    Amazing Rider........

    Most of us in this forum probably don't have the balance we once had, but I was never this good.

    Not even in my dreams........

    That is amazing! My grandson was mesmerized. Looks like great fun. Makes me want to go back 50 yrs. But then, we didn't have bikes like that. That rear hub must be clutched. Sometimes he was coasting, other times he was pedaling backward.

    I wonder if I can modify my hybrid....

    I mean no disrespect to JoeyBike, but I am sure even he would agree that he is not even on the same planet as Danny MacAskill.

    Not 100% sure but I believe he was not really pedaling backwards but just moving his feet around for balance. Looked like he was pedaling but not really. I never saw him go more than a turn backwards.

    I had seen this before but watched it twice now because it/he was so cool doing that stuff.

    Definitely Mind Boggling.

    I noticed that back pedaling. I'd like to find out a bit more about that bike, or bikes. I saw at least two.

    Are you sure you wanted your grandson to see that one? I hope you pointed out the first few errors Danny made when trying to ride that fence at the beginning. That could give a young boy ideas.

    Great to see that clip again -- thanks for posting it up! I dunno what it is about this kind of trials-y/mtb riding I find so appealing -- it's ridiculous and hurts even to be watching this stuff at my age, but I can't help it

    That's nothing! I can do that with my eyes closed. Wonder how many bones he has broken over the years?

    Even without broken bones, he'll be hurtin' in about 20 years. Looks lot he puts lots of stress on knees and ankles.
