Yeah, it was a little harder, I had to bend right down to get enough lift. My first attempt (while waiting for the camera, unfortunately) resulted in a pretty neat somersault on the ground infront of the Coker
Nice mounts! I’ve seen that first one before, but I don’t think it has any kind of “official” name accepted by the unicycling community. It is a variation on a jump mount, and I’ve most often seen it associated with clowns. It’s kind of funny, so in the rare occasions when you have clowns that can actually ride, it works well for them.
Kind of a ‘seat between the legs jump mount’ I think I’d call it. Yeah, my trick names are boring, but people don’t have to ask what they are if they haven’t seen them.
It looks like you started the camera over a few times. I would expect to have several takes for that sort of a trick. To anyone who can tell that WWF wrestling is fake, it’s obvious your mounts are quite real.
I watched a documentary on wrestling…sure the acts are fake, but all the physicallity of it is real.
they use real chairs
they throw people onto real (un modified)tables and break them
someone who picks up a guy over his head, and throws the other guy (even though the second guy is participating) through a table over the ropes and 6 or 7 feet down, these guys have my respect as athletes, that’s for sure.
Even though the guy isn’t ‘really’ bodyslamming the other guy, he still jumps from the top ropes onto his elbos and knees.
IN CASE ANYONE IS STARTING TO WONDER>>>I AM NOT A WRESTLING FAN!!!
The video…I think that skipping happened when I sliced and copied the section to show in slowmo. there were several takes, but each was on it’s own file
Great stuff! I’m a gonna have to try it now. I asked Ben to give it a shot to which he said, “I’m a little man with a big wheel, you’re a big man with little wheel. I think I’ll wait a year or two.” Speaking of WWF athleticism, I have to respect your ability as well to pull off such a mount. Congrats.
Are you heading to Minneapolis next summer? It would be great to put all these RSU folks together face to face. We’ll be there, or hopefully most of us will be. We’re only 5½ hours from the Twin Cities.
Doesn’t look promising…I think I may not be able to get to such a thing for a few years…but we’ll definetly hook up eventually
I figured it would be easier to lower the seat a lower than riding height…but the thought of you mentioning that (in retaliation to me about you) made me think different, so I left it up. I also had done it on video the previous day, but when I came to edit it, I noticed my hand hit the seat a nanosecond before the pedals…and I wasn’t about to post an attempted suicide mount.
