UNDATED (KTHV)-What is it like to ride a 14.5 ft tall bike?
Richie Tremble busted out his bike, named StoopidTall, at the 2013 CicLAvia event and recorded the entire ride for the world to see everything for his view.
While the view, which can be found on YouTube, is breathtaking, you're left to wonder just what would happen if you fell from that height. Not good things to be sure.
Tremble also gave the measurements for his bike and how he built it on video's description:
14.5ft at the Seat
Built in 12 work hours
One Huffy beach cruiser, 2" square tubing, 3/4" round tubing, and 1" round tubing
26" single speed coaster brake wheelset
6 1/2 single speed bicycle chains (32.5ft of chain)
To bend the pipe i used an upside down shopping cart and a split log. Ghetto, i know, but hey - IT WORKS.
