Tall bikes are cool. They’re DIY, creative and usually funky personal projects where the creator has brought 2 – 3 scavenged frames and parts together to create something fun and challenging to ride. In April of 2013 for ‘cicLAvia to the sea’ Richie Trimble debuted something so monstrous it’s become it’s own phenomenon: StoopidTall.

14.5stoopidtallRichie wore a ‘GoPro’ and the video had over a million hits within days. It’s insane to watch from the safety of a computer and kind of mind blowing to realize he rode it 15+ miles through LA surrounded by moving traffic, 110,000+ other cyclists, most of which have no experience riding bikes and have never seen anything like this. StreetsblogLA captured the moment rather well.

STUPIDTALL is 14.5′ tall and barely made it under one of the freeway overpasses the cicLAvia route was on. And then they went to San Francisco to shoot a commercial and STOOPIDTALL got a fancy paint job!
