Hmmm...
Usually 26x3" (Duro) with 150s or 29x2.4" (Racing Ralph) with 140s.
Occasionally 26x2.1" if it's really sticky mud and tyre clearance becomes a problem with the Duro.

Right now I'm riding a 24X3" with 150s, but once I get the plastic pedals out of my 137s I'm switching!

A Blend of sizes

My MUni riding used to be almost exclusively a 24" Hunter 3.0 with 175, now down to 150 SINZ with the Mountainuni Rotor. Last two seasons 75% of MUni has been w/ a KH29 2.3 with 137 cranks, no dual hole.

A Triton 36" is next with the disc, and I can only assume that this may trump all other single wheeled forms of Off Road transport

Hey, looks like I'm going to get to criticize the poll before John Foss gets to it :
Why no option for 36?
I'm also not sure what "canks" are, but I still went with that option.

So, now to answer:
Usually 29" with 150 or 165 cranks.
More and more 36" with 152 cranks.
I've also got a 24" muni, but I use it mostly to practice skills, and only sometimes on the trail to keep my speed down when riding with my son.

I started on a 24in with 150mm cranks, then moved to 26x2.3 with 152mm cranks. I plan to move to 29x2 with 150mm cranks ASAP. I also ride a 26x3 with 165mm cranks a lot.

Of course, since tires aren't always accurately labeled, my 26x2.3 is really a 26x2.1 and the 26x3 is really a 26x2.7.

You forgot 36er! My setup includes:

24" KH MUni. 150mm cranks, maggies, LM rim, intense dh tire, cf base and handle, etc.
KH 29er: 125/150mm cranks, maggies, stock rim, tire.
KH 36er: Mostly street and distance, but MUni as well from time to time.

And some of us ride different unicycles on the same terrain... some days its 24er muni, other days its 36er muni.

So... what's your question again?

My choice of rides has become totally weather driven:

When it's dry, I ride the KH 29 x 2.4 (RR)
When it's snowy or muddy, I ride the Surly 26 x 3.8 (Larry)
When I feel the urge, I ride the 36er, certainly not often enough.

Poor, poor, poor lil 36er, so lonely. What can I say, I'm all about muni
