Giraffe unicycle built to take the rigours of professional performance. Can be extended from 5 to 7 feet high!
This unicycle has a huge audience impact! Taller is better. This Nimbus Performer giraffe unicycle can be extended from 5 feet tall to 7 feet tall. Built tough enough for professional performers. Breaks apart for ease of transportation. Can be broken down into four sections which fit in a large suitcase - ideal for travelling performers. Extra frame sections can be purchased separately to extend the seat even further!
Strong, large diameter frame, chrome plated. Uses quality aluminium quick release clamps for quick assembly and disassembly. The frame sections slot together so that they will not twist nor move independently of each other.
To extend from 5' to 7' the quick release under the pedals is undone, the chains removed and an extra section of frame is inserted.
Two chain design for equalised tension on the wheel - single chain giraffes can pull the wheel out of alignment with the frame
Large sprockets reduce chain and cog wear
Upper sprockets have chain guards
Comfortable Nimbus Gel Saddle, black with white front handle and rear bumper
Specially designed hub uses a 5-bolt mounting system to securely hold the sprockets in place on both sides
Comes with two extra long chains, frame section and quick release for use in 7' mode
Comes with Nimbus decals and Unicycle.com head badge
We advise purchasers of this giraffe to buy a Park Tool C-Spanner tool in order to keep the bottom bracket nice and tight. If the bottom bracket works loose and you continue riding damage can be done to the axle.
I ordered the unicycle at about 10.30am one day and it arrived at my door on Auckland's North Shore at 8.30am the next day. I'm not sure that's even possible, but it happened! Having never owned a uni cycle before I didn't know what to expect, but it soon became apparent why it looks so robust, because it needs to be. I've spent about three and a half hours on it so far and making good progress, although I'm not entirely in control of where I'm going yet. But I'm very happy with the product and the information that was supplied with it. It's the complete package for a beginner. Thank you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you (I already have) to others. Brucemore...
