Flat pedals and supple feet
To ride flat pedals well, you have to let your feet move with the bike and terrain. Your feet have to be supple.

Interesting. The tread on the tire isn’t moving. Everything else is moving normally.
That’s really cool.

Crazy. I guess the knob locations are in sync with the frame rate?
Perhaps the rider is so in tune with his bike that he did that on purpose. A feat only few can accomplish.

Well said Grasshopper. When you’re riding that fast, it’s no longer good enough to simply relax. You have to actively move your feet with the bike (or move your bike with your feet …).

I’ve seen similar tire “freezing” on other videos such as – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-xSP_bsd8Q
Something to do with the film frame rate and rotational speed of the tire I’d assume.
