Name: bicycle made for five
Price: £12.99
Difficulty:2
Examinable:no
Time to learn: if the basic moves are allready known ten minutes
Effect: Mind blowing trick using the five jokers. they are counted and one is turned face down on the table. One by one the jokers in your hands are made to to turn upsidedown by counting them from one hand to the other. By now both sides of the four jokers have been seen you then proceed to turn them face up only to find that the jokers have dissappeared from their bikes ( any one who uses bicycle decks will have seen their liitle bikes) you then turn over the card on the table for the great ending of seeing all five joker
doing acrobatics on one bike. ( ending can be addapted to be a card with the five jokers all having a pint tailor to the audience)
Comments:
This is a great trick which invloves a great sleight designed by elmsley wich everyone should learn any way. The trick is not examinable but u can safely put the empty cards and the sucker card on the table at the end because they will be so astounded they won't remember to examine the cards. Well worth the price
Over all rating 9/10

I completly agree. I have done this one many times and always got an incredible reaction, although unfortunately I haven't practiced magic for 3 years now.

My cards are so worn out I need to buy a new one!

The instructions provided are good enough for a start, but to really make the trick work you have to add a few manipulations (not too hard) to make it even more convincing. I don't have it with me, but I will try and remember to post the extra few moves that don't come with the instructions (simple spreads, ...).

I've had such incredible reactions from magicians and non-magicians alike, I would actually put this one to 9.5/10 at least.

I have this.
Great reactions!
IMHO, far better then NFW.
Some simple counts MUST be mastered to give it justice.
