After riding around my local trails for a few months, I’ve determined that a larger unicycle (currently have a 24") would be ideal for my uses. The trails are single track, with technical sections, but also have parts where I would like to go faster, and the extra wheel size would help with rolling over obstacles. I’m thinking of getting a Nimbus Oracle, but I had a few questions.
For the 29", how is it at climbing hills? Obviously this would vary with rider skill, but for steeper sections with lots of roots, would it be a lot harder than a 24" or would it be manageable?
Also, I’m only 5’6”, so would a 29” be too large to handle in the technical parts? Would maybe a 27.5 be better? I don’t really want a 26 because I think it will be too close in size to the one that I have.
Lastly, what is the actual diameter of the wheels of the 27.5 and 29 oracles? I keep reading in various places that the actual diameter of some unicycles with larger wheels (the 27.5 has a 3" wheel) are larger than it says…
