I bought a Giraffe back in 1982 or so, a Schwinn 6'er. It mostly sat in my mom's storage space until I started the NYUC back in 2001. Then one day in around 2004 or 2005, some men rode down from uptown; they were all on 6' Giraffes. I was astounded to see that they did a rolling jump-mount, and two of them were my height (about 5'10"). They were so fluid!

I spent the better part of that afternoon learning the mount, but I never got it as smooth and effortless as they did. But at least my 20-year-old Giraffe was strong enough to withstand my attempts.
