Coker big one + muni tire!

And from a non rider, THATS SO COOL.
Synopsis of review:

Parts:
Coker rim
125 Coker cranks
SS spokes
Coker hub
Velo seat
custom fender
AL post
Big one frame
Muni tire

the big one itself:
  1. Light.
  2. good rim.
  3. nice solid cranks.
  4. brake mounts.
  5. uncomfy seat.
  6. LARGE WHEEL
  7. nice round frame.

The new Muni tire:
  1. The printing doesn't work that well, unless in tacky/muddy conditions.
  2. It gets excellent grip.
  3. I rode it on the beach, and pebbles didn't get stuck.
  4. Cleans off very easily.
  5. 4 ply, will hold up.

That seat looks like a DX/Nimbus hightop/old-school KH/standard vello saddle. You can easily take them apart and modify the foam to make them very comfortable.


In the future I would put the review at the start of the vid and the riding at the end.

thanks for sharing

Thanks. Any links on mods? If not, I have a friend who does air saddles.

I thought that there was a tutorial written by someone else but I could not find it.

Basically what i did was slice off the top part of the front of the saddle and cut a wedge out of the rear of the saddle to make it flatter then cut a grove down the middle. You end up with a shape really similar to a KH fusion freeride but with slightly stiffer foam which I think is better for long distance rides.

You will have to figure out a way to lace your cover back on. I just made a bunch of holes and laced it up like a shoe.


I really dislike air saddles, they even out pressure over their whole surface which is what you are trying to avoid with the grove down the middle. You want to focus your support on your sit-bones.

I just removed the cover, cut it, and stapled it back on; wasn't hard at all.

I'm glad you are not intimidated by the size of that thing.
You said you had 11 miles on it...That would be 17.702784 kilometers for you.

Thanks for the review!

Hmm, I just tried the freeride on it, and it felt like it would slip out the back.Maybe if I get a handle bar, I'd use the freeride (it was more comfy though.)

Ahahahahah! Are you talking about the dedication? Every year, if we don't get something for my mom by 12 midnight, the next week she is constantly battering us with crap, and is really angry.

Than what did you mean by I thought you were much cooler? That person at the beginning wasn't me.
