I have had my Coker for a year or so and ride it everyday, I literally
don’t leave home without it as all my classes, the store, etc. are all
close enough to my house. I tell people that they can check if I am
home by just seeing if my Coker is on the front porch. My coker is
mostly stock, just upgraded cranks, peddles and an airseat.
I got off to a rocky start, when I first got the coker the cranks
worked loose, so I tightened them, only to discover that they now
touched the coker frame. After over a month of going back and forth
with Unicycle.com we finally got things worked out and my coker has
been great ever since.
Except the wheel strength. Coming off a curb late last year the rim
torked underneath me, went back to almost true but alarming
nonetheless. I trued the rim again and was a little more gentle,
however it tacoed several months later. I have trued the rim again with
professional help, and now am very aware that the wheel is not really
strong enough and can certainly feel it flex and bend slightly in
So I want to upgrade.
After reading on here I think the best option would be the airfoil rim,
the Unicycle.com super-wide hub, and tom miller stainless spokes.
Is it true that the upgraded coker wheelset that unicycle.com sells
does not have the wider hub as they show in the specs, or is this old
Has anyone had any success ordering a built wheelset from them with the
airfoil rim, wide hub, and stock spokes?
I would prefer the tom miller spokes but would rather have someone else
with more experience build the wheel for me. Would the best way to this
be to have unicycle.com ship the rim and hub to a wheelbuilder and have
tom also ship his spokes to the wheelbuilder, then have everything
shipped to me. Anyone have any experience with this, or know what the
costs would be. I’m not even sure what the cost of the Tom miller
spokes would be.
I would love any help you guys could offer, or any suggestions.
