all a "Manual" is, is finding the exact area to the balance-spot.
When you manual, for like a good while you need to "pump" and what that is controlling the balance-point.

Pull up and keep your arms stiff. Balance with your legs. And pump to keep moving.


Start by practising 1 footed back peg manuals. Use the foot thats not on the peg to balance and keep your arms stiff. This can teach you some of the proper motions for a real manual.

is it good to pedal?? or u really mean a manual like no pedal and just balance
somethimes i can do really good manuals but to start i have 2 pedal so i can get some speed and get my front wheel up
but i can also do some no pedal wheelies just pulling and leaning far back with ass :D
and how about braking ? is it good to learn to softly squeeze the brakes during manuals ?

When learning it's ok to pedal to keep balanced but to perfect it try not to pedal and punp with your legs. A thrusting motion.

Regarding breaking. Don't worry i find it throws my balance off grabbing the lever. The key to manuals is what ever makes you feel comfortable. Everyone has different ways to balance.

Sorage: A manual isnt a manual if you pedal..thats a wheelie.
Manuals are "wheelieing" with just your balance, no pedaling.

Bu wheelies are good to practice your balance though.=)

Amen brother, i agree what a waste. But anyway, back to manuals, im tryin to nail them good and i find afetr about 4M then i slip out backwards, but when i try and stop this, then my front wheel hits the ground. I suppose i just gotta practice. :?

if you manual pedalling, thats a wheelie. pedalling to keep the front wheel up in a manual is called bitchcranking sometimes.
