Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

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...

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