I was talking to Darren, and he has Cokers in stock.
While not Airfoil, this batch has alloy rims, not steel!
Time to get your Coker in time for Cleveland
He said price was (give or take, get exacts from him) about $525cd, or because american orders are cheaper for him, you are looking at roughly $350us shipped (that’s with the viscount and plastic pedals, methinks)
After yesterday’s awesome Coker ride (my first) I have bumped the Coker near the top of my unicycle to-get list.
I have a few questions on the Bedford Alloy Coker. I understand that contacting him directly would be the best way to get most of the information I need, but I figure I’d check here first for an objective opinion.
Have any of you bought or rode this cycle yet?
How strong is the alloy rim compared to the stock steel rim and the air foil?
Is the rim strong and smooth enough to run a brake?
Is it really only 350 USD? When I ran the Canadian price through a currency converter it came out to 427 USD.
I have bought one from him. It is due in this week. It was $350 shipped until I had him weld on Magura brake mounts true the wheel and then powdercoat it black. The total shipped cost was $440. Darren says the alloy rims are very good. I’ll let you know what I think when it gets here.
LET IT BE SOON
I’ve got a coker with the new rim. However I wouldn’t know how to tell if it’s double walled, nor do I have a digital camera so can’t tell you if it’s double walled or post any piccies of it. Aren’t I a useful person to know.
