This may sound really stupid, but has anyone ever done it? In My opinion it would be more of a novelty item that really to have any use…Most* Cokering is done on roads or marked paths. But it sure would be neat.
The only thing ive ever seen come close is, I think it was Dave Stockton? And his indestructable Coker.(Correct me if im wrong)
Another thing I had thought about was, has KHU ever designed or had an idea to produce a Coker? I kno theres the KH/Shlumph(sp?) G-Uni but i think a KH Coker might be neat, Alu. Frame, Airfoil rim, it would be pretty light and probly right speedy in the hands of a pro.
Anyways, post your thoughts, discuss.
I do realize that there are indeed a selct few with the blls to do Coker Muni.
Is there a better rim than the Airfoil? Unless KH makes a triple wall, eyeletted rim that weighs less than 2 lbs(which he probly could but it would cost a small fortune)I dont think its going to surpass the Airfoil.
I have been riding a splined Coker for about a year now and I like it a lot. I wanted to be able to switch crank sizes while on a ride without the worry of hub damage so I put my old HK24 hub on my airfoil rim. I offen ride on the road with the 140s then switch to the 170 and MUni Coker on the trail, I only wish that I had shorter cranks for the road. I think the ISIS hub would be a better choice with chranks sizes form 110mm to 160mm.
Are any of the splined hubs wide enough to make a strong wheel? The extra wide UDC hubs and the widened Suzue hubs the Dave Stockton uses are a good bit wider than even the KH/Onza, which is the widest splined hub.
