  • recommend a tire for my Nimbus 29

    The Duro 29x2.35 tire blew out on my Nimbus 29 which I have had about 1 year. I ride about 20 miles on city streets and sidewalks each week. Unicycle.com does not have the tire that came on my unicycle. So I either need to source one elsewhere or pick a different tire. I weigh 200 lbs and ride at slow to medium speed with no bigger drops than the curb. Any recommendations?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    P.S. I live in California

    If you are riding exclusively on the street, the Marathon Supreme is a good choice.

          Do you think the 28 x 2.35 Big Apple would be good?

          I can get for $40 shipping included from Amazon: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Schwalbe-Bicycle-28x2-35-Allround-Beaded/dp/B00277K9SM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1306966999&sr=8-1"]Amazon.com: Schwalbe Big Apple HS 338 Fatty Bicycle Tire (28x2.35, Allround Wire Beaded, Reflex): Sports & Outdoors[/ame]

            I much prefer the 29x2.0" version of the Big Apple to the 2.35" version; the 2.0" performs much better on cambered roads. Other than that, the 2.35" is a fine tire.
