Those aluminium/allow cranks used on the Nimbus X are a bit noisy, I think it's due to the fact that they are a different metal to the steel hub.

I have a 20" Nimbus X and so does someone else at juggling club, and our cranks were creaky and noisy at the beginning too. Give them a good tighten (they will creak as you tighten them further) and the noise will reduce, and whenever the noise comes back just tighten a little more.

I've been assured that eventually the creaking will disappear although that is yet to happen on mine. Do remember that on the page that details the cranks here (http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=754) it does say they are "not suitable for heavy jumping".

Oops, If that creaking was just the cranks that is my bad, i thought it was lose spokes so i took it to my LBS to have the wheel trued. Probaly gonna cost me $20 to $30.

Besides thats mine looks pretty solid, its at the shope now I also had the shope put some BMX petles on and look for a good 24 off road tire. I am hoping it will make a good Muni. Do you think it will hold up to the trails and moutians or not?

I just recently put a 24 x 2.5 mountain tire and some new off-road cranks (http://www.unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=170) on my uni and it seems to work very well for MUni riding.
