There’s a czech chap a few days behind the Tour on a penny farthing…
maybe he could borrow it?

Watching the guy go down hills, pedals spinning in a blur, is truly
awesome…

That’s funny. :smiley:

To clarify, the uni comment. I looked at the Penny Farthing site, and that is on huge wheel! I wonder how it handles on the uphills. Does it say anywhere on the site how big it is?

I’d say 42 inch… I don’t know why :roll_eyes:

You must’ve made that number 9 one about unicycling up cause this is what CBS’s site listed although I do think your’s is much better than this number 9;

Top Ten Signs Lance Armstrong Is Getting Cocky

  1. Race starts at 9, Lance rolls out of bed around noon

  2. Has already figured out that the trophy can hold a 3-gallon margarita

  3. He eats frosting by the fistful

  4. For the last leg, he rode one of those crazy 1920s bikes with the big front wheel

  5. Deliberately crashing into things to get more air time on sportscenter

  6. Making a couple extra bucks delivering pizzas during the race

  7. After the starter pistol is fired, he hangs around hitting on french babes

  8. Turns to the other riders and says, “oooh, I’m sooooo scared”

  9. Instead of training, spent last 2 months pimping his bike

  10. Has started selling ad space on his ass

I turned off the TV too early last night; otherwise I could back up the reported unicycle listing.

1920s crazy bikes? :stuck_out_tongue:

I do not know where this penny farthing site is, but 42" is pretty tiny for a penny farthing wheel. That’s a size a kid might ride. My 45" uni always tends to look small when next to “adult” penny farthings. If the guy is trying to keep pace with the tour, I’d guess a wheel size closer to 60", depending on his size. Maybe a little less if he needs massive cranks to get up the mountains!

GO LANCE!

#9. For next two stages will be riding a unicycle

OK, sorry I guess I was wrong. Didn’t do my research good enough. The first top ten list I listed was from 2004, this is the newest one;

  8. During stage 18, took in the noon showing of “Wedding Crashers”

  9. On alternate days, substitutes his fat brother Dennis Armstrong

THanks for the correction!

Lance on uni

If Tour de France was done a unicycle-only, I bet Lance would STILL beat all comers after learning to ride a uni! :slight_smile:

Yep.

Re: Lance on uni

I bet he already knows how to ride a uni, not saying he is any good, but I bet he’s atleast learned to go forward.

I’m totaly killing this thread…
