    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?


    Check out one of my latest favorite bands: 'Chagall Guevara'
    (http://homepage.mac.com/mpeters/chagall_guevara/) (free downloads).
    Also, check out my company, the coolest up-and-coming woodceilings
    company: '9Wood' (http://www.9wood.com).
    Or don't check 'em out. I understand.

    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.

  4. Now that this has been brought up: considering that it's now winter,
    does anyone have suggestions for a tire that's good for icy/snowy road
    riding that fits on a Nimbus 29er?
