This release from Alakazam Magic UK comes with the necessary gaffed Bicycle Rider Back cards and an instructional DVD. The gaff is credited to Rob Bromley but its a modern upgrade to an old gimmick. It was described in Hoffman's Modern Magic (1876) as well as New Era Card Tricks (1897). This new version works effortless and automatically. The cards are well made.

On the DVD, Peter Nardi and Dave Loosley demonstrate three routine variations. The first is the most visual and magical. The second leaves you cleaner but you pay the price of... [Read More]
