    Geared is better I think. If you're too tired to ride in high gear you can still ride 1:1. Been there.

      My franken 32"



      It's on it's 3rd tire now. Unfortunately the new tire is a tad to tall for the Triton frame.

        Maybe? .... but I think the longer cranks and additional weight of the schlumpf is a bit of an issue...... possibly when I have more experience I will think differently?

        Incidentally I just weighed the G32.... its 8.78kg complete

          Weight of the Schlumpf is essentially non-rotational. Of course, strictly speaking the hub does rotate but the weight is at the hub so you won't notice its momentum. And the additional weight compared to a non-geared hub is not that much. Long cranks are IMHO not an issue either, on the contrary: you might like them if you're tired, so I think their length is an advantage by that time.

          That's light!

              I wonder what this means. Could it be that a 32 will show up in the Nimbus line before long?

                That's amazing!
                I wonder if they're going to start carrying the wheels as well.
                (Personally, I really like my 32".) (However, I've never ridden a 29r, I may like that just as well.) (Perhaps I just tend to gravitate towards odd stuff.)

                  That'd be cool if they came out with a Nimbus version. I'd much rather see unicycle companies invest their time in 32" than 650b.

                    Josh explained at the Unicon that he could find a 32 tyre (it's this one) but not a rim, but rim a not really an issue to build for Roger with his Dominator profile already used for 24/26/29/36 rims; we just probably need to wait some information from Roger for a new 32" Dominator 36H rim !

                      The matching Kent wheel can be used for unis, but they are not ideal. Not as wide as most unicycle wheels, and 48 spokes. So I can see why Josh made that statement. Still, they are useable, if you're willing to work at it a little, and don't plan any hard-core off-road stuff with them. I use mine strictly for road riding, and no complaints. (And it easily handles small stuff like going off curbs, etc.)

                        I laced my G32 as a 36hole and it works fine..... I have a fixed 32 as well which I used the nimbus 48 hole hub

                          Or a 32 option for the Nightfox.

                            I think you do: to begin with, you ride a unicycle!

                              That would be a perfect application!

                                Didn't someone already make a 32'er out of an Oregon frame, making a sort of miniature Nightrider Pro? UDC could very easily get on that Though a mini Nightfox would be great too!
