I am not sure if this link is only available to Twitter users, so please excuse me if not as I cannot find the original thread on Youtube

If you can see the clip, turn up your volume. This is stunning....

looks and sounds great, but i reckon its fake. they've taken a model bike, spinning the back wheel with a drill and playing the sound of a real bike... the engine noise and gear changes dont match what the guys fingers are doing..

You may be right, but even if that is the case its a very clever illusion

TC is much smaller than you think. Like a borrower.

Look closely and the back wheel is resting on a spindle (being turned by a drill).
