Five bike-riding jokers are displayed, backs and fronts. One joker-the leader-is put aside, face-down. One by one, the remaining jokers turn over. When the faces of the cards are displayed, they are seem to bear only abandoned bicycles. Where are the missing jokers? They're found on the face of the leader card, where they've joined together in an acrobatic cycling demonstration!

Comes complete with full instructions and the necessary specially printed Bicycle cards, along with an extra gag card for a different finish.

I saw this effect (through the plastic bag that it comes in) at a convention and thought it was a clever idea... So I decided to pick it up.

Basically, the effect is that you show a bunch of jokers. Ever joker is removed from it's card and placed on the other to finally reveal four-five jokers on the same card. Below are the cons and pros...

Pros:

-Comes with two endings, which is nice and really helps to make it original.

-Clever idea... You won't see this anywhere else.

Cons:

-Stock: These cards, while LOOKING exactly like bicycles are made of plastic which makes them impossible to manipulate or do any of the moves you are supposed to to make this routine work!

-Instructions: The instructions that come with this effect might as well be in a different language. I have been doing magic for about 8 years and this is really THE hardest effect I have ever had to learn from a manuscript.

-Price: For 14 dollars, they could at LEAST add in ACTUAL bicycle cards.


I really, really don't recommend this effect; I would, if it was usable, but it isn't. Don't buy this.

HI,
I have three of these, and as a working pro always like to have a back up. I do continual close-up for up to three hours at a time. I found that the spectators LOVE this effect, and it really blows them away. I am constantly asked to repeat it when they come back brining others with them to see it. I mostly do sleight-of-hand, but do several "packet tricks" This is easy to do, easy and quick reset, and packs a punch. The routine leads you down the path in which the same effect happens four times, and then you hit them with the kicker. The Jokers are gone from the bikes and appear on one card. Great effect.

This would be great on a real bicycle cards. The routine is pretty nice. I like visual tricks to build like this one. Hopefully they will update to real card stock. You'll need to learn some intermediate card manipulation. Not for beginners.

A great packet trick.
Five jokers disappear off their bikes and end up together drinking beer at the pub.
Hilarious.
Magical.
The cards are plastic which means they last for ages and keep their shape.
As long as you can do an Elmsley count and a glide you are home and hosed.
One of the best packer tricks around. Just ask Doc Eason.
