Want a good belly laugh, or perhaps to have your head explode, check out this WSJ “opinion” video about the new bike share program in NYC.
I honestly don’t know what happened to the WSJ, they used to be right wing, but not like this. Its like they stepped off the cliff and and didn’t notice they are falling though space.
I almost feel bad for this old lady ranting about the totalitarian government and how they are enforcing the bike share on these poor innocent civilians, but then I listen to the actual words coming out of her mouth and I just can’t work up any sympathy for her.
The older generation should be ashamed with what they have done with this planet, and they should count their lucky stars that the young-ins haven’t put them on trial for crimes against the bio-sphere.
A bike share program is just one small step in making this planet just a smidge more livable, and she talks about it like its some sort of fascist death camps. Hyperbole stacked on hyperbole layered in ignorance, with just a dash of crazy. A video well worth watching and laughing at.

Holy shit…thats a very tall bike. Watch to the end for scale.
It’s safe to say that you probably won’t see this bike on public streets again any time soon. What an awesome adventure, but too much risk to bring around others. 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 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” – http://youtu.be/hTMrlHHVx8A
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

I think I would crash right into something because I would be fascinated with looking at my speed in the light, but pretty neat hack.

Long story short, shouldn’t be too big of a deal (for cyclists). There is the Mass Ave bridge for those weekends when this thing is a nightmare.
