Default Big Wheel Rally

Any other Colorado guys going to make it out to the 28th Almost-Annual Matt Armbuster Memorial Big Wheel Rally on Saturday? Roll up and down Pearl making stops for booze and races along the way. End the night with a race down the 6 story parking garage. All proceeds to benefit St. Joe's Hospital. I will be there, not sober and very likely dressed as a cow.

Oh, there will be pictures. I can't see this ending well. Already wrecked tonight. Wheels went flying everywhere. Modifications to be made tomorrow.

I had a big wheel when I was a kid. Loved it.

One kid a couple of streets over had what was called a "green machine". We all thought that was pretty ghey.

My absolute favorite was that two-wheeled contraption that the "driver" cranked the wheels by hand until enough inertia was created. Stopping that thing was a disaster (which is prolly why it doesn't exist anymore).

Since the wheels were independant, we'd see how long you could spin in it before you puked. Good Times for a pre-teen.

Green Machines are back in the stores'

This event looks awesome, Except for the guy that left his 7 year old outside alone while he goes into the bars!

I would definitely be down for this if my town was cool.

Where did you get a big wheel?

16-Inch Original Big Wheel : Target

My boys B-day is coming soon. I might just have to pony up for one.

I guess they don;t have the hand brake anymore either. Or, my old one was a knock (cheap parents) but, I remeber good time with the handbrake.
