Upgrading a Nimbus 29er

I've been thinking recently about upgrading my '29\" Nimbus'
(http://unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=791). I ride it a lot on a
gravel road that has become mostly dirt, mud, and occasional rocks, so
I have been thinking about putting the 'Nano Raptor'
(http://unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=305) on it. I was
wondering if anyone has done that already, because I don't know if a
treaded tire will fit the clearence very well. Also, I've been debating
about getting a set of 'GB handlebars'
(http://unicycle.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=576), and want to know
what sorts of seats they fit. I've got a KH Freestyle seat and a Torker
LX (basically a Miyata) air seat; will it fit either of those?

Although I don't have the exact numbers in front of me, if the Big Apple
2.35 fits, a Nanoraptor should fit too.

I don't know about the KH freestyle saddle, but the GB4 will work on
Miyata-format saddles. You'll need some washers to make it fit, and
the steel reinforcement plate is basically a must.
