I bought a 24 x 2.7 Maxxis High Roller the other day and went to fit it on my KH 24 wheel. I noticed one of the spokes had broken - the wheel was creaking recently so that explains that.
Because of the spoke I decided to fit the new tyre on a Nimus 24 wheel that I had with a Halo Twin Rail tyre on it. I was a bit concerned because the last time I fitted the Nimbus wheel/halo combination I spent the whole of my regular 3.6 mile morning ride with my right shoulder skewed round and leading the way - I just couldn’t get comfortable and balanced. So I was thinking that the problem might be that the Nimbus rim is significantly narrower than the KH 47mm rim.
Anyway, the High Roller/nimbus combination was fab. The unicycle felt light, quiet and responsive; a lot less heavy than with the stock KH wheel and, now well worn, 3" Duro tyre. I really enjoyed my ride this morning - just thought I’d share.
While I’m here: I have a KH20 and KH24. A KH/schlumpf hub will cost me the same as a KH26 and KH29. What would you do, buy the geared hub for my KH24 or buy two more Kris Holm machines for my uni-stable?
