New quax 36: first 36-er unicycle for me

Just taken delivery of a Quax Luxus Marathon 36-er

Had many doubts as I live in a hilly area and suspect that the 36-er isn't going to be able to tackle some of the hills. Up to now I've been happy riding, first a 24x3 (nimbus), then a quax 26 and found them very suitable for the terrain round here.

The Quax 36 looks v. nice- just finished putting it together, and will take it out for a bit of a try later on this afternoon.

I'm pretty sure I'll end up ordering some 160/165/170mm cranks as it's come with the stock 145mm, and, though they're fine on my 26er, I doubt they'll give me the level of control and hill descending ability I'll be wanting (the 36-er is a brakeless model).

Been back and forth on getting a 36-er for several years now, but it hit me that there's no chance I'm going to leave this mortal coil without having a good go on one

Figured that, in the worst case scenario of me just not getting on with a 36-er, I could sell it on so I shouldn't be massively out of pocket.

Inital thoughts on handling it when putting it together were that it's less intimidating than I imagined, though, having read the many 36-er accounts on here, I will be treating it with respect- on the 26-er I never wear a helmet, but definitly will on the 36-er, plus maybe some elbow pads etc.
