what sort of uni setup is recommended given that the amount of ascent and descent mentioned on a bike tour of the circuit goes over 1000m per day on some days
It's a bit early for me to say, but I would suggest a 26" or 29'er as the most likely recommendation.

This will be one of the hilliest tours. We also did a Himalayan Unitour in 2009, but that was on road, so was rideable on a 36".

2. of course!
3. It depends. These sort of trips include everything- accomodation, support crew, most meals, support vehicles, support bikes. In the past they've been between US$1300-1990.
4. we aim for 12 days for all the trips...it means that most people can fit it into a 2wk holiday including fly in/out. Usually a few people either arrive early, or stay on after the tour to do more travelling, if they wanted more travel.
cheers, im Tring to find a few differant things to do on my uni, the price doesn't seem so bad when you consider what's included.
what was your average daily distance?
Its looks like a truly amazing journey

That really depends on the trip. On some trips a 30km off-road ride could take all day, or on others 100km is relatively easy.

I expect Nepal distances to be fairly low because of steepness and terrain.
