Pink hammermill. Definitely. It will look like it's made from a pig's belly.

Well it sounds like a nice unicycle, anyway. I suggest a GB handle set.
Have fun!

Very nice photos of your new Coker. It's funny, It doesn't look all that big.

Haven't you run out of money yet zippy?
And why a Schlumpf frame? - it sounds like it's about the worst part of the Schlumpf package - or is that it... perhaps Roger's giving them away

Is Florian selling his 36" frames? I know he had a batch of 1st generation frames which are really light. They look very similar to the KH frames. I woudn't mind getting one myself.

Don't.

The Schlumpf frames are a heap o'shite for a coker, they just don't scale up right, especially for someone like you who is not super-tall. Even Roger says that the frame limits his riding ability. I'd be worried if you put brakes on them too, as the two in the UK with brakes on both snapped. They're also the most stupid frame design as far as adjusting the seatpost goes.

The original frame is okay, if you want a super posh frame, hunter cycles make one for coker which is super pimpy, and similar in price to the Schlumpf frames.

Hunter frames are really a great ride. You should consider one if your budget allows.

Sounds like you've got the rest down though. But make sure you get the UDC extra wide hub. The UDC / Kovachi 36" wheel with an air foil rim and extra wide hub is as good as anything available - and much better if you consider price and delivery time of other sources. I personally don't care for my T/A radial tire, though I've heard others like them. I like the coker tire better.
