nimbus nightrider 36 with oregon hub and disk brake

i put this together about the time the oregon came out... 2 years ago id say. put lots of money into it and now ive found that unicycling is terrible for my knees so off it goes to someone who can use it. i really barely used it. really i rode it like 10 brief times so its pretty much new. i think there is one little mark on the frame that is probly not even a scratch and would rub out. ill try to get a pic of that. it has kris holm dual hole moment cranks 125/150. i put the oregon hub on as opposed to the nightrider one because the oregon has a steel spindle and the nightrider is aluminum and known to bend. never muni'ed or roughly ridden. green kris hold fusion freeride seat, green hub. nightrider rim with green rim strip and black frame. oh yeah it was in my hot car in the sun when i just bought it. and if you do that the air in the tires will expand and it ripped one hole of the rim strip and popped the tube so i patched the rim strip with duct tape witch works fine but in one of the holes is grey duct tape as opposed to green rim strip. if thats a problem i can buy a new 10 dollar rim strip and put it in. ok thats enough i would say $600 is what im asking, but im now a little out of touch on what these cost so let me know if im being rediculous. i have near $1000 into this.
im in ohio and can ship.
thanks
mike

pics

here are some pics. in the third you can see the mark on the frame. its not really a scratch. it looks more like a mark. you can't feel it so i think its on the paint and not a removal of it. also there is one other mark not pictured i found. much smalller than this one and also does not look like a scratch. also the brake is a bengal helix hydraulic. and the pedals and brake are white.
thanks

oh yeah, notice those little rubber hairs still on the tire showing how little use this has got.

That is the sister uni to mine, other than the tire and brake, what a sweet ride it is!

Someone should snap this up before I decide to buy a second one

Add one of those new Walt/Matt tires and a foss tube, and you'll have an amazing 36" muni!!

How tall do you need to be to ride a 36? I'm 5'8" and have a 32-33" inseam. I have contacted Mike about this Uni. There are a few on the list ahead of me but he was nice enough to give me some info. He said the frame is 22 1/2" from hub to top of frame. My seat now would need to be raised about a 1/2" if my frame was 22 1/2" tall. That would be OK, but it leaves no room for a post mounted handle. UDC website says that a 30" inseam is the minimum required for the Oracle, I couldn't find a minimum requirement for the KH36. Does anyone have the frame height from hub to top of frame for both of these? Does anyone know why Nimbus changed to the Oracle frame? Is it better or just easier to manufacture?

Mike,

I have the exact same uni, you can clearly ride this uni, at worst you would need to use a fixed seat post, though I'll bet you would be okay with the adjustable KH post.

My inseam is 34.5" measure barefoot crotch to floor, and there is 2.5" between the top of my seat post clamp and the bottom of the seat post base, this is running KH 150's, with the seat dropped for technical muni. Add a half inch if you like lots of leg extension, add another quarter inch for road riding. If you used a fixed seat post, you'd gain another inch of clearance.

Also, you may want to reconsider getting the Nimbus underseat touring bar, it gets loose with use and is a PITA to adjust or tightern as it requires removing the seat from the post. The KH Touring Bar works very well, is lighter, stronger, and just as adjustable as the Nimbus without reducing seat clearance.

If you want to run 165's you need to subtract another 3/5", and if you plan to ride off road, for sure the fixed seat post is going to be necessary unless you like to really stretch your legs, because you need some extra room to drop the seat. You can also run a thinly padded seat to improve clearance.

Nimbus changed frame designs because the twin hoop design is hard to make correctly, so it was coming in out of alignment, also the Oracle line as a whole is all single leg aluminum tube. The Oracle 36" is a nice uni, but I like this design better

ok sorry for the inconvienience. the first person said he would buy it because i told him a much lower shipping price than what it actually came to be. so i finally got it boxed up, so now its all ready to go and well packed. shipping was very expensive for the first guy cause it was going out of country so if anyone in america wants it they should have alot better price. pickup would be even better. so sorry for making everyone wait but its ready to go so please get in touch with me if you are interested.

Ben,
Thanks for all of the info. I thought the Nimbus mount was preferred, IDK. I wondered how it adjusted though, I guess that bolt is on the top, it would be a pain.
What did you mean by they come in and out of alignment? Did you mean that in the manufacturing they were getting them crooked. Once they are made straight they don't twist or something do they? I wouldn't think so or you wouldn't be praising them.
I'm too new at this to really be considering a 36, but I can get carried away.
Thanks
