Today at school I checked out Guiness book of world records 2006, and on the peice of paper (kinda glued) to the back of the book cover had a bunch of pictures and one of them was a unicyclist… I think he was on like a black 29" and a shirt with a (bear?) on a unicycle .
I looked around in the book and I couldnt find the record or anymore pictures Does anyone know who that was and what the record was for?
I was suspected of being this unicyclist because I own such a T-shirt.
but, though I drink galons of Guinness I doubt the company will sponsor me
moreover my 29er is not black (…) and I am probably twice the age of the guy. so mystery … who else has a t-Shirt with Bongo the bear?
In the 2007 version, many unicyclist made the world record book. Two that I can remeber was tallest giraffe unicycle ridden with harnass, it was around 114 ft. And heighest acid drop, which was about 9ft.
I’m pretty sure that was Alex Toms who did the highest drop. It was 2.5 metres. He also did the longest handrail grind, I think it was about 13 stairs. This was all a few years ago. it has been beaten though. pretty sure Mike Clark. I wonder where he’s gone. haven’t seen much of the crankflip inventor.
Wow, Steve must have been an early adopter of the airfoil rim. When did they come out? People didn’t start getting their hands on the first Cokers until late 1998. But it definitely looks like an airfoil.
The bear on the front of his shirt is from the book Bears On Wheels, a Bright and Early book though not authored by Dr. Seuss. The shirt was probably home/hand-made, as I’ve never seen one before.
