Ride BMX threw a huge jam in Long Beach this past weekend and we brought out some bikes for everyone to play around on. There’s some clips of it in the video above, along with plenty of awesomeness from all the dudes who came out and rode.

You may have seen some photos of this tall bike floating around the internet these past few days and we decided to put together a little bike check featuring all of the parts we ended up using to make it happen. The hardest part to make this bike a reality was having a solid steering mechanism (we ended up having to use 4 headsets) and getting the right sprocket size combos to get the chain tension right through out the whole drive-terrain. The end result is a ridiculously tall bike with a lot of parts and a top wheel that rolls backwards when the bike is rolling forwards.
A huge thanks goes out to Rob at CM Speed for doing the welding for us!
