    I imagine if the wheel is real then the rim is counter-weighted.

    The rim has a braking surface and the bike has a brake on it. There is no way that a wheel built like that could withstand braking forces.

    Shenanigans.

    if you watch the very last second or two of it, as the guy moves towards the bike, you can see the rim like go in and then back out, editing mistake or something...

    fake

    you would think that they would at least build the wheel with the spoke across from the valve. total jackassness.

    when people write like this i imagine a fat nerd spewing doritos out of his mouth and snorting like a pig. the voice is of nick burns, your company's computer guy.

    thats pretty sweet, although i want to see someone riding it, and braking from a speed greater then 40km/h. and then doing a bar spin

    How does a Thermos know when to stay warm, and when to stay cold?
