    Another kind of tall bike.

    When you are too tall to fit in a car, you can still ride a bike. World's tallest man Leonid Stadnik can attest to that.



    Here are a couple of stories about him and his bike.

    He still needs more seatpost! He's got that cruiser geometry going, hahah.

    But it's good to see someone looking so joyful and pumped to be riding a bike. He probably hasn't been able to ride one since he was like ten years old, when he was probably six five.

    Looks like he also might need some wider tires or higher psi. I think he'd pinch flat after hitting one pothole, which are probably numerous in his neck of the woods. I also like those handlebars, they're probably those gigantic apehangers for chopper bikes with a bmx style cross brace added. Sweet.
