It is cool, BUT it's not that practical...you just showed that there were multiple values of
cards....then they are all blank....guess what? The SPECTATORS now want to see the deck AND you
can't hand it out!! It's a cool effect, but this trick has sat in the drawer for more than 10 years
ago;when it was first put out!!! I'd highly recommend BLIZZARD or learn a deck a switch....sorry,
can't recommend it that much.

If you already have Fadeout or Colossal Blizzard, then you don't need to buy this. It alot similar
to Fadeout but you only get to throw in mentalism kick in which I'm not a big fan of mentalism but
my opinion, I think it pretty cool but Colossal Blizzard is whole lot better than this one and more
fun to do. I got this for 50 percent off because I want some new gimmick deck but it not special or
unique as I hope it will be. However, this is good for beginner and doesn't take much work. Deck
require little sleight of hand and good crowd control skill.

I have been using this in table hopping and walk around for 15 years. White Bikes really packs a
punch. I consistently get a GREAT reaction EVERY time.
Unfortunately another reviewer says
it has been in his drawer for 10 years because he was concerned that you can't have them examine the
deck. While this is true, at the end you can show/handle the deck quite freely, even if you cannot
hand it out. However, after having performed this trick hundreds of times, I do not ever recall a
single time when anyone asked me to examine the deck! Perhaps it is because they are stunned and are
trying to process what they just saw. Or perhaps they obviously see it is not a regular deck because
the faces are all blank. While I'm not sure why, it turns out that reviewers fear is unwarranted.
BUY IT, USE IT, and YOU'LL LOVE IT!

White Bikes is a great effect. Just when your audience thinks they have seen the "Tricks" you
casually knock their socks off with a killer finish. The reset is super easy and even a beginner
like me can look like a competent magician. It is denintly worth the price. Buy it!!!!

i received the white bikes deck about a week ago and have loved performing it so far! i actually
perform it the way it was originally made, i have not tried Matthew Johnson's version yet. i like
the original way because there are first, 2 magical moments, and finally the whole deck goes blank!!
one time, they actually thought the trick was over after their chosen card matched the prediction,
then itself changed colors! that's pretty powerful in and of itself, let alone afterwards making the
entire deck go blank. at the end i actually tell them i'm going to make the deck vanish right in
front of their eyes, i wait a second then tell them it's gone. they look at me funny until i turn
over the deck revealing everything is gone! i know i have not had it for super long but i have
performed it a lot and not one person has asked me to see the deck. if you present it correctly they
won't want to inspect the deck, they're satisfied with the piece of magic you just shared with them.
i'm also excited to try Matt Johnson's version. this is great for walk around and i highly recommend

White Bikes is easy to perform (the deck does virtually all the work) and, while I do most card
effects ungimmicked, this is a great addition to my magic library. A real crowd pleaser.
1) Gets a good reaction
2) Easy to perform
3) Great for walk around
5) Great opener, gets them ready for more.
It's a jaw dropper for sure. And easy to perform. Someone complained that you can't hand the cards
out at the end for examination. Ever see Copperfield let the audience come up on stage and poke
around his illusions after the effect? Just snatch the cards up and put em back in the case or your
pocket and walk away. Can't let the audience goof around with a bite out coin either. A little
audience control and you got it.
In a word "Awesome!"
I like very much this trick, very amazing and easy do - buy it!
This is a very good effect and gets great reactions, however the only criticisms I have is that it
requires you to have the deck on you at all times, and once the effect has been performed the deck
cannot be used for other tricks. It is really being picky but it is still an Awesome effect.
