Since you mentioned getting a 24", the Nimbus mountain unicycle is $360 on unicycle.com , a pretty good deal, and an indestructible uni. Use the money you save to buy good safety gear, maybe an extra pair of different-length cranks to play around with, tools (pedal wrench, hex-set, crank puller, tire removal tools, etc.), maybe a second tire (the Duro is a great downhill/low-pressure-roll-over tire, but it's pretty heavy). That'll get you out on the trails, ready to tackle some semi-technical terrain. Just a suggestion. Take it or leave it.

2xl on 100mm rims

At low psi this thing is not just unsteerable but also unrideable because it won't move. There is just too much tire in contact with the ground you need King Kong strength to ride. The idea of a fat unicycle floating on snow went out the window. Only a bicycle with 2 snowshoes can float. I am a bit disappointed by that.
There is very little clearance so at lower psi there is rubbing because the tire moves laterally. The tire is loose on the rim.
At psi of 15 and up this thing comes alive. It is very steerable because there is very little knobby contact with the ground. On the road it is as steerable as my road 36er. The weight somehow makes it stable. But it is not nimble. The tire is very heavy and sits higher than a 29x3. More like a 32. It is now my favorite, offering a whole different unicycle experience.

It turns very well at psi above 14 because just a few tire knobs are in contact with the pavement at any time. A lower psi its not just unsteerable but unrideable because take too much strength.

Now that the Dutch Uni Championships are behind me, I feel I can ride anything again and there is nothing I have to focus on, so I decided to take my hatchet for a spin. I haven;t ridden it so often, but that was also because of the seat. Today I used the seat from my Nimbus 29" and it felt really good. I road about 8-9km offroad. It is really easy to mount. The only thing I had to get used to that it bounces a bit when riding fast. Now I will prolly need to get an extra seat for my Nimbus again.
