firstly sort your bunnyhops out, they are by far the most important thing you need to learn in BMXing. Then get the other basics down, like wheelies to get the feel of getting your front end up, which you then make into manuels (without pedalling in a wheelie). After that, maybe try some little dirt-jumps, and go down to your local skatepark and practise dropping in - off your pegs first time when you get some, then just rolling in ..... which you can make a hop in when you've sorted your bunny-hops!

Good luck

barspins eh..

can you do a barspin without pegs?
Also, i did get pegs, which i should put where do you think (i only have 2) I was thinking both on the back. But (there is always a but), they go on weird and i cant figure out how they work. They dont just screw, you have to put them on, and then deep inside them you have to screw the nut back on (if anyone gets what im saying).

If the dotted like in the thing sticking out of the bike, and the ____ being the peg, then the arrows point to the very back, where the nut must screw, how do i do this?

Sure...we all get it. You have to take the nut off of the back wheel axle, slide the peg over it, and then use a 3/4" socket with an EXTENSION to reach into the peg and retighten the bolt.

trouble with barspin

man, can you do a barspin without going off of a jump or anything? I was just out there and i tried it out, and i spun the bar as fast as possible and i whiped out. Also, do you have to lift the front wheel off before, because if your supposed to bring one hand across to other handle palm up, how do you pull off the front wheel?

do a little manual (good enough to spin your bars) and then just spin it.. or try half barspins

Im Back From Practise

Alright so i need some more tips.
I've made progress.
I can now easily lift the front wheel (any everything except back wheel) over a foot off the ground each time, and im starting to get the hang of endos, though they take me a while, and i cant hold an endo at all yet.
I wanna head out asap for more practise (its only 9, still early in the night) and so i need some pointers...
How would i go about getting my back wheel off the ground to complete my bunny hop. I remembered saying something about pointing your toes, and putting your weight somewhere but i didnt understand. Please some pointers.
On the endo, im not to worried about it, it'll just take time.

Peace
