    What a load of old tosh!!!!

    Do you really think the little rear tyre or feeble suspension would bear the weight of what must be a 1 ton van.
    Plus, the centre of gravity has to be behind the rear axle so it should be doing a very long wheelie.

    Bit late for 1st April.

    My Mandarin is a bit rusty but translating part of this site http://sd.people.com.cn/n/2015/0417/c358829-24541054.html says ...

    "Yesterday morning, the Modern Express reporter learned from Zhenjiang city traffic police brigade, this is true. Traffic police brigade official told reporters that they saw this scene was surprised by monitoring the time, because a van weighing about one ton, tricycle laden with such a monster on the road is very dangerous, can easily lead to road accidents."

    You can see the load areas front upper framework in the original picture.

    Thanks, appreciate the research but it still looks photoshopped to me..... However, in China almost anything can happen on those roads so happy to be corrected (y)

    Why didn't the idiot just remove the wheel and take that for repair ?

    Definitely photoshopped Chinese police propaganda.

    No van reflection on the wet road to the left of pic and no shadow below/behind the van yet the rider and bike have shadows.
    Riders shadow is superimposed on the van, bike has genuine shadow on road.

    I think he is cheating using an engine. He should be using pedals and leg power, like this guy.

    Bit extreme when he only needed a wheel removed.

    Maybe it had a bigger issue than a puncture ...
