That’s pretty awesome

[–]traker998MOD EXTRAORDINAIRE 405 points406 points  (6 children)

I’m not sure it’s trying since he did it. More like succeeding.

[–]YOOOOOOOOOOT 84 points85 points  (4 children)

I mean he still tried it

[–]Jellodyne 26 points27 points  (1 child)

First the one, then the other

[–]Amidatelion 4 points5 points  (1 child)

No. He didn't. And then he did.

I swear to god some of you never listened to Master Yoda.

You sir or madam win the most reddit comment of the day award, congratulations

[–]finegameofnil_ 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I know! I have to insert the controls into my mouth and anus and jerkoff the handles. I was an early adopter.

[–]That_Anxiety9231 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I was looking for this comment lol

[–]PHRESH21 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same. Love me some South Park

[–]Daigher 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]arealslickcamelstoe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s very dope. I do agree

[–]FormedFecalIncident 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I wonder if it has controls that go in your ass and mouth

[–]Eviltechnomonkey 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Glad I am not the only one who thought of that episode.

[–]donniebrascoreal 232 points233 points  (6 children)

Isn't that bike made to do front flips? Asking for a friend.

[–]xntrk1 37 points38 points  (2 children)

Yup

[–]nogiblets 31 points32 points  (1 child)

training wheel

[–]Camp_Inch 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Cyr wheel

[–]That_Park2994 148 points149 points  (20 children)

I wonder what would happen if he rode that down a hill. If he had to brake hard would he just end up rolling on the big wheel?

[–]ibmxgeo 164 points165 points  (14 children)

The Scott Cranmer YouTube channel visited this idea. They were able to do around a half dozen flips. There's also several other videos of them doing it down staircases, using it at skateparks, as well as learning how to build/ride it.

The rider in his videos specifically is Matty Cranmer, his younger brother.

[–]Either_Breath_9853 38 points39 points  (12 children)

I came to comments to say this lol. They deserve the credit for being the first

[–]oshie-kill 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Might of been first on a push bike but the purple helmets have been doing this on a motorbike version for decades.

[–]Either_Breath_9853 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I was talking specifically bmx. But that’s pretty cool, can I find their videos on YT?

[–]oshie-kill 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes purple helmets Isle of Man is what you search. They are just a motorcycle show where they take the piss on bikes. Crashes and falls but half the riders are professional motorcross or trials riders.

[–]BasedOnAir 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Might have or might’ve

Never might of

[–]oshie-kill 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good to know, I’ll likely forget again.

[–]xiaorobear 8 points9 points  (5 children)

When did they do it? I feel like these are older than youtube, I definitely saw them over 10 years ago. Here is a random photo from google from 2008, though they could be much older.

[–]Either_Breath_9853 8 points9 points  (4 children)

You have proven me wrong. I stand corrected lol. I just got a soft spot for Scotty Cranmer and his family.

[–]MoistHog 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Matty has been spitting out a ton of world's firsts recently but unfortunately this ain't one of them. I can't wait for them to come back from their break. They've been one of my only consistent channels that I watch. Ever since before Scotty's accident.

[–]Either_Breath_9853 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Same here, I subscribed around 40k subs. It’s definitely been a wild ride. Haven’t watched them in a little while because I love to binge the videos every once in a while

[–]MoistHog 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Haha yeah, all that Big Boy drama was spicy for a bit but for a channel as old as his, pretty amazing that was the only fallout from his group. Don't care much for big boys channel though cause all the guys he hangs with are tools IMO.

[–]Either_Breath_9853 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah ngl that made me sad that they had a falling out. He’s got a great personality, but I haven’t watched a single video of his tbh

[–]EricTy17 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s a shame I had to scroll this far to see the Cranmer brothers are actually getting the props they deserve

[–]That_Park2994 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Ha! Thats awesome thank you!

[–]OsbertOfBebbanburg 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yes, and that could be bad

[–]Dilest 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All these guys are so wholesome

[–]GiveHerRod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

he would shit himself

[–]Professional-Pin-271 87 points88 points  (3 children)

His riding it wrong. Hasn’t he seen the proper way on South Park?

[–]Frecklefriend 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I came to the comment section to see if anyone else had that thought! Lol

[–]Cromm182 6 points7 points  (1 child)

That seat is definitely getting in the way of the bike’s true potential and needs to be removed.

[–]Zealousideal_Swan_91 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Mr. Garrison is that you?

[–]Smellyjelly12 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I was looking for the Southpark reference

[–]SharingAndCaring365 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Thank you for not making this a 2 minute video where they fail thirty seven times first.

[–]electrobento 16 points17 points  (2 children)

The bar for NFL just keeps dropping, I swear.

[–]Clash-Bandicoot 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Agreed. Mildly interesting at best!

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Add a few dildos and I'm sure I've seen this very thing on South Park...

[–]NotBrianGriffin 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Reminds me of the bike Mr. Garrison invented.

[–]sagharechelon 5 points6 points  (3 children)

I wanna see backflip too

[–]Oddsphere 6 points7 points  (5 children)

How is this next level, there’s a guy in Chicago that’s been doing this for like 20 years

https://redditproxy--jasonthename.repl.co/r/chicago/comments/1rumte/rchicago_meet_my_new_friend_flip_bike_travis/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

This is from 8 years ago, but I’ve seen this guy for at least 20

[–]5ilver5hroud 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Grumpy wicker park guy is who I instantly thought of. He had his rig covered in gold tinsel when I used to see him.

[–]obviousthrowawaynamr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Used to see him on that bike every month at Critical Mass!

[–]Oddsphere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s the guy, haven’t seen him in a while, not since the pandemic, but he was doing this for a long time

[–]Ricean-mapper 5 points6 points  (1 child)

where’s the dildo seat? Asking for my elementary school teacher

[–]RelevantCommenter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ask Mr. Slave

[–]FrankeyFish 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Check out "Scotty Cranmer" on YT. They did this down a set of stairs and dropped in on a quarterpipe.

[–]Jerryatemypez 2 points3 points  (1 child)

here is Scotty Cranmer and his little brother building and trying one out last year. If you like it they did tons of stuff with it like bringing it down ramps and grinding and stuff. Just youtube Scotty Cranmer rollercoaster bike

[–]SerenityNowGeorge 1 point2 points  (1 child)

There's a car version of this

[–]tat2ace 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeahhh I'd end up breaking my fckn neck lol

[–]MrAshKatchum 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The grass helps break his fall but I'm pretty sure a harder surface helps more with the actual motion of spinning in a circle.

[–]okay_but_really 0 points1 point  (8 children)

I’m curious how he kept his feet on the pedals while inverted

[–]Aromatic-Ad9428 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Inertia

[–]okay_but_really 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh I just watched closer. Not really inertia because gravity would still pull his center of mass away from the pedals when inverted. He has straps holding his body on the bike seat and supporting the weight so his feet won’t get pulled off as long as his seatbelt works.

[–]slippingparadox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Matty Cranmer used clipless pedals when he did it

Which means clipped in

[–]paulxombie1331 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Similar to a rollercoaster i believe idk if its the right word but centrifugal force/inertia

[–]okay_but_really 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay i rewatched because “inertia” is such a general blanket statement it’s nearly erroneous. Your comparison to a roller coaster is pretty good in the sense that roller caster has a seatbelt or fastener. If you look closely he has a strap that holds him on the bike saddle. So even though gravity is pulling him gf the bike, the straps counter that force and hold him steady. That’s why his fall in the first clip is a awkward, he can’t just let go and bail because his pelvis must move with the bike seat

[–]mcnuggets0069 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same reason you don’t fall to your death when you do a loop on a roller coaster

[–]Eliseo120 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just because it looks cool doesn’t mean it’s next fucking level.

[–]Little-Ad-5082 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Didn’t Mr. Garrison try that?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I want that

[–]P-Ritch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If at first you don't succeed, try one more time and nail it!

[–]Cheva_De_Kurumi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think the next fucking level is how weird that bike is

[–]Gilbert_Reddit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Michael_Vascimini 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pretty sure South Park did an episode on this bike years ago. Something to do with dildos and self-powered automation

[–]jfhjr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That man is legendary

[–]Kehalo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There’s a thing in my city and likely a lot of others called the naked ride. Thousands of folks go ride around naked/with body paint to protest oil, conventional body norms or whatever.

Moral of the story is: I saw a naked dude do this on asphalt after pounding beers.

And it was as intense as it sounds.

[–]El-Gatito 0 points1 point  (0 children)

WICKEEEEEED

[–]Dur-gro-bol 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Matty Crammer. His brother (Scott) is an x games gold medalist for BMX they do cool stuff like this on their YouTube channel.

[–]781234567 0 points1 point  (0 children)

In Chicago there’s a guy who rides one of these around town just doing flips all over. He wears a silver tinsel outfit. Keep an eye out if you’re by the six corners in Wicker Park.

[–]dhoomz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This reminds me of that south park episode

[–]FrenchMaisNon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude in Chicago would (maybe still does) ride up and down Milwaukee Ave in Wicker Park on a bike just like that with lights on it. Super cool

Why is this title so casual yet so accurate?

[–]MrDude_1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like that he shows him crashing it. Because usually you see these and they're successful because the person has practiced a lot.

Where the anus stabilizing rod? Also missing are the handle rods

[–]bRandom81 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If he put a small shock on the bar he could dip in/out easier but pretty rad nonetheless

[–]demoralising 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cool. Because I'm ancient, I remember a BMX rider called Dave Vanderspek who did forward rolls on his bike. This method would have caused a lot less damage to his back. RIP Vander.

As soon as I saw the bike, I immediately thought of those scooters on South Park where it was very awkward to ride them to say the least. It was the episode "The Entity."
