What an awesome adventure!! Thanks for all the support and all those beautiful smiles.
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
6.5 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" - youtu.be/hTMrlHHVx8A
STOOPIDTALL, is the inbetween from that one (Kafourki) and the world record tallest bike that i'll be building later this year.
Thank you to all the Los Angelopes who guided STOOPIDTALL through the sea of fellow cyclists!
Thanks to all the photographers and videographers who documented STOOPIDTALL's Maiden Voyage!
And SUPER Thanks to LAPD and the Traffic Enforcement officers that allowed us passage to brighten people's day.
What's Next? STOOPIDTALL will be featured in ZEN DOG, an indie film shooting in JULY - zendogmovie.com and facebook.com/zendogmovie
