This video makes me a little dizzy. Wow. Check out that shadow at 2:48 in the video (and the photos at the end!)

As the YouTube video says,

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.

My last tallbike was just under 10ft tall at the seat and you can see us featured in 30 Seconds to Mars’ music video, “Kings and Queens” –
STOOPIDTALL, is the inbetween from that one (Kafourki) and the world record tallest bike that i’ll be building next this year.

Thank you to all the Angelopes who guided STOOPIDTALL through the sea of fellow cyclists!

And thanks to all the photographers and videographers who documented STOOPIDTALL’s Maiden Voyage!

Much love, Richie
