Improved Coker

Can we assemble the parts for an improved Coker?

Wayne van Wijk (wvanwijk@gil.com.au) is working with Velocity to make some
quality rims. Is a group in Minneapolis working on a redesigned frame?

I would love to see a strong rigid wheel. My understanding is that
Velocity’s rim will accomplish that. I hope that a more rigid frame–and one
with more clearance–can be created as well. Then we will have a truely
roadworthy unicycle.

Wayne needs more people to sign up on his waiting list for rims. He is paying
the setup costs and taking the gamble on this venture. Please email him with
your interests/questions.

Does the Minneapolis framebuilder need people to sign up on a waiting list?

Re: Improved Coker

Hi!

I’m definitely interested in superior parts to use the existing Coker tire for a
unicycle. I would prefer to buy as complete of a package as possible instead of
picking up different parts from lots of different sources. I’m not really sure
what specs. or anything like that I want, but willing to go along with others’
ideas and interests. Put me on the “list” for any related issues.

Re: Improved Coker

Hi A.J. This should be too cool! I had a lot of fun at NUC! I’m also pumped
about the Oklahoma MS150. I’ve been riding on most of the “official” training
rides(or should I say at the tail end of the rides). Now that my sprained ankle
is getting better and I’ve gone back to 5" cranks, I might just be able to do 85
miles the first day before dark. Then the second day at 67 miles should be
easier I HOPE. There are a lot of hills on the route. If anyone wants to sponser
me or A.J. or JOIN US send us an e-mail. I have a sister-in-law who has MS so
this is more than just another long ride for me. Thanks -Mark —

I plan to immediately buy one of the improved Cokers, especially if they are to
be lighter, and will recommend them to my mnay unicyclist friends in Japan.

I too would be interested in buying the entire unicycle, rather any parts to
replace in my existing Coker.

Speaking for the Minneapolis ‘group’, we are planning on building a ‘new and
improved’ Coker. We have experience from Unicycle Across Minnesota on what
improvements would be useful for long distance riding.

While I am one of many people giving input to the new design, I am not part of
the actual ‘design team’. The design team will Paul from O’sells
Unicycle/Bicycle store and Neil Younggren. When they get farther down the road
in getting the design all worked out and parts lined up, I’ll talk to them about
taking orders.

Re: Improved Coker

Definatly a better seat. I didn’t even put the Viscount seat on mine, I got a
Sem seat. Of course, it would be great if an air seat was “standard” equipment.
Also better pedals.

Re: Improved Coker

If somebody with more long distance experience is re-designing the coker I may
wait for them to do theirs. No point in re-creating the wheel twice.

Re: Improved Coker

Hello, I am most definately interested in anything that will make the Coker a
better distance machine. Please put me on the list. Do you know what the prices
are gonna be? When do you think they will be ready? I know it’s a long shot but
I’ve got a distance ride late next month and would the rims be ready by then?
Probably not but it doesn’t hurt to ask. Later, alligator.

Re: Improved Coker

Hey Mark, How was Nationals? I will definately be there for the next one. How
have your rides been going lately? Sadly, I haven’t ridden in a month or so but
you can guarantee that I will be more than ready for the MS150 next month. I
just sent my registration form off yesterday so it’s official. There will be two
big wheels in the ride. I’m so jazzed about being able to do a ride with another
uni. The one I did back in April was with another bike rider and I felt bad
because he kept having to slow down to stay with me but with you I will have
someone to ride with the whole way and I won’t have to worry about slowing you
down, hopefully. Hope to hear from you soon. Bye Mark.
