Get a Terrifying, First-Hand Look at What It’s Like to Ride a 15-Foot-Tall Bike
When’s the last time you really felt like a badass on a bicycle? Probably when your training wheels came off around the age of six. Well, fortunately for you, bike and oversized object enthusiast Richie Tremble has figured out a way to feel that sense of wobbly danger once again: a 14.5-foot, towering beach cruiser he calls the StoopidTall Tall Bike.
The impressively sturdy bike made its inaugural ride this past Sunday at Los Angeles’s CicLAvia, a mass celebration of alternative transportation. And assuming you currently enjoy being alive, Tremble was kind enough to video tape the entire thing, letting you get a sense of what it’s like to sit 14 feet up without any real risk. Not exciting enough for you? Well how about this—the bike doesn’t have breaks.
