    I have a very cheap ($18 new) uni for my son. He's 6 years old. The
    wheel is not straight and I fear that that will interfere with his
    learning. When I rotate the pedals I can see the wheel get closer or
    farther to the sides of the fork, about 1/4-1/2 inch wobble. There is
    no play in the bearings, something is just out of whack.

    SO he's starting to ride, about 4 feet w/o support and I am thinking I
    either need to fix this thing, or I need to get him another little
    jugglebug or torker.

    I learned on uni made of the front half of a tricycle and a pile flange
    and a 2x4 for a seat, so maybe I should let him endure the hardship!

    Thoughts?

    get a 20in. torker LX. It is great for learning, not horribly expensive
    like $100, looks very nice, and comes with a nice seat, great tire and
    holds up well.
