I'm shopping for a new saddle, can you say what model of Qu-Ax saddle you are talking about?
Thanks,
Jim

On my Muni:

On the 20" Luxus:

Both of them are more comfortable than the seat on Yow's Nimbus 26" Muni

All seem good quality at a similar price.
Alan, you are lucky. Why not call in and see the different models. We are only 20 miles down the road. We all ride Muni in the office (I did not mean that literally... but we do some times!).

The trails I have available are tight, twisty, rocky and hilly so I don't go long distances. I always ride by myself so I like to go where there are other people in the area so there is someone to call the ambulance. I just go back and forth and session on sections of trails trying different lines. I don't think I would be comfortable on one much taller so a 24" works well for me.

I envy some of you when I see photos of the long flat smooth muni trails thru the woods where you can go for miles that you post on here. If I had that I think I would try a bigger wheel.

I don't think you can go wrong with a nimbus. My 3 main rides are nimbus and if my skills get to the point where I am breaking them I will be happy to spend the extra and upgrade to a Kris Holm!
+ 1 . For steep/complicated sections, which are the trails I enjoy the most, my main ride for Muni is the 24. As you well say I also go up and down these trails until I get them right. By the end of it I am so tired that day I haven't got the energy to ride anywhere else. I also have a 26 but I use it for less changeling locations with easier trials. I am slowly getting better in tackling difficult trials with the 26 though.

I haven't got a 27.5 or a 29 but I think I would find them a bit too big to tackle difficult sections. For the average rider (myself included) they are probably fantastic for easier trials/cross country. I already have too many Unicycles but I am sure that in the future I will get one those big wheel size Muni as well
