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 haven't been on a unicycle for 30 years. I talked to one of the guys in Customer Service. He asked me basic questions about my height, weight, measurements and preferences. We selected this model and it is perfect.
It came quick in the mail and only took me 30 minutes to assemble...and I took my time. I got on it and off I went across my flat driveway. I am surprised I still have my balance memory and a fair amount of skill level to ride reasonably well.
The wide knobby tire provides the stability I need at this point and the 26" diameter tire makes it easy to cover ground pretty quick. I can't really turn-on-a-dime, cuz the tire is big and bulky, but I really don't need to turn quickly, as I will be using this to ride on flat streets for a while, then on basic trails, cruising on the beach boardwalk and riding hard-pack sand.
The pedals have grippy type screw heads on the surface. You can't *slide or adjust* your foot position when riding, like you can with just plain old pedals. So, you need to be able to hop-off early, if you feel your starting to lose control. The more I ride, the less this will be an issue.
This is good exercise and builds up leg muscles and overall body strength....and it's a ton of fun and you can amaze your friends ;-)

1000 Mile Review

After pedaling over 1000 miles on this uni I can say I love it. It does what a uni should. It is stout. The Duro Leopard tire held up well and was replaced recently. The stock pedals are grippy with removeable pins. The Nimbus Gel seat is good for 20+ mile jaunts.
Check over bolts and spokes to keep things in good order. Once in a while there is a loose one. Loose spokes cause broken spokes.
Get out and ride.
Nimbus 26" muni
Posted by x on Oct 20th 2013
This muni is great quality and is durable enough to handle pretty much anything that the beginner unicyclist can throw at it. I definitely would recommend this to anyone. Worth the money!!!!!!
Great Uni! Great Price! Super Fast Shipping!

I bought this Muni after talking to the folks at unicycle.com - I was originally going to get a 24" but Josh told me he thought a 26" would be better - I got the seat I wanted and the cranks that I wanted and it was at my house in 3 days! it was packed well and in perfect condition. I had no trouble assembling it and I love it!! I haven't ridden a uni in 30+ years and this one was just right! Thanks Josh and everybody else at unicycle.com - one of my coworkers bought the same one today!

I have been riding this muni around for the last few weeks and have had a blast. The tire is plenty wide and has enough volume to provide some cushion over obstacles. I went with the 150mm cranks, they are nice and provide a good pace without too much wobble when spinning fast, and enough torque to make it up some steep inclines. The nimbus gel seat is comfy enough for some 6+ mile rides, and would be fine for even more.
I have noticed some crank creak already. I will be checking the spacers and seating of the isis cranks to try and remedy this.
Overall it has been a ton of fun, and I would recommend this MUni to anyone.
A Great Ride

Although I spend more time on my KH20, my Nimbus 26 gets plenty of use on less technical trails along with being good in the snow. it's tough and built straight. with the Hookworm I put on it once in a while, it's not so great on roads with a lot of camber, but overall for me, it's worth having as long as there's also a 24 hanging around.

This muni is awesome i have ridden down some intense terrain that i would never done other wise i would recomend it to anyone who loves the sport!
Brilliant, just a tad heavy

excellent muni, strong and easily assembled, made of good quality parts, would recommend to anyone. Only problem ive had with it was the pedals, must be a common problem because my friend has the same uni and same problem

This is an excellent Muni. From stair cases to offroad this beast had made it through it all. The bigger wheel is faster and rolls over obsticals easily. I have taken it off a few 1-3 foot drop offs. This uni is super strong. Plus the handel on the seat is a dream. Only complaint is the plastic pedals.

Just received this Uni the other day and I must say it's like night an day versus my Torker LX 24' ( I purchased that uni just to get back in the swing of things after not riding for over 25years. The Nimbus 26" rides over branches, gravel and other small obstacles like their not even there! Can't wait to hit the trails.
