You should actually make this a meme on mematic, people might like it as it definitely gave me a laugh.

u/DynamicPanspermia May 27 '22

Plus it might become a trend meme, which I think with the random thoughts of people, would be hilarious

Looks like a bike polo player. They have insane control!

u/roadtrip-ne May 27 '22

I’m thinking you could only do this with a fixed gear (you pedal backwards to break, but you can also go backwards if you wanted)

u/AIaris May 27 '22

yea i noticed hes definitely on a fixie, he pedals backwards to get the bike to spin back around. wouldn't be possible on anything without a fixed gear i dont think

u/yesnewyearseve May 27 '22

I don’t see it. To me it seems both his feet stay put while spinning backwards.

The wheel doesn't spin while executing the pivot. Bike looks like its a Cinelli track bike.

It's tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that's right on time

u/lineworksboston May 27 '22

This is much easier than it looks.

Imagine you're holding a ruler at the 4 inch mark with the 1 inch mark pointing towards you and the 12 inch mark pointing away.

Now add a 1 pound weight to the 12 inch mark and swing the ruler left and right.

Now move that weight to the 1 inch mark (behind your hand that's at the 4in mark) and try swinging left-right.

Its easier to swing the ruler with the weight at the 1 in mark (behind your hand) than it is to swing the ruler with the weight at the 12 inch mark (in front of your hand).

The bike is the ruler, the guy is the weight, the back wheel is your hand (the pivot point). All he's doing is moving his weight behind the pivot point while turning his wheel hard right. If he were to just turn his wheel hard right, he could not control his weight in front of the pivot point and he would likely loose his balance. By moving the weight behind the pivot point, it's much easier to control his weight so he doesn't fall over.

Seems like it might have been easier to go around

u/SnakeBeardTheGreat May 27 '22

He wasn't looking for easy.

Guy's too flamboyant to take the easy route.

u/lil_sargento_cheez May 27 '22

How is this even possible

1

u/PaulOnPlants May 27 '22

You need a fixed gear bike to do this, as pedaling backwards is required for this trick.

1

u/_swells May 27 '22

Yep, the cog on the back wheel is fixed, meaning any movement from the pedals directly corresponds to the back wheel - and there is an intimate connection with the road.

I’m the past at least, this was preferred transportation for many courriers in large cities, namely New York where there were docs that follow fixie life (what’s the main one, I’m blanking from my hipster college days?)

This feels like the bicycle version of Michael Jackson doing the moonwalk on stage.
