they are there.A unicycle is not as hard to ride as it might seem (anyone who can learn to ride a bike ie. with normal strength and balance can learn). It provides a good alternative to biking since you only need a small, flat paved area in which to do it. Just dont forget the helmet, since during the time it takes to learn how to go forward many attempts end with a fall. She never had any fall that required the helmet, but as with learning a bike its definitely a risk. One benefit of learning a unicycle over a bike is that at least the unicycle is always going slow. But there are more falls.)I learned to ride a unicycle about 35 years ago, and recently bought a larger (20 ) different model that cost three times as much as this one and it is only slightly higher quality.After a few months now she can go forwards, rock to balance in one place, and go backwards without falls. It has been great fun and exercise, and helping to promote self-confidence and demonstrate how to set incremental goals and work to achieve them. Check out youtube for a wide variety of free lessons and ideas about how to get started and progress. Example beginners game: after the first few days of just trying to balance and go one full-pedal distance, using a different color chalk each day to draw a line for each new record distance achieved.)And now she cant wait until the next small local parade that allows little bikes .and unicycles.<a href='mailto:bersng4il@mail.com'>Gajanand</a>
