BMX Pro Rider Performs Tricks on a Citi Bike

Tyrone Williams performs wheelies, jumps, and other impressive bike tricks on a Citi Bike in this video made by ANIMAL New York.

There’s a lot of talk about the limitatons of Citi Bikes: they’re heavy, people say, they’re slow, and they’re more suited to boring workday commutes than cycling that’s exciting in any way. In the spirit of testing those supposed limits, we asked street BMX king Tyrone Williams — co-owner of Chinatown bike shop Dah Shop and Animal Bikes team rider — to take one for a spin and show everyone how it’s done.
