Friday Frivolity: Cars are beneath us

May 16, 2013

You might remember Richie Trimble from that 30 Seconds to Mars bike video. He was the guy sporting the rainbow-coloured feather mohawk, and, oh yeah, his bike was 10ft tall!

But Richie has gone up in the world since then. His latest tall-bike, STOOPIDTALL, is over 14ft above terra firma. The man has balls, the man has balls…

    I saw this video a few weeks ago and about got vertigo. Initially I thought he was going to ride it off the pier or something. As a nice reminder that ‘what is old is new again’ I came across this old tall bike from 1899. http://www.retronaut.com/2013/05/the-eiffel-tower-bicycle/

    Absolutely impressive height!
    Way too risky for a daily use ;-)
    If you enjoy tall bikes, although not so high, a spanish guy nick named “Cascoloco” (crazy helmet) finished the “Quebrantahuesos” (bone cracker, named as bird of prey) a cycle race of 200 km along the Pyrenees Mountains.

      Thank you Baldo, I want a tall-bike even more now!
      Cascoloco’s is the most professionally built tall-bike I’ve ever seen, I’d want more of a “spray-paint & stickers” urban cruiser ;^)
