My 10yr old son has had this unicycle for 2 yrs now. It still works fine and he picked up up quickly. Some of his friends would not even attempt it. The child needs to be coordinated and have some guts in order to succeed with it. I did not have any problems with the assembly and parts.
It's a nice-looking kickstand and it's a good price. The problem is that it doesn't fit all frames, as advertised. Furthermore, although I knew it was a rear-axle mount, it didn't come with instructions or mounting hardware. I took it to my local bike shop and they said it would not fit onto the frame of my 26\" Ironhorse Quantum II.
Awful. Instructions left a lot to be desired for mounting. Came with all screws in and when I opened one fell out. It would not screw in at all. Bigger than I thought. Not dark like picture. Returned the day I received it.
I ordered this bicycle for my grandson's 5th birthday. I was dissapointed when I found out that the wheel on the back was defective. I sent an email to Walmart Customer Care regarding this issue. It was very upsetting to me when something like this happens. Can this item be return \/replace into one of the Walmart close by where I lived? Please, let me know and send me an email regarding this. Up until now my grandson is still waiting for me to get him a replacement for this bicycle. His birthday was on Nov 24, and still unable to use or to ride his gift. My email is email@example.com. Thank you in advance.
4 out of 6 batteries had corrosion in the packaging. 6 replacement batteries cost $26 @ local Radio Shack. Battery installation diagram on the packaging is tough to decipher, so you've got a 50-50 shot of installing the batteries the wrong direction. If you do the "little beasties" start to generate some heat due to the short-circuit discharge. Hint: install the batteries so that the top of the batteries (side with writing) faces the wheel rim/inflation valve. Screwing the caps onto the wheel are a little tricky, you have to adjust the cap so that they flash brightly, possible they can dimly flash due to a poor fitting. There's a clear white rubber gasket (hard to see if you drop it) that seals the cap from water. The gasket kinda reminds me of the clear/white rubber washers/bands that kids use on braces. Be careful not to over tighten the cap be ause you'll pinch/loop out the gasket & thus defeat the purpose of the water barrier. Once you adjust the caps, they work as advertised. LEDs are not bright enough for daylight -- product is best for low-light conditions (i.e. dusk, dawn, night). I like the fact that the lights continue to flash 5-10 secs after motion stops, e.g. A momentary pause at an intersection. Any bump, not just rolling motion will get ' em flashing again.
This water bottle is way over priced. You can buy the same thing for half the price at other stores. Wish I had not bought it. It's cheaply made and the plastic smells. The photo always shows two bottles but you only get one. I knew that before I bought it but others may not.
I like the unicycle very much but they did say ''20 wheel but its more like a ''18 wheel. The height is perfect but the insructions I got where in German so that made thing a little more difficult then they needed to be. All in all if you are just beginning or just need a cheap decent unicycle fast this is it.
The devise works as advertised; I couldn't justify a reason to spend any more for a bicycle bell. A word of caution: The threaded mounting screws that accompanied the bell were too short. I replaced them with 10 mm screws, 1.0 inch long.
