i will agree it makes the uni pretty much essentially useless for trials. but thats fine with me. i dont plan on doing trials much in the snow... i would have done it to my nimbus 24" but it doesnt have a saddle so that would be useless, and i wasnt about to drill holes in my 36" radial tyre.

the tyre is heaps of fun down big dirt hills though, makes it so much easier and funner to ride down.

yes, australia has snow, its a 21 hour bus trip down to the snow. the snow lasts for like 3 or 4 months. the snow is crappy, though. but it's all good.

i like how it makes the uni look meaner

first pic is the stock before, and second two are it now!!!
I've thought of getting a LX 24 for Muni as well. It'd be much lighter - easier carry/ride up hills and w/ my pittiful skills I don't think I stress the uni enough to need splines. Then I can switch it over to a commuter if/when I break the hub.

Riding of drops more than a curb to concrete hurts my feet and/or my but and I can't hop consistently yet. But a couple of weeks ago I missed the timing in absorbing a bump and did what I thought was my first rolling hop, I wasn't sure so then I did one on flat intentionally. I only hopped 3 or 4 inches though

added two unicycles to my family, but the Nimbus X freestyle came with a 24" frame on a 20" wheelset so it's not pictured because I sent the frame back and UDC is sending me the correct frame.

That is really weird, how could they assemble a unicycle and not notice that the frame is the wrong size?

Your white dx frame looks bent.

thats because it is a 2006 frame and snapped and I got it re-welded but it was crooked, the weld is solid though, no problems yet and it's been several months of riding even more intensly than when I broke it.
