My uncle owns a bike shop, so when i told him that i wanted to get into unicycling he showed me a couple, and i picked one. i wanted to ride offroad and possibly trials so i picked the 20" with 2.5" wheel. it doesnt say anything on the fork but the rims are alexrims DX 32’s. here’s a picture of it. could you take a look and possibly identify it for me?
Hey! did you buy that in Canada from a bike shop? The local one here sells them (2.5" luna tire, that incredibly crappy quick adjust, alex dx rim, 125(127?) mm square taper cranks, and plastic pedals), for 200$. They’re pretty decent unicycles once you replace the seat and the seatpost clamp.
fake edit: okay, it did come from a bike shop.
if it’s the uni I think it is, it’s from a noname supplier in Quebec. they also sell 5’ giraffes and a really really crappy 20" uni, but in both cases Torker is a way better value. Your uni is pretty awesome when the seat clamp and seat are replaced though.
I was gonna say bedford light duty. looks like one. Exact same setup as mine except for the cranks and hub and pedals. But i wasn’t to sure. Well, i’m stumped. Lol, the big ol’ fat tire and little tiny taper cranks kinda crack me up.
I dunno about it being a Nimbus. I’m no expert and maybe the angle of the picture is throwing me… But the crown of the Nimbus looks like it has steeper angles on the crown between the seat tube and the fork legs than tyler’s.
Seriously though, that looks like the Nimbus II (non extra-wide frame) i.e. constant cross-section of upright, uprights capped with welded in plates rather than plastic plugs. Looks like Lasco cranks, if it isn’t a Nimbus it looks as good as, apart from the seatpost clamp.
Two of my friends own unis just like this, it’s not a nimbus trials. It’s an off brand Canadian uni, with parts borrowed from god knows where. They come from one of the standard suppliers to most bike shops, at least in my area.
I have a unicyle which is similar to yours except that it’s a 24" one. Bought it in Singapore for a little more than 120 USD. Some of my unicyling friends there said that it’s a Yuni, but I’m not sure where they got that name from. Does anyone know?
My 24" unicycle was made by a Taiwanese company, which if I’m not mistaken, actually makes the Coker too. You can see some of their own models at this link:
