    The coker is fantastic, because it's relatively cheap, fast and really
    really fun to ride. I've got 1000s of miles on mine and it's my main
    form of transport (I don't have a car).

    It would be great if it came with some better bits as standard, but not
    if it upped the price too much.

    Cheap and easy upgrades -

    Everyone upgrades the seat. A Kris Holm or seat that
    has a big plastic handle on the front would be great. Most people who
    don't have expensive custom handles use Kris Holm type seats. They
    probably don't cost much different to a Viscount seat either.

    Wider hub - a bit wider hub would be nice. Personally I don't like the
    really super wide (100mm) hubs, but lots of people seem to be changing
    theirs for the coker hub.

    Pedals - if it came stock with cheap metal pinned pedals instead of
    plastic ones (like these, called VP something -
    ), it would be cool. Most people use some kind of pedal like this.

    As for more expensive upgrades, it'd be nice to have an aluminium rim
    and stainless steel spokes as standard, but not if it upped the price
    loads, they're not absolutely vital. A couple of us rode 100 miles in
    10 hours on Sunday, both with stock coker rims, both our cokers have
    ridden an awful long way with no rim problems at all.
