-KH spooner (I really recommend this one for long and/or steep downhills)
-Nokian Gazzaloddi 24x3
-KH moment 125/150 cranks (I usually have the 137 on though)
And as you can see I stripped the frame on this one too.

Last pic shows the two brothers together.
Your both Muni are awsome! Just wondering, how fun is the 26" Guni in high gear mode in Muni? I should be very cool, and very fast!

The 26 in high gear is great fun and fast! When going downhill without a brake it feels kind of strange in high gear though. When it's steepish, that is. You need a lot of braking power in your legs. And uphills in high gear can get quite exausting at times, but then it's so cool to be able to shift down by the flick of a button. I love it, only need the brakes installed now for some longer downhill stuff. And then I guess I can just cruise in high gear downhill with the brakes. Should be great!

Munirocks, I really love your guni. Having a 26inch schlumpf is pretty much like having the best all around uni. The stripped frames look awesome too. I'm definitely doing that to my muni soon.

Andy yes that trail in my pic is insane. In that pic there's a 15+ foot cliff of the side of that little bridge. I'll post more pics of that trail later.

Hey, thanks! That was what I figured when I had to decide what wheel size the Schlumpf should go into. And I don't regret my choice. Maybe if I lived in the Alps or so a geared 24" would be more versatile, but the 26" is perfect for most of my rides. Especially with that big phat tire.

If you want to strip your muni, I recommend using paint stripper. I found out the hard way... My 24" was done without it and it was a real PITA. With paint stripper it was so much easier.

On the loaner Nimbus MUni's I have here the pedals appear to be the generic/home brand:

Definitely, I already stripped my KH longneck with some really nice paint stripper I bought. I have more than half left and should use it since the bottle says not to keep it more than six months. My muni frame is starting to look like crap so there's really no reason why I shouldn't do it. I'll post pics once I'm back from Canada and have finished the deed.
