    Hi Mike,

    Could you please post the box dimensions and weight, as well as your zip code. I would be interested in seeing how much this is going to cost to ship.

    Thanks

      Also, you may want to reconsider getting the Nimbus underseat touring bar, it gets loose with use and is a PITA to adjust or tightern as it requires removing the seat from the post. The KH Touring Bar works very well, is lighter, stronger, and just as adjustable as the Nimbus without reducing seat clearance.
      Slighty off-topic, but I would like to chime in here. I find the opposite of what Ben has said. I have both the KH bar and the Nimbus Shadow handle, and overall find the shadow handle to be more sturdy. I originally ran the KH bar on my 36er, and ran it fully extended for road riding. No matter how tightly I screwed the bolts, the bar would always move up when I pulled on it and whenever I pushed on it it would move down. I now run it on my muni with a shorter extension, which works great. On my Shadow bar, the handle always stays where it is set to. True, the bolt can come loose which is a PITA, but it has only happened to me once and that was when I didn't use locktite. After that, I retightened the bolt using locktite, and it has not come loose road riding or riding muni, and I am 200 pounds with gear and not exactly easy on my equipment. For most situations I prefer the Shadow bar. YMMV.

      Good luck with your sale, sorry for the thread drift!

        I'm so disappointed that shipping to Vancouver Island was too much. I was able to get a brand new KH36 for only $100 more.
        This is a really sweet looking unicycle and in great shape. I'm sure someone (within the US) will snap it up quickly.

          Wow, lots of thras drift, I guess I'm not helping

          Twin hoop frames are harder to build and align with bearing holders, esp with longer frame legs, probably aggravated by being built in a factory overeas, which is why Nimbus went to a simpler single leg design.

          That said, I love the twin hoop designs, both my 36/32 and my 29/26 are Nimbus twin hoop frames. This is a sweet uni, kinda suprised no one has snapped it up yet. I may have to bother Bert (upd in slc) as he needs one of these really bad!

          As to the handle thing, to each his own, but I have seen the Nimibus underseat handles loosen from a UPD, and having only one bolt securing the seat, they are more prone to loosening and breaking, and looseing or failure is not something you want on the trail. Also, the seat and bar adjust at the same time, so you have less adjustability overall than the KH.

          At the OP, hold on tight, someone will buy that uni. I'll give some buddies a hollar and see if I can drum up some business
