Muni riding is about attacking the big stuff, the small stuff and everything in between. From the tallest peaks to the most technical descents. The Nimbus 26" Muni is the bigger brother of the Nimbus 24" Muni. The 26" Muni is a little faster than the 24" Muni and some choose it because they like the way it handles, rolling over obstacles easily.

I love this Muni!

I've had this beast since July, and it seemed a little bit out of my price-range, but it was worth it. After the first few rides I noticed that on of the crank arms was loose (I chose the Nimbus Venture2 cranks), and I contacted Unicycle.com. They said that there was occasionally some imperfections in how the crank arms were machined. They sent me a new set of cranks, and it has been riding smooth every since! Thanks Unicycle.com for fantastic customer service!
This was an upgrade from my training uni, a Torker 24", and it has been incredible. I added a Kris Holme Freeride saddle, and the aluminium DX Pedals. I really like this setup. My next addition could be brakes?
How does it ride? The only downside that I can say about this is that it's a little heavy, but it's a Muni! It's not as maneuverable as 24", but that's about it. It's big enough that you go faster, and with the massive tire it handles off-road conditions with ease while still being easy enough to maneuver around most anything.
Price = Worth it
Value = 5/5
Quality = 4/5 (This was because of the crank arm issue, but you will likely not have this problem)

This is the best. Rode it on Blankets Creek and had a blast. It handled very well, and the drops were magnificent, it held up and kept on going. Although it is a bit on the heavy side, with a little trouble going up hills, it was the best MUni I have ever ridden.
Old guy having a lot of fun!

When I was in my 20's I bought a cheap unicycle from Sears and learned to ride well with no one to help me. But one of the cranks broke after about 2 years and I never replaced it.
I am now 66 years old and just wanted to see if I could still ride one. I saw the Nimbus 26" Muni on sale and ordered it. It took me about a week to get going on it (with a lot of abuse to the uni, but it took it without any problems) and now I am riding it 4 to 5 miles without stopping. I am having a BALL (even though my family thinks I am nuts!). This is a GREAT unicycle. With it being so strong and sturdy, it gives you a lot of confidence when riding it. I am now planning to order a 29" for more street use.
Excellent Unicycle! Love It!!

I am 13 years old, and I just got it, came back from my first muni ride and I am in love!!! This unicycle handles soooo we'll, and it can ride over like.... Anything!
I got it with the kris holm freeride saddle, and I love the saddle. It is something you can sit on for hours, and not even be sore by the end of the day.It's price is amazing, and I think it is kris holm quality, for like half the price! Anyway, this unicycle is AMAZING!!!!
Nothing bad just all good.

I completely love this unicycle. I have not found any downsides of it and I don't think that I will. The tires are VERY thick and get amazing traction.

I have been riding this MUni for 3 months now on street and single track and DH and it has done 5ft drops with a 220 pound rider with no complaints

This is the first uni I've owned rather than borrowing from a club, and it's really amazing. At first, I was floored by the size of the tire it comes with, which I named the 'monster tire.' I'm sure it's great for mud, but for my combination of roads and limestone trails, I decided to replace the tire with a 26"x2" mountain bike tire. Thankfully, the frame can seat a wide range of tires, so I can change the tire for different purposes. It looks a lot more reasonable now, and is better for my purposes. The frame, seat, and the wheel itself are fantastic. Certainly a keeper.
Excellent Muni for the money.

This is my first Muni. I have been studying for 8 months whether to go with the nimbleness of a 24" or the speed of a 29". This 26" is the best of both worlds. And the components rival that of a KH machine at half the overall price.

I've had the muni for several months now and am quite satisfied. I am 5' 11" tall and I think the 26" is perfect for moderate offroading and cruising around town. It's my "all around" unicycle. Quality is very good and I lucked out and bought it on sale. The 150 cranks are just right for my location (Central Pa) as we have quite a few hills. I bought a lighter offroad tire and regular inner tube and saved alot of weight. I also have a Hookworm for the street and like it, although it must be pumped up to 60psi or it gets squirrely due to the crown on the road.
I would recommend it to anyone who is considering a uni to be used on and off road as the 26" performs well on both. If you plan on all dirt...get the 24". If you plan on all road...get the 29" or a 36".

I just bought this Muni about a month ago and It is just simply awesome. It seems really strong and I have ridden it through snow, mud, water and on the street. The last unicycle I had broke when i jumped off my Dads trailer which is about 4 feet tall. I hope that this one can take the jump since its built for handling mountains. But I don't want to test that until I ride it in the rocky mountains this summer. And all you people complaining about the weight. You Should Stop. Its not that heavy Its kind of light. But then again I'm not used to such good quality bikes. And for all i know the expensive ones for over $1000 might not weigh anything compared to this one. All i know is that I can't afford those so I will just be happy with this one.
