When 29 isn’t enough—36 inch bike tires!


I rode past Tony on the way home tonight and couldn’t help but turn around to find out more about his bike. It may not be evident from my phone-cam picture, but he’s riding 36 inch wheels. Apparently this is a promo bike from Coker (they make tires, commuting unicycles, and the odd bike among other things). Coker’s apparently fresh out of the Monster Cruiser, Tony’s riding a variant on that from what I can tell.

Tony says he just liked the bike. He rides for exercise on nice days. I can’t blame him, today was lovely in Seattle.


whoa—can you get more details on this bike?

Details added to the post. Coker makes a mini-penny-farthing too!

chances are i sold this bike to Tony.  my shop had two of them a few years ago, and i sold one if not both. 

the bikes were so big, i flat out couldn’t ride ‘em.
