In honor of the Hamster Ball

Posted by on February 15th, 2009 at 11:57 am

The Ben Hurt Chariot Wars left their mark on Zoobomb’s Mini Bike Winter 2009 yesterday. I wasn’t there (I’m still in Guadalajara), but I just came across an amazing short video from my friend Felix. I knew I was missing something special by not being at MBW this year, but I did not expect this…

Behold, the Hamster Ball:
2013 Multnomah County Bike Fair-44
Awesome.

Thanks Dad and everyone else for all the positive comments. There were a few of us working on this and several late nights to get it together in time for the chariot wars. Our maiden voyage was Saturday morning on the way to the brunch meetup spot, and we hadn’t even tried to flip it yet. We were pretty excited when it worked later on our first try. Chariot war was brutal this year (as always), but the double flip-bike survived intact to roll another day.
