That does take a lot of skill. If you enjoy watching bicycles being ridden at the limits of what they can do, I recommend checking out Danny Macaskill, one of the finest trials riders on the planet. He does things on a bicycle I didn't think were possible until I watched him do it.

Saw the first video more than a year ago -- skills.

Macaskill is on another scale altogether -- he doesn't live here, just comes to Earth to ride.

Lenosky can make your jaw drop, too.

That McAskill is rubbish. His saddle's too low and he can't even balance or brake well enough to keep both wheels on the ground. And he sets a bad example by riding on the sidewalk all the time - it's a disgrace.
