    Custom 36er mountain bike have been floating around for a few years now. Those who have ridden them on singletrack often come back saying something along the lines of "it rolls nice, but climbing is impossible." For a mountain bike application, at least, the consensus seems to be that it isn't really practical. Wheel strength and wheel weight seem to make it difficult to justify.

    Although as a road bike, it is quite the amusing ride.

    Those bikes make everyone look like that little guy from The Princess Bride who says "Never start a land war in Asia!"

    The rims, tires and tubes are made primarily by Coker. They're big (no pun intended) among distance unicyclists.
    Ride lots, have fun, skid often!

    Now that you mention it... I was riding a paved trail earlier this year, and there was a guy on a unicycle with a huge wheel.

    One of the programmers from Blurst went on a unicicyle ride from Kenya to Tanzania recently. Here's a tribesman chilling with his unicycle:

    The only way for a unicyclist to get into a higher gear is to get onto a higher wheel.

    The link isn't working for me. However, I can disprove myself, too:
