Big Red Bike

I'm looking for this large red bike I saw once and I can't find it anywhere. I think it has like 30" wheels. It's a big red cruiser style bike. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, please show me where to find it or tell me who makes it. Thanks.

That is a majorly cool bike, btw- I haven't seen one close up.

I remember a post on it before- someone mentioned it didn't use "high quality" components- whatever that means. I'm not even sure they make them anymore.

I think they also sell unicycles with that tire size, and that may be more the reason for the existence of it.

Also check into a Surley Pugsley, which is available with huge tires- ie, fat tires, not 36" diameter tires. Still looks cool.

Looking back at the Coker picture- looks like your toes could clip the back of the front wheel when you turn on a sharper turn.

Thank God somebody got the name. I couldn't think of it and it was making me crazy...
I saw one at Tahoe last summer, and the owner let me ride it around a parking lot. It's a great toy, but not really much of a bike. I think it weighs something like 42 pounds.
They make this, too: http://store.coker.com/product.php?p...cat=483&page=1

Ah, found the info:
"Important Notice: Monster Cruiser bicycles and Big OneŽ unicycles are currently out of stock while we make some great new improvements to each of these items. We anticipate that the Monster Cruisers will be back in stock in 2008. The new and improved unicycle will be available soon. We appreciate your patience during this time."

I have seen the (used) unicycles on Ebay, haven't seen the bike anywhere.

I have seen one up close and they are an interesting beast. They may be of low quality compared to a $2000 roadie, but they appear to be quite durable. There is one that shows up at my LBS every 6 months or so for tune up and tire replacement. The guy it belongs to rides the crap out of it, They figure he rides over 200 miles a week on it, and has been doing it for several years.
