The Nimbus Performer Series 20 inch Convertible Giraffe Unicycle - Chrome is great for performers, or regular riders who want a serious challenge! This giraffe-style unicycle converts in minutes from 5 feet tall to 7 feet tall, and features a quality design by Roger Davies. A double-chain build increases rider safety and balance, and parts separate quickly for easy transport - great for traveling shows! Once disassembled, the pieces of the cycle fit into four sections that fit into a standard large suitcase (about 26 x 20 x 8 inches). What more could you ask for?
The Nimbus Convertible is for experienced unicyclists only. The chances of injury are increased significantly when the cycle is increased to 7 feet in height. Riders should have a minimum inseam of 32 inches, and a maximum of 40 inches. Please note that these sizes are from the crotch to the floor while wearing shoes; they are not the same as pant inseam sizes.

Comments about Nimbus Performer Series 20 Inch Convertible Giraffe Unicycle - Chrome:
This is the latest addition to my cadre of juggling, balance, and stunt equipment. Awesome visibility, you simply cannot be missed on a 7 foot unicycle. Sturdy design, and also breaks down to fit in my smaller car. Get one!
