From Pub Idea To Guinness World Record: French Friends Build World's Tallest Rideable Bicycle
Two friends from France, Nicolas Barrioz and David Peyrou, have achieved a Guinness World Record for building the tallest rideable bicycle.
Their creation, nicknamed “Starbike,” towers over riders at a staggering 25 feet, 5 inches tall, surpassing the previous record by a significant 1 foot, 2 inches.

The idea for this sky-high bicycle originated during a casual pub conversation.

Fueled by inspiration, Barrioz and Peyrou embarked on a five-year journey, dedicating two years to the construction itself.

The process undoubtedly had its challenges, as Barrioz alluded to in his statement to Guinness World Records: “It is not possible to tell you the blood, sweat, and tears.”

Despite the difficulties, their perseverance paid off.

Starbike now holds the official title of the world’s tallest rideable bicycle.

The bicycle is made from alloys, steel, and wood, which were mostly obtained from recycled furniture.

Nicolas and David are now considering breaking another world record by building the smallest rideable bicycle. The current record is 8.4 cm (3.31 in), nearly 100 times smaller than their supersized bike.
