That is just nuts! I wouldn’t feel comfortable at that height on a fixed tower of similiar design. And I used to jump out of airplanes
Sem Good Luck! Can’t wait to see you do it! And I am sure you will.
has anybody figured out a way to take out at least some of the stretch in a chain that long (either that or some other type of drive system). Looking at these videos, the pedaling is going a lot faster than the wheel, I’m assuming that’s just stretch in the chain drive at that height.
There are also some pictures of Steve McPeak riding a zig-zag giraffe on a high wire in Jack Wiley’s book “The Unicycle Book”. There are also several other pictures of Steve in “The Unicycle Book”. I don’t have “The Unicycle Book” so I can’t check on the pictures. I’m pretty sure they were pictures of Steve McPeak, but they could have been Peter Rosendahl. My memory is getting bad in my old age.
given the fact that sem is about to make the whole ‘controversy’ very academic, i’m curious to know if mcpeaks himself ever responded to the ‘allegations’?
did the guiness people ever acknowledge the fact that there was a dispute?
will mcpeaks be invited to sem’s record attempt?
(i know in a lot of sports it’s quite normal for the holder of a longstanding record to be invited to the game where his record is likely to be broken, hence the question)
Check out the new test riding pictures of the tallest unicycle in the
world! Notice anything about the world’s tallest giraffe that other
giraffe’s don’t have? Fantastic unicycle and the rider … WOW.
The pictures are amazing! Go to http://semcycle.com/ right

Anyone planning to be there for the official ride at the end of this
Good luck Sem! Way to go!
Nice website of the unicycle, construction and testing of it. Great photos, it must have been one crazy cold day. Good thing you’ll be doing the Guinness book of world records ride inside, in the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, MI. I hope the Silverdome is heated.
