How many and what kind?

I'm curious as to how many and what kind of unicycles everyone owns. I have three. A 20" Oxford on which I learned to ride in 1975, a 24" Miyata that I bought in college in 1984, and a 36" Coker that I bought in 2009.

What's in your stable?

Easier for me to say "many" and nothing with gears or a chain but most of the others.

The collection so far:
16" Zepher that the boys learned to ride on.
19" Nimbus trials with cut down frame for 8 year old.
19" Impact Reagent currently with Nimbus trials frame for 10 year old but loaned out to a friend of a friend.
2 x 20" Torker LXes for the boys to ride in the gym at school.
24" Torker LX loaned out to a friend.
24" Nimbus II for walking the dog.
24" Nimbus Muni with frame cut down for 10 year old.
24" Nimbus Muni frame with KH bent wheel set loaned out to a friend of a friend.
26" Torker LX that I learned on now with the frame cut down for 10 year olds road uni.
26" Nimbus Oregon muni.
36" custom black Nimbus Oracle
Piece of junk 5' giraffe uni with frame cut down to fit 8 year old.
24" home made (by someone else) ultimate wheel.

Next on the list of wants:
29" road uni (too big a speed difference between the 26" and 36" for my ten year old and I to ride together)
I would like to make a 36" ultimate wheel.
36" nightfox when my 10 year old gets a little taller but mostly stronger.
And most importantly way more time to ride.

Wow. That is quite a collection of "silly contraptions". How long have you been unicycling?

19" Nimbus Equinox custom build
29" Nimbus Oracle muni custom build (Spirits and external disc)
29" Schlumpf first gen with original Schlumpf frame - road tyre
20" Nimbus giraffe

plus a 26" wheel and frame, I think I have all the bits needed to build that up

19" impact athmos, 24" nimbus 2 muni, 29" home built nimbus muni and a 36" nimbus oracle. Next on the list will be a 27.5. I was considering building a 27.5 wheel with a 2.8" Nobby Nic and putting it in the 29" frame but I'm not sure if it'll fit so I'll probably just save a bit longer and buy a complete uni.
