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.
Qu-Ax 20 -red hub (NOK 600)
---------------------------------
I needed another 20" for my youngest kid, so we can all go muni together. Second hand.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUkfzbu3eYA

KH 20 (NOK 300)
-------------------
Second hand. Picked it up today. Older model, scratched but otherwise in good condition. Saddle, seatclamp, pedals not original. The reason for buying this was the price: $ 35

I think my fleet once peaked at 13 but now I have:
  • 20" Nimbus 2 with Hookworm tyre (horrible tyre)
  • 24" Nimbus 2 with Hookworm tyre (unpleasant tyre)
  • KH24 Muni - fairly early model with those strange tapering hollow cranks.
  • Pashley 26" Muni with Holy Roller tyre.
  • 28" skinny wheel in Nimbus 1 frame. (The Bacon Slicer)
  • KH29
  • KH36

I have commuted on all 7 at least once each since Christmas.

I also have a Nimbus 24" ultimate wheel.

Also and old Nimbus 36 wheel and frame, and far too many old pairs of cranks, spare seats and posts and stuff.

Right now I have just one

Club "24 (Nimbus 24 with Muni Tire)
However, once I can free-mount, I'll be looking at a Nimbus 27.5 , and ultimately a 36 of some kind!

Way to go. You will find the 36 easiest to ride, but hardest to mount. Lovely graceful feeling.

@UniMyra you really need to put this schlumpf hub on your 29er, I personally had it on a 26er in the first place with different 26" tires then the knard, and after that I built a g29 directly with a 29x3 knard on it and found this g29 much more stable, predictable and also faster than the 26" version.
Sometimes I imagine myself putting it on a 36" uni, no doubt I would do it if I had two geared hubs, cause it would allow me to have a 36x150 uni that can also go fast and far, but that keeps freemounting easier and Muni/very slow riding/uphill/urban conditions managable.
Never tried a g36 though.

I mostly have a big pile of parts that morph into different unicycle configurations depending on what kind of unicycling I anticipate doing in the near future.

At the moment the unicycles I have assembled are:
geared 26 - Schlumpf hub, KH29 frame, studded tire, Speedway rim, etc - for commuting
36" Nimbus Nightfox - rebuilt with a disk hub, frankentire, and bike seat - in storage till the snow melts
19" trials - Koxx frame, Nimbus hub, KH rim, custom 110/137 cranks. Left it at the fire base for a friend to learn, now it's sitting in a locker 650 km away.
20" learner - Basically a Nimbus II - lent it to my little cousin, not sure if it's getting any use.
My 26" muni is not currently assembled, but all in one bag. It's pretty standard with a Nimbus wheel and KH frame

Wheels not in frames
Geared 32
Fat 26 - need to swap out the hub to fit in Nightfox frame -> eventually to go in a Hatchet
29x50mm - would make a great 29x3 wheel

and a few extra frames saddles, cranks etc.

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
The heavy 24" muni is sold half a year ago. That has given a little more room in the shed.

Updating my list as I did build a 24" Muni which resides in the US with my 29" Muni. So currently:
  • 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 125mm cranks, US resident,
  • 24" Muni with 150mm cranks (shared with above muni) made from parts I had, just bought a Nimbus rim and a Specialized tire.

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?
  • Spare (bin parts?) Muni for the Alps, at the parents...

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.

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)

UPDATE: KH 26 is missing more and more pieces. I still count it as one unicycle.

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.

UPDATE: In use in a 29 guni

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)

UPDATE: Bulit a freewheel for the O24, so this is now my freewheel unicycle
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGXwDENeep8)

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.

The list continues:

Qu-Ax 20 -red hub (NOK 600)
---------------------------------
I needed another 20" for my youngest kid, so we can all go muni together. Second hand.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUkfzbu3eYA)

KH 20 (NOK 300)
-------------------
Second hand. Picked it up today. Older model, scratched but otherwise in good condition. Saddle, seatclamp, pedals not original. The reason for buying this was the price: $ 35

UPDATE:

Unknown 20 (NOK 100)
--------------------------
Second hand. Crap. Used it in a video:
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4OSVL8wwNs)

KH 29 Schlumpf
----------------
Wanted to try a geared unicycle again. Built it myself. Mostly KH parts.
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aBYUbnnO-Yo)

Nimbus Oracle 32
----------------
I ordered it one hour ago for the kids. To good a deal to let it pass. (51% off on Black Friday)
