Very old, very huge ultimate wheel?

Look at this!


Nice picture. I seem to recall a post about two guys who rode around on huge ultimate wheels a long time ago. They preferred not to have seats apparently. And people ask us if we hurt our nuts!

As long as we’re talking about things on ebay, there’s a great deal on old style snafu pedals. This is the third set of five pedals this guy has sold, and so far they haven’t gone for more than $15 each. Get them while you can, they don’t make em anymore.

A Penny Farthing that’s lost it’s seat!

I know why the guy is wearing tights…

Clearly it’s a penny-farthing wheel. Many early unicycle performers apparently did this. I have pictures of Tom Miller doing it on a wagon wheel unicycle (ultimate) in 1980 or so. Mind your crotch!

Sebastian Hoeher’s book includes some old pictures from 188x, one similar to the picture you found at eBay, and one from a race with big wheels with handlebar, but without seat.
