"Coker Light"

All,

I’ve got two suggestions here.

  1. Is there not a fellow in the UK who makes strong, light UNI frames out
    of Carbon Fiber? Word has it that he’s also well-acquainted with
    “Coker Classic.”

  2. Also, I once saw a picture of Tom Miller with about 16 different-sized
    unicycles he built ? lined up against a garage. Many might have been one of a
    kind. So he should be comfortable with small-scale production.

Either of these esteemed people might be able to comment sensibly on the “Coker
Light” debate.

P.S. No Coker Yet, waiting for the Upgrade!

Re: “Coker Light”

half the calories. or coker one. or maybe not.

Because we want it to taste at least as good as the original…

Re: “Coker Light”

More on the lightness issue, are there any uni’s with single sided frames? How
do you think that would affect the ride or side to side balance?

I would think with carbon fibre in particular, the strength would be there and
nearly half the weight could be reduced. Maybe even more important for a
giraffe. Couldn’t the post come out on one side, and then literally go up
vertically from the point directly above the tire by the time its cleared?
