ok first off sorry i forgot to include this in my other post

(this only applies for bmx's with stunt pegs)
is there a trick that is standing on the front/back stunt pegs and riding along and if so what is it called ?
i saw a kid doing it the other day and it looked pretty good

just hoping on the pegs and cruising down the road ? I dunno man


If you wanna practice a basic trick, bend your knees slightly, lean back over your frame and pull the front end up, trying to keep balance. Wala! A manual.

i dont' think that is a trick in itself...but yea you can turn that into a lot of different things and linkage stuff...yea try pulling up and balancing for a bit and then you can turn the bars while manualing and all sorta fun stuff. 8)

ok dont tell me 2 search on this 1 but when ever i try to pull up the front end for a manual it just goes like less than a foot off the ground :(

dunno how to get it higher, its probobly just practise but it would be good to have some advice to

Manual where it feels good, not what looks good. If you have to pick your nose to manual well, go for it.

i had the same problem as u learning to manual, instead of just pulling up the bars, lean way over the back end of the bike, push out with ur legs hard while pulling up slightly, if u flip over, jump off and dont push as hard next time, manualing takes a long time to learn but if u stick with it ull have it in no time

When I started BMXing and couldn't bunnyhop / manual, i was pretty embarrased to try them in public. I think it's kinda expected of you (even though most of the public doesn't understand it's a learning process) to be able to do those things. So when I practice, it was either inside (my rec room is where I learned to bunnyhop) or just on your street. Both are kinda private (unless your on a highway / main road) and after a few days you'll get it :)

Best idea to practice manualling is to do it EVERYWHERE. Continually try to manual when your going somewhere. After a while and you get your balance you'll start doing 10-20 foot manuals... then you'll still practice and get further and longer.

shaddap cornholio butthole. If you would take soem time to look out yourself you would see I don't open new topics for every question. And if it is in the line of the topic I just ask it.

edit: I see it is even in this topic...so ****, I read wrong, shit happens...
