Video: Florida's 51-Year-Old Wheelie Master
@bamabang: I guess my point is that wheelies and big wheeled bikes have been around since the early days of BMX. Big wheeled bikes were called cruisers (still called beach cruisers). OM helped come up with a new class racing BMX - the cruiser class - for bigger wheeled bikes. Hence SE coming out with the OM Flyer in 1979 with 26" wheels. The cruiser class got more competitive and the bikes became lower slung and on 24" wheels as things progressed but those early cruisers certainly share a lot with the modern wheelie bike. And the wheelie and bmx have gone together since before that photo of Breithaupt and his buddy's on Stingrays. We used to ride wheelies when riding around near the hotel at away BMX races in the mid 80's (I would actually ride my cruiser as it was more comfortable than the 20"). Shit I still crank out a manual on any paved section when riding my DJ bike to the trails almost 40 years later. 1979 Illustration from Bob Haro - wheelie on Laguna beach cruiser: www.oldschoolmags.com/haro_art/H_art18.jpg

Riding is easy compared to skating - he is crazy good on a bike but damn that Rock n Roll at 0:24 is the real deal!

That dude shreds - his footage from Highland is always solid. I couldn't believe he turned 60 this summer. I thought he was years younger than me!

This dude is help keeping Scot Breithaupt's dream alive and well. Nice move by SE and Todd Lyons to put him on the team.

Pinkbike Poll: Which of These 60 Notable Mountain Bikers Do You Recognize?
Not sure if this counts but I was in line right behind Paola Pezzo at some grocery store at Mt Snow, VT mid 90's (1995?). If anyone remembers her from that timeframe you'll know why I could hardly breathe. I remember she had a crazy amount of gallon containers of waters. Also saw Ned Overland and Tomac battling at Mt Snow that same era. Actually I would hear Tomac first with the drum sound of that Tioga rear wheel he ran then.

Any chance for a "behind the scenes" edit? Like the first bit of video where he talks about hitting his bar on the tree. I feel like there is a lot more going on in this edit and would love to see his process for run up, landing and exit. Unless he is such a bad ass he just looks at it once and does it.
