Hey all, Jeff’s back in town! And with that is me smacking myself in the head for not bringing my pads (to try out his Bedford Trials BC wheel) and again for not charging the battaries on my camera, meaning I only could get two shots (sets of shots actually) of the actual highjump being done.
This was nuts. Correct me if I’m wrong, but Jeff cleared 2 feet on the first set of pictures, and something similar (I guessed at 1.5ft) on the second.
Here’s the pictures (hopefully this works, and you click on the picture to see the full set! hopefully!!!):

Very, very impressive! Can anyone else do extreme stuff on a bc wheel? I tried riding one at TOque, it seems impossible even to stay up on one! It looks like to me that Canadian’s are leading the revolution in one-wheel extreme trials. We’ve got Kris, Ryan, and now Jeff on his BC wheel!
Wow, those jumps are awesome. Rolling hops, I presume?
I don’t know if the world is ready (yet) for a competition of this. It’s one of those things with a fairly high cost of failure. In other words, spectacular dismounts with wheels shooting around and people landing on their elbows and butts. I’d wait until there are a few more proficient people doing it…
Now I will wait for Jeff to wheel walk the sucker.
Hmmm. Actually, with the right kind of foot supports, you could probably do one-footed stuff on one. Like gliding, or pushing off as on a skateboard.
