      The guy on the bike riding superman style is a famous french cyclist who rides a fixed gear bike. On normal bikes, when you are a cruising to a stop or going downhill.... your pedals dont move. You can just casually coast without moving your feet. But his pedals are truly directly tied to his rear wheel. They smoke him going up hills. But nobody can compete with his aerodynamics going down hill. Watch as how his pedals are spinning as he is going down hill and how he clips back in. Dude has balls of steel. I would guess he is easily going over 40mph.

          I'm no bike person, but aren't those bikes called "fixed gear"? I see a lot of millinials and bike delivery guys riding what looks like a 10-speed but they are just fixed. Right?
