    I put an old 20" unicycle frame on a KH rail adaptor.
    Some handlebar tape and the frame is bent together.
    Now that's clever. I have a junk frame laying around here somewhere... this looks like it would be a good improvement over my current one.

      Two stems and two bar ends.

      Very light and stiff.

        I have used both the T7 and the stock Coker handle on my new Big One.

        I greatly prefer the Coker handle. I like that the bar ends are separately attached, allowing adjustment of the angle. Having upright bar ends makes a HUGE difference in being able to take weight out of the seat on longer rides. I'ts just more comfortable.

        The double bar (pi bar) Coker design is very sturdy. I would always feel the T7 move when I mounted. No movement with the Coker bar.

        A problem I see with the T7 is the twisting caused by only having a single attachment point back to the mounting bracket. I would guess that this is a major cause of breakage.

        The double bar Coker design is superior to the single bar T7, IMHO. I don't see why the T7 could use 2 bars, welded on either side of the seat bracket.

          Can I have a picture of your full setup( unicycle) with some specs?
          Looks like a KH coker, but not sure

                Alright, so I finally got around to recycling my broken T7. I just cut it off and stuck it into a seat post which I attached to a stem with seat post clamps. So far it seems to work alright. I may shorten it a little though. The angle could be steeper too, and maybe I'll move the brake lever back to the handle bar.

                  I replaced the T7 part with some aluminum adjustable parts:

                        I imagine a bike seat would be quite nice with a handlebar to rest weight on.

                          Thanks, maybe I'll spray it some time. I think it's okay in silver, though.
                          The plastic bottle fender was actually not my invention, I just saw Ducttape's version and got inspired... But it really works well. I attached it to the frame with sticky velcro straps, so I can take it off when I don't need it.

                          Yes, the setup works pretty well. It isn't much more comfortable than the previous one, if at all. But it sure takes the stress off the more fragile areas... I think I need a longer seat post to make it even better. Moving the seat back a little more might be a good idea too. So I guess I'll be experimenting with that.

                            First post on this forum

                            A good friend of mine made this one, it is made from a bike appartement handlebar, the position is really nice although I'm not yet completely used to put weight on it.

                              Homemade T-bar! (well, not exactly the same thing)

                              I Finaly did it! Last winter I wanted to make my own handlebar for my Coker, and I started yesterday Now it is finished! but it not painted.

                              It's a bit like a T-bar but it's not as ajustable as a T-bar and it's a bit longer than a T-7 (probably a bit more heavy too).
                              I know my seat is crappy
                              There are the pictures
