Discussion in 'Circus and Stage Clowning' started by Pinkberry, Apr 20, 2013.
Directly had to think of this one. What does a clown with a bike? At 5:40 the fun with the bike starts
Justin Case's act is just fantastic.
A tiny bike act which has developed a little notoriety is from Bobby Hunt, aka "Circus Boy."
Presently touring with Culpepper & Merriwether Circus are "Judy and Punchy" (Michelle Musser and Nathan Holguin - formerly of Ringling Red.) While I don't know for certain if it is featured on this year's show, "Judy" does have a comedy cycling act of her own.
That picture with the cyclist who has wheels on his head and back reminds me of a street statue performer who I saw recently in San Francisco by the bay.
You can see all kinds of odd and interesting cycling creations at the monthly ride of Critical Mass Chicago:

I saw this thread and couldn’t wait to take some pictures of some bikes that I am currently working on….
I bought a wire-feed welder about two years ago, and started hacking some interesting bikes.
The first one is still a work in progress, I still have to re-assemble the crank, and re-lace a larger rear wheel. (I want it to have coaster breaks and not have to mess with a much longer rear brake cable) I also have to get new inner tubes and re-upholster the seat.
The next one is a modified unicycle… I have to cross-bolt the unicycle frame to the head set (I couldn’t get the handlebar stem tight enough for safe steering) Clean-up some of the welds, and paint it. This one needs a horn and head light, but the cool part of it, is that I can semi-quickly change it back to a unicycle.
(Oh yeah… that’s Ziggy and Oden, our goats also posing in the pictures)
The last picture is a bunch of bike that our Landlord/Property Manager gave me, so I can chop-up and re-build more bikes this Summer.
My Burning Man bike (the trike thing in the background) was the second bike that I hacked.....
Not sure if I wanna make a "tall bike"... (see the stilt walker picture in the first post) I like the idea, but I don't realy want to ride one....So maybe I will make one just for the fun of it....
Heck... I got enough parts to do so.....
Why haven't I seen this topic before? Some are hilarious.
OK... this isn't a Clown bike, But Arron Jr. (the 5 year old I'm making it for) doesn't really want a funny bike.....
I have to finish some of the welds, and then grind and finish them up....well then a cool paint job....
But the next one is going to be a short, tall bike...
I happened upon the Critical Mass ride yesterday, but was disappointed at the lack in number of creative and novel sort of cycles which I have seen at some of their rides in the past.
