Hello, I have been looking into getting a Muni lately. I currently own the Avenir 20" muni. It’s great and all, but I would really like two or three more things. First, I want a bigger wheel. I’m thinking a 26" since I rode on a 24 inch muni that a friend let me borrow and I felt a little higher gear would be perfect. Also, I think I need a disc brake. My legs get tired going downhill on my 20" so I feel I should get a good brake on my new muni. I have also decided I want KH sprite cranks for the multi pedal holds. I have also had crank problems in the past. Other than those reasons, it’s just small things that I would want upgraded from my current 20".
Looking at the municycles on unicycle.com, I have noticed that there are four main munis to choose from:
I have already decided not to get the Nimbus Oregon because I don’t care too much for it’s fat tire and price. I will also be getting the Nimbus with a disk brake using KH sprite cranks if I decide to get that.
Now, back to the question. I want to know what the difference between the Nimbus, Nimbus Oracle, and the Kris Holm.
Here are some of my main questions:
Does weight really matter? Is the difference really that big between the 17 pound nimbus and the 12 pound Kris Holm?
Will durability really matter? I’m really not going to go that extreme, I probably won’t do drops bigger than 6-8 feet.
Other than that, I really can’t think of any more big questions.
I would prefer people that have ridden a variety of municycles to answer.
Thanks for the help.
