bike follows hips, hips follow shoulders, shoulders follow head.

I can do a 360 without my wheels leaving the ground, it's called riding in a circle (see also: backwards circles -- fixed gear forum). Any other permutation would either require the wheels (at least one) to leave the ground or a head full of acid.
