I am very impressed with this unicycle, from the delivery to the product itself.
It arrived exactly on the day as expected and there was no problems with any packaging or anything like that!
I am a pretty short guy: 5'5" so I ordered the 200mm seat post and 138mm cranks and it fits me just perfect when adjusted almost as low as it can go. The seat post will only make it an inch lower before it hits the tire, so about 5'3" would be the shortest height that would be able to ride this, unless you get shorter cranks.
The unicycle rides very well, it is pretty fast due to it's size and it also has great traction. I few things I like about it is that the seat is really comfortable and the handle on it is very convenient. Another great thing is the quick adjustment with the seat post. You don't have to get a hold of an allen/hex wrench and you can adjust it by hand whenever you want.
Overall very impressed.
Pain, Blood, and Bruises, then Fun! Fun! Fun!

I bought this late last summer and at first did a certain amount of bruising and bleeding before getting used to it. The snow has melted sufficiently here now that I broke it out again from its winter hibernation. It seems like taking the winter off has settled whatever issues I had staying upright before and I'm riding the muni with confidence and trying new stuff all the time w/o anxiety. The brain and body adapt I suppose. I must admit it's great fun mastering the thing and feeling comfortable all the time like one does on a bike.
One thing that initially may have been a problem for me was the nimbus gel seat. I never felt good on that thing with numbness issues and chaffing in the groin. Just too much scoop for me. I think I also got hung up on the seat a few times trying to bail. One time I ended up hung on the seat then came straight down on top of the uni which bent one of the cranks, broke a pedal, and put the wheel severely out of true. That hurt! But I bought new cranks--170s instead of the stock 150s, a Kris Holm Freeride seat, and new pedals and now the ride is dialed for me. So if I had to do it all over again I'd order it with the KH seat and the KH 137/165 spirit cranks (which I'll probably still end up getting). I can spin the 170s but it takes a lot of concentration and its not very efficient. But the longer cranks are so nice for controlling that 29" wheel in the rough. The KH 137/165 cover the gambit like two cranks in one for fast-smooth and slow-rough respectively.
BTW, I think the Maxxis Ardent is a great tire. Part of me wishes I could fit the Surly 3" knard tire in the frame but the Ardent is not bad at all. It's got plenty of volume, is not too heavy, and rolls nicely. It's a great all around tire. Likewise the Nimbus 29" Muni is a great all-around muni. It's a jack of all trades, master of none. But if you want a do-it-all muni this is a great way to go.
Also, if you live in hilly terrain (like I do) consider the disc brake model b/c this one is not set up to retrofit a disc brake easily. I may go w/ maguras or perhaps get another muni w/ a disc brake for the mountains. But even w/o the brake this muni is fun fun fun!
Awesome & reliable

I now have about two months of nonstop riding on this muni. I love the frame color. I bought it with a KH freeride saddle and use 138mm cranks on it (I recommend this set up for cross country riding). on the plus side, it gets me noticed on the trail! In the rough stuff, it is a much more comfortable ride than smaller wheel. The Ardent tire will not fail in the traction department. I found that 45 psi pressure was ideal for me (i'm 180lbs). I dont need breaks so its not part of my set-up. On the negative side: is also the tire choice. It is heavy (for cross country) and, riding with too much tire pressure will have you fighting the muni to keep it on the center of the tire. if you ride hard pack and lots of switchbacks get a lighter and faster riding tire/tube combo. You will see the difference.
All in all this muni rocks! I feel like i don't need any other muni.
