Fakie Wheelie proof?

there's been some discussion regarding whether or not that fakie wheelie was real or fake. Well, Juice posted this video from his trip to SF this summer, which shows someone (uncomfirmed if it's Joel Weston) learning the trick.

San Francisco footage from Pablo Gallardo on Vimeo.

I'd call this pretty strong evidence that it's not a fake

The Joel video is totally faked and just played in reverse... his arms would have bent/coiled while lifting the front wheel to exert momentum.
