I have reason to believe it's a 36" wheel with a 28mm tyre running at 120 psi. The frame has a book rack for your "Observer's Book of Herons", and "General Knowledge Quizzes for Beginners." Unlike the Pashley 26" which has braze ons for two water bottle holders, the new UDC36 "slimline ornithologist QM" will have a fully stocked wine cellar.

I was under the impression that it was a new form of hub from which you can charge your mobile phone, digital camera, MP3 player and other accessories necessary for a successful unicycle ride (especially a long one).

Also accompanied by the new T8 handle, which will have a solar panel incorporated in it for further charging opportunities.

Odd, I'm sure it was you that told me the news months ago.

If you have forgotten you can give me a ring and I can remind you what you said.

What a great idea! Call Schmidt and see if they'll make one! ( http://www.nabendynamo.de/ )

Such a component, however, would ruin the 2+ mile Iron Horse Tunnel.

That is so great! Now you make me want one.
Will the solar panel collect enough energy to make a decent piece of toast?
I can bring along some jam.

I can't give away too much information, but if you like disappointments then you are absolutely going to love this news.

That is far more exciting than what you told me.

well, thanks for the clarification and all, but can you confirm if this rocket pack is able to do toast or not.

Of course it can, or what use would the toast rack be which matches the book rack MikeFule has already leaked info on. An oh-so-secret test rider could say that this is close to the best thing since sliced bread. The centrifugal browning control dial is an inspirational piece of engineering design. Camelbak are developing a matching backpack with butter and jam tubes for toast-and-go riding.

Oh so that is what it is... wow! that should be fun. How much faster does it go? Is it going to be a UDC only? Does the turbo boost button really work?

Which product are you asking about? The new Coker would be shipped from Tennessee, so those closest (or paying for a premium delivery) would get it first.

However the butter & jam dispensing Camelbak would naturally be coming by camel train across the desert: delivery again depends how close do you life to the desert, or could you get your own camels to produce one for you? But the good news is that the toast rack and book rack are both coming from The Bethlem Royal Hospital so may be delivered via Mars any day now, and land worldwide at the same time.

Roger, to answer your questions: much, no and no (it's just a sticker, sorry).
