I vote for the Surly
I built up a conundrum with the following components
Kris holm seat
Kris Holm Seatpost
Kris Holm Moment Cranks
Large Marge Rim
Specialized S-works Evil Twin Roller (26X2.7)
crank brothers 5050 pedals (not delivered yet when pic was taken)
It is such an awesome unicycle - it is a little heavy - but worth its weight in gold - because it just makes me want to ride all of the time.
Plus they are fun to build and customize. What I am saying is - if the Surly excites you, (like it does me) buy one - then get the Kris Holm too - it's only money, and it gets you off the couch.

I second the Surly vote.
To me, the 3 inch tire makes the Surly a better option. I finally agree, after much reluctance, that the 4 inch tire is not so good for muni, but the 3 inch tire with a large marge rim is an awesome setup. I am a lot faster than people on 24 inch yet the bigger tire can handle some pretty extreme downhill. It feels very stable in very unstable terrain and I can outclimb most people. I run the Duro 3 inch in the summer and the Conundrum 4 inch in the winter and when I ride the sand washes and dunes of S. Colorado and Utah. It makes for fairly versatile setup.
I think the Surly with a 3 inch tire is pretty close in diameter to a 29 inch.
That being said, the smaller tire on the 29er and the aluminum frame makes it a lighter option and probably a faster uni on less extreme terrain. It all depends where your muni will take you.
