Bye Bye Cokey

Raphael, I have calmed down now… well, no I haven’t, I can still feel the effects of the coffee from last night :D:D:D:D

Freemounting the coker… Run and jump. On road (including in traffic) almost 100% success, on narrow path (ie canal towpath) probably about 75% success.

Oh yes, did I tell you all about my coker’s little adventure? I was riding along the canal towpath when I came to a low bridge. I was sure I’d been underneath it before on the coker, but this time I had to duck really low. I thought I would be ok but the ceiling kept on getting lower and lower so I jumped off. For some reason I missed grabbing the seat and it went bouncing off into the canal!! Luckily for me it floated.

Had I been on a 29er I would not have come off, and would not have had something to laugh about for the next week or two!

I started my longdistancing on a 29er (well, 28er) but decided the coker was infinitly superior. It is, as you say over there, AWESOME!!!

Mmmm, coffee

O yeah, I forgot to mention;

Well said both Sofa and Rhysling. Some people just don’t appreciate the full genuis of the coker. Autopilot on a unicycle, you won’t find it anywhere else.

Hmmm, that Blueshift does sound very tempting. Harper, any plans for her coming over to the UK?

Re: Re: Bye Bye Cokey

same experience (though I got mine last week)
then a friend told me to slow it down and go with more amplitude
I suddenly realized I was not dancing rock-and-roll with a 40kg lady
but with a more imposing matron
it worked and I think that in about 100 freemount tries
I will get high on Coker :stuck_out_tongue: !

Not recommended!

My wife’s tattoo is, sadly, not unicycle related, but you can see it here:

But had your 29er ended up in the canal for some other reason, it probably would have sank, given the minimal tire volume.

Exactly :smiley:
