Looking at the SUN website, I found this listed for their 26 & 28 unicycles:

Wheel / Tire Size: 26’’ x 36H x 14G (20 x 1.95’’)
Wheel / Tire Size: 700c x 36H x 14G (700 x 50c)

Can someone please translate? 26" is the wheel diameter, right? but 36H, 14G, 700c, 50c… huh? What’s the c? Can’t be cm or circumference??

And how does the (20 X 1.95) relate to the wheel size?

Maybe this should be obvious to me, but I’m a relative noobie just learning about the different types of uni’s and their specs

The first entry appears to have a typo that confuses things. I’m pretty sure it should read:

Wheel / Tire Size: 26’’ x 36H x 14G (26 x 1.95’’)

Which means that the wheel has a 26" rim with 36, 14 gauge spokes.

700c is a rim and tire size. See this for more: http://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html

36H=36 hole rim. This means that the rim has 36 holes for spokes.
14G=14 gauge. This describes the thickness of the spokes.
20 X 1.95 usually means a 20" wheel that is 1.95" wide. It’s strange that it says both 26" and 20".
700c and 50c relate to the size of the wheel, but I’m not sure what unit of measurement “c” is.

I rechecked their website and they have (20 X 1.95) listed for 3 different wheel sizes. I agree it must be a typo. So apparently the 700x50c is mm which converts to 27.55 x 1.97 inches… The c through me off, still don’t get it, but doesn’t seem important.

Thanks for the link, big help.
