I started unicycling last summer on a Nimbus Muni 24, with the goal of graduating to a fat tire and selling the 24 at some point.

After adding the Hatchet, I not only kept the 24, but added an Equinox Street so I could learn tricks easier.

Now with three unis, I can see myself adding a 32 or 36" at some point so I can do some road work, dang these things are addictive

I have too many unicycles, Here is the list with prices and why I got them:

Trainer 24 (NOK 1 300)
--------------------------
UDC Sweden recomended this as an adult learner - collecting dust now.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKBqLJTIKdc)

Qu-Ax Cross 29 (NOK 2 000)
--------------------------------
Felt I needed something between 24 and 36 (wich was my ultimate goal). I later chopped down the frame to make it fit my oldest kid. Collecting dust now, but my youngest kid might need it in a couple of years.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW8awg6vkrk)

Nimbus Nightrider Impulse Disc 36 (NOK 6 000)
-----------------------------------------------------
36'er was my reason to get into unicyling. This was the coolest one on the market in my opinion. Still my main 36'er.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgzlRMp4L6k)

KH 26 (NOK 4000)
--------------------
Maybe try Muni? Yes, let's get a KH26. Timoteusmunk uses it when he is visiting Norway. Otherwise collecting dust.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tZfxrJh4eM)

Schlumpf hub (NOK 10 000)
-------------------------------
I really wanted to try this, and it would also be great to get to my trail head on a schlumped KH26. Collecting dust now, but I might put it in a 29'er later.

KH 29 (NOK 4 000)
---------------------
For winter riding with a studded tyre. Wanted something better than the Qu-Ax even though the Qu-Ax was just fine. I use it mainly in the winter.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYOOO5U0o_8)

Dodger 12 (NOK 900)
------------------------
Got it for my oldest kid, but none of my kids managed to learn to ride on this one. I got a few videos out of it. Fun to ride.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6T0YwrIy-0)

Only One 16 (NOK 700)
--------------------------
Both kids learned on this. Easier to ride than the Dodger. Other kids use it from time to time.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38hgdIFsNhs)

KH 20 (NOK 3 500)
----------------------
Wanted something I could bring with me on holidays. The kids use it too. (I have two sets with seatposts/seats)
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gulMh7V8ags)

Oracle 24 (NOK 4 000)
--------------------------
Wanted a smaller wheel and a wider tyre for muni than the KH26. Collecting dust, but it's back up for the bigger 26'er brother
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwQ3x53plIQ)

KH 36 (NOK 3 200)
---------------------
I've had som problems with the Nimbus 36, and therfore needed a back up. Hate being without a 36'er. Got the KH for a great price. Timoteusmunk uses it too.

Oracle 26 (NOK 4 000)
-------------------------
I like the Oracle 24, but wanted something bigger. Put on a Surly Knard . Great uni.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uOnKks7o9tE)

Unknown 20 (NOK 150)
--------------------------
Second hand. Got this for my youngest kid. Painted it purple and put on a pink tyre. She loves it.

Nimbus Hatchet fat 26 (NOK 9 000)
---------------------------------------
Couldn't resist. No dust, only mud on this one.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MI9JaQMb43I)


Total: NOK 52 750 (prices are from memory)
============================

I have also bought two more unicycles as gifts to my nephews, which means I have bought 15 unicyles in six years.

Impressive list

Makes me feel great to manage to keep the count low (just reached 4 full uni after 10 years -- not counting gifts)

That was a nice vid of the Nimbus Hatchet UniMyra. Norway does have a lot nicer nature than boring Denmark Im jealous at how easy it is for you to ride a little and hop and just ride on.

Nice Unimyra. It was nice to see the progression from start to now. I'm only starting out, so:

Nimbus Club 26"
Nimbus Oracle 26
Nimbus Trials 20"

This was in the first 4 months of riding. Injury has slowed the acquisitions, but I'm sure once I'm back at it, I'll start trying to keep up with you folks. Yes, one is enough... by that I mean one wheel for riding, clearly.

20" Torker LX
20" Nimbus Performer Giraffe
20" Sun XL fat Uni

The Sun XL is a super fun Uni, its similar to the Nimbus Purple Monster. I put an Origin8 Tsunami Fat tire on it with a bit more aggressive grip than the original tire, and it is a blast. Taking it with me to San Diego Next week, super excited to ride on the beach with it.

I've only got my two:
  • A 20" learner wheel of unknown brand. Gotta be decent quality, since I rode it for ~5 years, up until I got my...
  • Nimbus Oracle, 29", no handbrake. Rode it for a year, before it got stolen and I had to buy a replacement. It's now been just over a year for this one. Replaced the saddle with a KH Fusion Zero already, but might need to look at additional maintenance.

Probably gonna need to start riding my 20" and learning some tricks soonish; these past six years have been mostly spent on commuting to uni on uni.

And here's my stable, current:
  • KH 24" 2012 currently with a first generation Schlumpf Hub and Magura brakes,
  • KH 29" Road Uni with 125mm cranks,
  • QU'AX 36" with 125/150mm cranks, disc brake,
  • Nimbus 24" Basketball Uni with 125mm cranks,
  • Nimbus 20" Equinox Freestyle Uni with 100mm cranks,
  • FranKHenstein 29" Muni with Nimbus hub, Impact Seat post and 150mm cranks,

and past:
  • Nimbus II 24" Muni with 150mm cranks, back in the saddle uni! Bought in 2011 in the same shop as NoName below, sold when KH24" came for Xmas,
  • Kahero 20" basic uni, bought to work on beginner's skills, sold a couple of months later when bought Nimbus 20",
  • Impact 19" Trials, 140mm Eiffel cranks, sold because gathering dust, running out of space, and needing an excuse to finance the Schlumpf hub,
  • NoName Chrome Shitty 20", bought in 1996, first attempt at uni, rode but never proficiently, disappeared in a garage fire circa 2000.

Future?
  • 26" or 24" Muni to stay with the FrankenKH, USA resident...
  • Spare (bin parts?) Muni for the Alps, at the parents...

I have these:

20" QU-AX Luxus freestyle, chrome with green tyre
24" QU-AX standard for track racing, black + extra tyre for muni
24" Nimbus muni, orange (I don't use it very much, because it is heavy)
26" QU-AX muni with aluminium frame (not so heavy!), white + extra tyre for road
29" rather old UDC for road, chrome with rusty spots

Best regards,
Sanne

Now I can add one more to my list. This week I bought the 19" Qu-Ax Long neck Trials uni, since I didn't have any trials unis yet.
On the pic is also my 29" Nimbus. The big brother. Now I have 7 total.

It's on its way!
Got a 24" used KH frame, have a hub, spokes, saddle, cranks, pedals. So I ordered a rim and a tire - the new Specialized 24". Can't wait to get all the remaining parts... and then build and true the wheel.
