That is an old-fashioned unicycle trick. They are using fixed-gear bikes. If you try that with a freewheel, you will fall and break your face.

People have been doing stuff like that on bikes since the 19th century. But you have to admire the skills these two have. They are pretty impressive. It should be a class of Olympics gymnastics.

Here's one trick-fixie rider that Thomas Edison filmed in 1899.

Incredible.

Damn fixie-riding kids are always showing off. I'd like to see one ride backwards up Mt. Washington.

Oh boy, synchronized ballet cycling event...just what I want to see at the Olympics. I'm getting my tickets now.

I think I remember seeing some circus monkeys do that.
