    --------------------------
    UDC Sweden recomended this as an adult learner - collecting dust now.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKBqLJTIKdc)

    Qu-Ax Cross 29 (NOK 2 000)
    --------------------------------
    Felt I needed something between 24 and 36 (wich was my ultimate goal). I later chopped down the frame to make it fit my oldest kid. Collecting dust now, but my youngest kid might need it in a couple of years.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW8awg6vkrk)

    Nimbus Nightrider Impulse Disc 36 (NOK 6 000)
    -----------------------------------------------------
    36'er was my reason to get into unicyling. This was the coolest one on the market in my opinion. Still my main 36'er.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgzlRMp4L6k)

    KH 26 (NOK 4000)
    --------------------
    Maybe try Muni? Yes, let's get a KH26. Timoteusmunk uses it when he is visiting Norway. Otherwise collecting dust.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tZfxrJh4eM)

    Schlumpf hub (NOK 10 000)
    -------------------------------
    I really wanted to try this, and it would also be great to get to my trail head on a schlumped KH26. Collecting dust now, but I might put it in a 29'er later.

    KH 29 (NOK 4 000)
    ---------------------
    For winter riding with a studded tyre. Wanted something better than the Qu-Ax even though the Qu-Ax was just fine. I use it mainly in the winter.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYOOO5U0o_8)

    Dodger 12 (NOK 900)
    ------------------------
    Got it for my oldest kid, but none of my kids managed to learn to ride on this one. I got a few videos out of it. Fun to ride.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6T0YwrIy-0)

    Only One 16 (NOK 700)
    --------------------------
    Both kids learned on this. Easier to ride than the Dodger. Other kids use it from time to time.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38hgdIFsNhs)

    KH 20 (NOK 3 500)
    ----------------------
    Wanted something I could bring with me on holidays. The kids use it too. (I have two sets with seatposts/seats)
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gulMh7V8ags)

    Oracle 24 (NOK 4 000)
    --------------------------
    Wanted a smaller wheel and a wider tyre for muni than the KH26. Collecting dust, but it's back up for the bigger 26'er brother
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwQ3x53plIQ)

    KH 36 (NOK 3 200)
    ---------------------
    I've had som problems with the Nimbus 36, and therfore needed a back up. Hate being without a 36'er. Got the KH for a great price. Timoteusmunk uses it too.

    Oracle 26 (NOK 4 000)
    -------------------------
    I like the Oracle 24, but wanted something bigger. Put on a Surly Knard . Great uni.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOnKks7o9tE)

    Unknown 20 (NOK 150)
    --------------------------
    Second hand. Got this for my youngest kid. Painted it purple and put on a pink tyre. She loves it.

    Nimbus Hatchet fat 26 (NOK 9 000)
    ---------------------------------------
    Couldn't resist. No dust, only mud on this one.
    (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI9JaQMb43I)


    Total: NOK 52 750 (prices are from memory)
    ============================

    I have also bought two more unicycles as gifts to my nephews, which means I have bought 15 unicyles in six years.
    Qu-Ax 20 -red hub (NOK 600)
    ---------------------------------
    I needed another 20" for my youngest kid, so we can all go muni together. Second hand.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUkfzbu3eYA

    KH 20 (NOK 300)
    -------------------
    Second hand. Picked it up today. Older model, scratched but otherwise in good condition. Saddle, seatclamp, pedals not original. The reason for buying this was the price: $ 35

      I think my fleet once peaked at 13 but now I have:
      • 20" Nimbus 2 with Hookworm tyre (horrible tyre)
      • 24" Nimbus 2 with Hookworm tyre (unpleasant tyre)
      • KH24 Muni - fairly early model with those strange tapering hollow cranks.
      • Pashley 26" Muni with Holy Roller tyre.
      • 28" skinny wheel in Nimbus 1 frame. (The Bacon Slicer)
      • KH29
      • KH36


      I have commuted on all 7 at least once each since Christmas.

      I also have a Nimbus 24" ultimate wheel.

      Also and old Nimbus 36 wheel and frame, and far too many old pairs of cranks, spare seats and posts and stuff.

        Club "24 (Nimbus 24 with Muni Tire)
        However, once I can free-mount, I'll be looking at a Nimbus 27.5 , and ultimately a 36 of some kind!

          Way to go. You will find the 36 easiest to ride, but hardest to mount. Lovely graceful feeling.

            @UniMyra you really need to put this schlumpf hub on your 29er, I personally had it on a 26er in the first place with different 26" tires then the knard, and after that I built a g29 directly with a 29x3 knard on it and found this g29 much more stable, predictable and also faster than the 26" version.
            Sometimes I imagine myself putting it on a 36" uni, no doubt I would do it if I had two geared hubs, cause it would allow me to have a 36x150 uni that can also go fast and far, but that keeps freemounting easier and Muni/very slow riding/uphill/urban conditions managable.
            Never tried a g36 though.

              I mostly have a big pile of parts that morph into different unicycle configurations depending on what kind of unicycling I anticipate doing in the near future.

              At the moment the unicycles I have assembled are:
              geared 26 - Schlumpf hub, KH29 frame, studded tire, Speedway rim, etc - for commuting
              36" Nimbus Nightfox - rebuilt with a disk hub, frankentire, and bike seat - in storage till the snow melts
              19" trials - Koxx frame, Nimbus hub, KH rim, custom 110/137 cranks. Left it at the fire base for a friend to learn, now it's sitting in a locker 650 km away.
              20" learner - Basically a Nimbus II - lent it to my little cousin, not sure if it's getting any use.
              My 26" muni is not currently assembled, but all in one bag. It's pretty standard with a Nimbus wheel and KH frame

              Wheels not in frames
              Geared 32
              Fat 26 - need to swap out the hub to fit in Nightfox frame -> eventually to go in a Hatchet
              29x50mm - would make a great 29x3 wheel

              and a few extra frames saddles, cranks etc.
              My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. - Jack Layton

                24" Nimbus muni, orange (I don't use it very much, because it is heavy)
                26" QU-AX muni with aluminium frame (not so heavy!), white + extra tyre for road
                29" rather old UDC for road, chrome with rusty spots
                The heavy 24" muni is sold half a year ago. That has given a little more room in the shed.

                Best regards,

                  Updating my list as I did build a 24" Muni which resides in the US with my 29" Muni. So currently:
                  • KH 24" 2012 currently with a first generation Schlumpf Hub and Magura brakes,
                  • KH 29" Road Uni with 125mm cranks,
                  • QU'AX 36" with 125/150mm cranks, disc brake,
                  • Nimbus 24" Basketball Uni with 125mm cranks,
                  • Nimbus 20" Equinox Freestyle Uni with 100mm cranks,
                  • FranKHenstein 29" Muni with Nimbus hub, Impact Seat post and 125mm cranks, US resident,
                  • 24" Muni with 150mm cranks (shared with above muni) made from parts I had, just bought a Nimbus rim and a Specialized tire.


                  and past:
                  • Nimbus II 24" Muni with 150mm cranks, back in the saddle uni! Bought in 2011 in the same shop as NoName below, sold when KH24" came for Xmas,
                  • Kahero 20" basic uni, bought to work on beginner's skills, sold a couple of months later when bought Nimbus 20",
                  • Impact 19" Trials, 140mm Eiffel cranks, sold because gathering dust, running out of space, and needing an excuse to finance the Schlumpf hub,
                  • NoName Chrome Shitty 20", bought in 1996, first attempt at uni, rode but never proficiently, disappeared in a garage fire circa 2000.


                  Future?
                  • Spare (bin parts?) Muni for the Alps, at the parents...

                              -----------------------------------------------------

                              UPDATE: KH 26 is missing more and more pieces. I still count it as one unicycle.

                              Schlumpf hub (NOK 10 000)
                              -------------------------------
                              I really wanted to try this, and it would also be great to get to my trail head on a schlumped KH26. Collecting dust now, but I might put it in a 29'er later.

                              UPDATE: In use in a 29 guni

                              KH 29 (NOK 4 000)
                              ---------------------
                              For winter riding with a studded tyre. Wanted something better than the Qu-Ax even though the Qu-Ax was just fine. I use it mainly in the winter.

                              Got it for my oldest kid, but none of my kids managed to learn to ride on this one. I got a few videos out of it. Fun to ride.

                              Both kids learned on this. Easier to ride than the Dodger. Other kids use it from time to time.

                              Wanted a smaller wheel and a wider tyre for muni than the KH26. Collecting dust, but it's back up for the bigger 26'er brother

                              ============================

                              I have also bought two more unicycles as gifts to my nephews, which means I have bought 15 unicyles in six years.

                              The list continues:

                              Qu-Ax 20 -red hub (NOK 600)
                              ---------------------------------
                              I needed another 20" for my youngest kid, so we can all go muni together. Second hand.

                              -------------------
                              Second hand. Picked it up today. Older model, scratched but otherwise in good condition. Saddle, seatclamp, pedals not original. The reason for buying this was the price: $ 35

                              UPDATE:

                              Unknown 20 (NOK 100)

                              Second hand. Crap. Used it in a video:

                              Wanted to try a geared unicycle again. Built it myself. Mostly KH parts.

                              I ordered it one hour ago for the kids. To good a deal to let it pass. (51% off on Black Friday)
