Joel Weston Again Nov 27, 2009

Joel Weston’s Fakie Wheelies from John Prolly on Vimeo.

Edit: Apologies dudes, Joel kindly asked that the video would be removed. You’ll see more in the next Macaframa project.

More proof that Joel Weston is indeed blasting fakie wheelies. They’re looking better and better each video I see. If you still don’t believe he’s doing these, then I guess you’ll need to go out to SF to see for yourself! Next up, done in traffic maybe?

It seems like every few months someone comes up with a trick that stumps the fixed gear community. Tom did a nose-manual for Bootleg Sessions 2 and everyone was dumb-founded. Sam Miller, Tom Mosher, Ed Wonka and others keep pushing the envelope and raising the bar. Every week someone’s pushing the sport and It’s so exciting to see it unfold.

I’m still tickled to death that some someone tried to fake one of these. Big ups to Joel for single-handedly re-appropriating a trick to a street fixed gear. Mad respect man!

  • Terry B

    Damn these spy videos.
    Last week 3 different groups of people were shooting spy footage of Joel, one of which was a razor scooter gang.

  • Quarters

    Obviously hired the cars to modify their reverse-lights and drive backwards down the street while he did a regular wheelie.


  • Burd

    Obviously he’s doing that in front of a green screen and the forward moving traffic has been laid over the reversed footage of a normal wheelie in the editing room…

    Just kidding of course. That shit is killer. Methinks Mr. Weston has opened up a whole new can of worms…!
