    Sun makes a unicycle that has a 20x4-1/4" tire. It's surprisingly easy to ride compared to a skinny tire uni. It's not a Surly...but it'll get you on a single fat tire.

    This uni is currently produced/sold through unicycle.com. Can take fatties and looks like knard/rabbit hole.

    Ah, the Nimbus Oregon! Yes, very similar. The cool thing about the Oregon that it has a lockable frame design so you can commute/run errands or do bar crawls with it and potentially lock it up to a solid object.
    When I was looking to learn to muni, the hardest decision was to go 24 or 26 fat? Since I am all of 5'3" and had never ridden a uni before, I was steered towards the 24 as being a better sized ride for me. But I took to it like I take to most pedal things and was riding miles within a month. I find that it is geared too much towards spinning with the 24" wheel and 150mm cranks. I have looked at internal geared Schlumph hubs($1800 for 2 gears) or switching out to 125mm/150mm dual position cranks($150) so that I can ride it farther on the paved trails but switch back to more spin for offroad.
    So I think the size of the wheel is correct for me, just the cranks or gearing needs changed. But I love it otherwise.

    Smile A Ti Conundrum

    Well 1st off a Fat tyre Muni (Mountain Unicycle) is harder to lean to ride on then a STD Muni 26"/24" x 2.5" or 3" tyre.
    I started riding Muni in 2004 (an stopped in 2011 but still ride from time to time) My last Muni was a Custom Designed (By Me) and build for me by Triton with 2 speed geared Hub!
    I missed out on the last Conundrum Frame by a few months it was a sorry news day

    Well there is some good news in that you can still get a Conundrum today but not in Steel! Triton make a Triton triple muni frame and its very cool, very well made, and you can run it with a 24" or a 26" or a 29" wheel all in the same frame (fork) here are a few photo's of the Triton

    Please Note: that Fat Tyre Frame's are wide and you will hit you legs on the frame legs.

    Yo!

    I am a lover of the Conundrum - I ride a 26" but have a 24" still in the box. here is a pic of the 26" Surly Conundrum | Flickr - Photo Sharing! . I also ride a Kris Holm 29er off road which is close - but not as much fun as bouncing over obstacles.

    There was one used at my community bike shop for the longest time. I thought it would be silly to buy it then when I passed a unicycle tourist on my summer tour in Napa I said to myself, hell I'll get it and worse comes to worse I just sell it. I came back from tour and it was bought the week before! NOOOOO!!!!

    I might part with the 24" it is black and has a 24" large Marge rim (unbuilt). It could be built with a 26" rim and used with a regular atb tire as well. Shoot me an offer if you want. I am needing a road / cross bike to supplement my Vaya - if you have a Chili Con Crosso or a Cross Check we could certainly work something out (I would obviously add $)
