i’ve got a pashley muni 20", and i was wondering whether it is possible to fit a monty or onza trials rim and tyre setup into the frame. As far as i know, these combinations are 2.5" wide, but i wanted to check whether they’d fit b4 buying anything
Yes, you can fit a Monty tire in a 20" Pashley frame.
Personally, I think the Pashley trials unicycle is the best looking one, although I don’t think its worth the extra money if your buying it new. Since you already have the frame, though, I say go for it.
You will have to get some special tools to remove the bearings from the lollipops, and possibly to reinstall the new ones. You may have to get a bike store to do it, or just send the frame to unicycle.com and get them to install the wheelset.
Hope this helps

If you dissassemble the 20 inch rim and spokes and then rebuild the it
with a Monty rim, you wont need to pull the bearings off.
P.S. you’ll need 36 166/167mm 13G or 12G spokes or 14G with eyelets.
