Trials riders Andrei Burton and Joe Seddon go for a ride around London, doing some stunts on Boris Bikes... or are they?

The latest trials video to hit YouTube looks to show two talented bike handlers putting in some impressive riding on London Cycle Hire bikes with some of the capital’s landmarks as a backdrop.

However, look closer and you’ll see that the bikes are actually mountain or trials bikes just dressed up as Boris Bikes – the real things do not have Magura rim brakes or discs, for starters. And you’d never be able to lift one up, either.

Still, we don’t want to be a party pooper – so enjoy the film courtesy of FightMe.
