  • 2009 Nimbus 26" Muni Frame with Factory Brake Mounts!

    I just got my new frame back from the powder coater, it is soooo awesome!!

    Essentially it is the same as the Nimbus II, but wider at the crown and now they come with brake mounts

    Quality and materials appear to be the same as my other two Nimbus frames. Mine came with a factory chrome, I wanted a color so I chose "safety yellow". I had mine powdered locally, but apparently you can have your frame painted by Nimbus for relatively little $$.

    With a Gazzolodi 2.6 mounted on a Double Wide rim, I have a solid 1/2" to spare on either side and plenty of space between the tire and the crown; a 3" Duro or Gazz will fit sure!

    Apparently the new frames come standard on the 24"/26" Muni, so ask fr one if you're looking to get a new muni.

    Here she is:

    Nimbus 26" Muni Frame
    Nimbus Isis Hub
    Ringle Double Wide Rim
    Gazz 2.6
    KH Moments 165mm
    KH Seatpost Rail-Less
    KH Street Gel Seat
    Salsa Seat Post Clamp
    Snafu Pedals
    Magura Hydraulic Brake, Braided Steel Lines, and KH Spooner

        The 2.6 Gazz is ~2.5" at the widest.
        The 2009 Nimbus frame is 3.5"

        I'd say that any 3" tire will fit with at least 1/4" clearance on either side.

        They did a nice job on the brake boss set up, just enough room for the brakes on a doublewide rim, yet still abhle to run a narrower rim and brake.

          Lose the quick release. Other than that very nice.

            thats a nice uni you have there, but how come you have an 09 model in 2008? Do you have a time machine? If so whats in store for us next year... any new KH's

              Wow, that's a beauty! I'm glad to know that there's an inexpensive 26er frame now with brake bosses, as my 14 year old son is riding a very similar setup (same gazz jr tire, but with 140s!) and would like a little help on the downhills sometimes.

                I think that that will be my next upgrade for my MUni along with finally installing the break that I purchased last fall.

                Once that is done the Tire, and tube will be the only things stock left on my unicycle. mmmm, then I could build up my old one again with all the spare bits I have

                  I dont think i've ever been quite so excited about seeing brake mounts before.

                  Think my 24" will be getting transformed into a 26" sometime soon.

                  Great stuff

                    This is great news! I have to order that frame.

                    Beautiful uni Ben!

                      I was thinking of a 26" muni for my next one once I get more proficient with my 20" Schwinn. That looks nice.

                              It was a great idea to have a 26" frame with brake mounts finally. I guess the only two out of box choices now are the Nimbus frame and the Surly frame.
