Wow what's the chance of 2 trucks with identical yellow cabs being right next to each other? Great job. Two thumbs up unless I am on my Strida since I cannot ride it with no hands.

Definitely fake. In the real video there is no bike and the first "police" car is actually the fleeing suspect's car, which has been altered in thios video.

Real video here:

Talk about inattentional blindness! Who else didn't notice the radical differences in appearance of the first cop car (which is the perp's car in the original, doctored to be a cop car in the fake bike version) to the other cop cars (which are real cop cars from the original)?

FAKE OR NOT, it was exciting to watch! (about 20 times so far) and I still cringe when the "cyclist" squeezes through!

The anchorman talks to the correspondent so realistic that I had no doubts at first that it was real. I still do not understand how it could be a fake, but the existence of the original movie is a convincing argument.

Maybe the "original" movie is a fake? Maybe they removed the cyclist from it to spare the police an embarrassment and to maintain the political correctness? More strange things do happen nowadays.

I think the fact that a bike manufacturer is mentioned in the filename makes it pretty obvious this is fake.
