The close handles (GB) are for steep climbs and I sometimes use them just
riding along. The second set further away allow me to more easily take some
of the force off my crotch. The variety is what’s important. I can shift the
seat position, shift my weight around, all without dismounting, by switching
where my hands are. It’s still somewhat of an experiment, but I bet I’ll
take this setup or something very similar to Norway in a couple of months.

I see you have The Big One,you must love it eh?
I was wondering why you switched frames? ,you must have gotten a pro deal on that kh?Or was it the cool factor?
Was there any problems with your original Coker set up ?
That bar on it looks outrageous,that would carry the kitchen sink.
Ken, on the KH36, it’s just the ordinary Coker tire. It works fine off-road,
but I haven’t tried it in muddy conditions. It eats up fireroads for
breakfast (actually I cranked out 14 miles this morning before breakfast on
it!) When I get my new wheel that doesn’t have Coker spokes I will be down
to just two things from Coker: the tire and the tube.
Usually I commute on the Sola because it’s faster than Coker, but now
training for NUT, I am unicycling everyday. The poor Sola hasn’t been used
in nearly a month! It’s a fantastic bike though (paid for mostly with an
insurance claim when my 1988 hand-made Ritchey SuperComp was stolen).
