This is a well designed unicycle; comfortable, fast, and durable. There are some things to consider before making your final purchase: first, the unicycle is fast, that being said, expect to hit hard when you fall. Initially i fell alot, with practice i no longer fall(or at least i fall more gracefully). 2nd, the standard crank that comes with this uni is small and will feel like riding a bike in low gear. This isnt a problem unless you have lots of wind or lots of hills. I live in south texas; not many hills, but it is always windy. I find that anything wind over 11 mph is very challenging(especially if it is gusting). The very small hills that i do ride up are very dificult. This could be remedied by puchasing the unicycle with a larger set of cranks. 3rd, the breaks and handlebars are not needed(just my opinion). I tried to get accustomed to using them but found it less effective than going without. Also, i was super concerned about hitting the break too hard and flying off the unicycle(never happened, just seemed like it could). Finally, if you havent ridden a unicycle this size, it will take some work to learn the basics(especially mounting). The high seet means you will fall hard. All this being considered, i would still highly reccomend this product, i have a much smaller unicycle at home that i never use now that i have the nightfox. Its so enjoyable and so comfortable. I often take it out for a 5 mile ride and find no discomfort to my manhood. If i were in better shape, im sure i could go 10 miles before any discomfort started. With my prior unicycles i always started hurting after 1.5 miles, and 5 miles would have been excrutiating. I have owned my nightfox now for 8 months. (Posted on 23/09/2016)
The unicycle arrived disassembled in excellent condition, and while the provided instructions were not apropos for the Nightfox, it was easy for me to assemble. The tire and FOSS tube were not installed on the rim, so I went to the FOSS website and followed instructions for inner tube installation and had no issues. So far, the unicycle has been sturdy and generally excellent to ride. Also, my order was processed and delivered from the UK to the US very promptly. Overall great buying experience.

This is the first 36" I've ever owned or ridden. The 135mm cranks were just the right length after riding 114mm cranks on a 26". It was a very smooth ride with the 2.5" tyre pumped to 3 bars. The T-bar was also a first for me and gave a feeling of control, especially on corners.
During assembly, the bearing caps were a pleasure to fit. The threaded upper housing receives the head of an allen key bolt and the head of this bolt is well-concealed. The adjustable frame tubes slide smoothly, fitting perfectly. The T-bar is fixed to a tube with a white single bolt seat clamp, a colour that doesn't really blend in. The gel seat was a little wider than what I've ridden but looks great and is bound to be comfortable. The Nightfox's neon green is simply beautifil and an apt choice for a 36er that's unique and innovatve in its class. (Posted on 17/05/2015)
O I absolutely love it! I've logged just a little short of 300 miles so far on the 36er it's sweet and fits me absolutely perfect. I've added 110mm moments and they ride pretty perfect too. Overall the experience is great I couldn't have asked for a better touring unicycle! (Posted on 31/03/2015)
Just got this bad boy and my first impression is...wow. This unicycle means serious business. The build is so unique and is like nothing I have seen in unicycles.
Let's talk about the ride experience: The ride is so smooth. It feels sturdy. The only complaint I have is that even when cranking on the bolt that clamps the handlebars, I found that the handlebars were still considerably loose until I went ahead and greased it. Other than that, I have only good things to say.
Conclusion: I am incredibly happy with my purchase and I hope I can enjoy this ride for years to come. (Posted on 9/17/2014) (Posted on 31/03/2015)
A totally new and innovative concept that makes it possible for shorter riders - even those under 5 feet tall - to now enjoy the world of 36er-ing! And as a rider nearly a foot taller that that, this awesome 36er is the ONE unicycle that comes closest to the adage, "one size fits all"! (Posted on 31/03/2015)
At 5'6" I was a bit concerned I'd have to substantially cut a 36 down to ride. No cutting with the nightfox. I've had it for a week and I've put about 120 miles on it so far. Seems to go about 10mph consistently. The T-handle is super nice. I definitely recommend a d'brake and spirits for a brake setup. It's a lot of wheel to stop in a hurry without one.

I have to admit...I've just entered my 3rd year of riding, and I wasn't sure I could handle a 36er. I am an old guy (55), and I live in the Rockies- wasn't sure I could crank that large wheel up the passes. So I started off with 165 cranks...holy cow, this machine is FAST- and, like the previous reviews stated- STABLE. Mounting is a bit intimidating at first, but once you nail it (on my second or third day)- you want to ride it everywhere! I will probably stick to my 26" Oracle for the gnarly terrain, but this machine is an aerobic dream- awesome for long distance rides. But who knows what I'll think after riding this for a few months? The mountains await out the front door... Highly recommended! (Posted on 31/03/2015)
The Nimbus Nightfox is a game changer for young children. The minimum inseam requirement is 70cm (27.5”) with 138mm crank arms but I went even shorter with a pair of 127/110mm Spirit cranks. My oldest daughter was tall enough for a Nightfox by her 11th birthday. Her 9 year old brother still too short but does have renewed vigor, seeing her take off, riding his 20” Club around the neighborhood counting the days until he can join us doing serious miles on our local rails-to-trails path.
The NIghtfox could (and one might argue should) be moved from the Commuter/Touring section to the Starter Series (Child Large) category in with the 20” unicycles because the smart move is to get your kids riding 36er as soon as they are tall enough for a Nightfox. Yes, a 20” is still useful for learning to mount and short bursts down the street or, like the mostly unrideable 16” that proceeded the 20”, for rocking back and forth in front of the TV.
My kids didn’t really “get it” until they tried a 36er that tracks straight without as much side to side wobble. And, once you get up to speed, the momentum of a wheel that big and heavy makes it less tiring to ride. Ask anyone who has just tried a 36er for the first time and they will tell you “It practically rides itself”. That is why so many of us first time Kris Holm/Schlumpf hub owners choose a 36er for our first geared unicycle. It is not until later, after you “get the concept” of shifting and geared riding that you might decide to lace your hub into a smaller wheel. The point is, a 36er is actually much easier to ride.
After they get used to a 36er, you can move them back down to the 20” and they will be able to ride it like never before. Now she has commandeered my 26” Oracle and it won’t be long before I finally have a Mountain Unicycle (MUni) riding partner.
Take it from a guy who knows. Get your kid a Nightfox. If you are unsure they will be able to master it, set it up for yourself to do some Coker MUni. I opted for the all-steel disc hub and outfitted it with a Vee Rubber “The Todd” tire. If I can ever get these kids off of it, I’m taking it to the woods. (Posted on 9/17/2014) (Posted on 31/03/2015)
