    Seen here practicing for the circus, Richie Trimble provides us with a first-person view of what it's like to ride his nearly 15-foot "Stoopidtall Bike'. The bike measures 12-feet to the pedals and 14.5 to the seat. That's high. Almost as high as you'd have to be to think a ... / Continue →

    This is artist Jimmy Kuehnle's invisible bike. It's made out of clear Lexan panels and, I don't know about you, but I can still see it. Jimmy's outfit: also cannot be unseen. I actually reached out to invisible jet owner Wonder Woman to see what she thought of Jimmy's bike, ... / Continue →
