Default Thoughts on Nimbus unicycle?

I have a 2-piece Semcycle giraffe that I've traveled with for years, but I'm tired of hauling a duffel bag. I'm considering the Nimbus (as it breaks into 4 pieces and can load into a suitcase). Does anyone own one? I'm particularly wondering if it FEELS solid once its put together. Also, how long does it take to assemble? Can it snap together in seconds, or does it take a wrench?

Thanks

I have one, and its great, it does feel solid. You do need a wrench to attach the wheel to the forks, and pedals to the cranks, other than that, its all quick-release.

Default Nimbus Uni

The only part that takes time is to put the two chains on. Feels solid but did have a friend that had it bend while he was doing show.

I've done a couple hundred shows on my Nimbus, I weigh 210 at the start of the season and 185 by the end, and have never had a problem. I think it's important both chains are tight enough that the frame can't flex much if you are bouncing up and down or doing stairs.
