so we all know how these competitions work by now, and i don’t have to explain what you have to do because it’s in the title.
this thread is obviously exlusive of myself, i’m looking to push a little old school out of some new guys, i don’t see anything bigger than 6 sets anymore…
i know i’m pushing the envelope for a lot of riders, i’ll let 9 and 11 sets count because i know that not everyone has a “10 set” sitting in thier backyard.
rules: contest can be won by a person who has rolling hopped a stairset, but is doing the stairset by sidehopping (good luck, its scary on monster stairsets)
otherwise, stairs must be cleared all at once, clipping of the last stair is allowed so long as the rider stays on the unicycle, also, the jump must be ridden out on film, no short cutting the shot to disguise bails.
helmets are not required, but VERY STRONGLY suggested.
How many stairs will a 1.4m (4 and a half foot) rolling hop get me down? I do them riding pretty fast which will help to clear stairs. I need to go stair hunting sometime. I can clear 5 sets by a metre.
how about giving some dimensions of a 10 stair so that if someone feels that their 8 set has pretty big steps they can see how it matches up against your 10 stair. I’ll probably be able to find one though.
Any chance to spot me a a few stairs off for my age lol? I’ve rolling hopped and cleared a good sized 8 set, and just today I side hopped a full, tall 6 stair cleanly. I know that’s 4 short of a 10 set, but I’m an old fart haha! Maybe I’ll go out tomorrow and try to side hop that 8 set I did.
I found a much longer than normal 7 set, and after measuring it from the top stair to the bottom, it turned out to be a little longer than the average 8 sets I’ve seen.
The 7 set had each stair about 1.5" lower than what I normally find, and also they were a solid 1.5" longer than normal as well, so It was like a very low 8 set. Harder for me because I’m lower to the ground to start with, and therefore have to catch air longer, and project out further than usual to clear them all.
