    The firs thing I thought when I saw this was "no helmet?" but then I realized that if something goes south, it really won't matter.

    But what do you think, real or photochopped.

    im going to call photochop. the guy looks a little out of phasae with the rest of the pics, where his rear wheel meets the rail looks wierd, and he seems to be running a spokeless front wheel.

    Chopped. Biker looks too small compared to the railing.

    Its definately chopped. It would be easy with the rider against the sky.

    Also, the rider looks like he is leaning toward the camera too much. That fork is definately backwards-haha.

    i know, i think that too. but he decided halfway through to be a savage and do a wheelie drop. even though that wasnt his intention with this picture.

    BMX. See Dave Young, Jimmy Levan, Chris Toth or a ton others. Rigid doesn't mean you can't drop. But the photo is definitely chopped. That rail looks round, and to sit down wheelie a round rail is not happening. Manualing a 20 stair, 2" wide rail is do-able, but that is not. It's not worth it for anybody.

    judging from what i've seen crazy Brit trials riders do, i would assume (if seeing it somewhere other than this thread) it was legit.

    well then howdo you explain the backwards fork. lol. i mean it could be leggit but that would suck to put it down with a fork that is well backwards.

    Just look at him, his outline is all pixelated especially around his rear wheel.

    Is that a road under the bridge? or a bike path?

    If it's a road then the bike is wider than a lane.

    Even if it is a bike path, this rail is not a planter ledge, but a guard fence. I doubt there was an easy transition onto the rail.

    Also this guy is either a fat f*ck or wearing big baggies, neither would be a skilled trials rider.
