The factory wheel is 3 cross. If you’re doing the Airfoil rim with the stock spokes, it’ll be 4 cross unless you have a spoke roller. The Airfoil rim is taller the Coker rim. I would recommend going to the stainless spokes from Uni-factory and the Semcycle nipples. I got mine uncut and did it myself.
I’m going re-use the stock crappy rim and see how long it lasts with a wider hub. If I start riding the Coker a lot, I’ll get the Airfoil rim later. I used to ride the Coker a lot until I taco’d the wheel twice. After that, I built up a 29er and just love it for commuting and singletrack. Right now, I just want to get the Coker rolling again so I don’t have $300 worth of unicycle hanging useless in the garage.
The Coker hub is only slightly narrower than a Suzue hub so I’m going to build up a 20 inch freestyle wheel with it. I’ve got a couple old Araya red anodized aluminum BMX rims that I can use. Just need to get some 184mm spokes, frame, bearings,cranks, pedals, seat, seat post, tire, and tube.
The Stealth Torkers are great. I test rode one in California. If only they had a square crown. Hmmm… I could aways get one and then do the jagur frame swap. My kids have 20 inch Torker wheel in a Yuni frame. Now you’ve got me thinking.
I’m off to eBay to see how cheap I can get a Steath Torker.
