    I have a new set of wheels in my kitchen, so I tried doing a push-up by holding a wheel in each hand. I fell right over.

    Can anyone do it?

    is there a cassette on the rear hub? 12-27's offer the best grip for pushups. Are skewers installed?

    Ok, no one has tried it yet. I dare someone to give it a try.

    26 inch wheels, tires about 30psi, hold the tire and the rim with each hand, and try using the wheel as a platform for a pushup.

    Okay, so you have two wheels and you're holding them upright, one in each hand. Is that correct?

    You should try the "rim stomp" game.
    1.) Take a rim that hasn't been laced up
    2.) Stand it on edge.
    3.) Jump up
    4.) on to
    5.) The rim
    6.) With both feet, and try to taco it. I reccomend doing it on concrete.

    I tend to loose as I'm only 140lbs, so most double wall rims land me on my a**.

    Oh and your automaticaly disqualified if the rim could be used by someone else.
