With a couple of hours to spare between lunch and afternoon unicycle sessions at school I headed to the nearest big hill in the Wombat Forest to try out the Nimbus 26″ ISIS MUni.
First impression is that the Nimbus 26″ MUni is one cool piece of machinery, the standout feature being the 3.0″ tire making the working diameter of the 26″ tire only slightly smaller than a 29’er but with the ride benefits of the wider tire and smaller wheel build.
Babbington Hill Top Track is a challenging climb – washed out, eroded, steep in places, slippery, lots of large loose rocks. It fooled a number of competitors in last year’s MTB Cyclic Navigator thinking a climb to the top would make for easy points. Not so, definitely a leg burning anaerobic climb and also lots of fun to descend.
Without a lot of time to spare it was straight up and down, arriving back at school just in time for the afternoon unicycle session with the kids.
The 26’er has got me thinking that’s for sure…
