of course you can teach manuals. its the easiest thing ever. to amnual for a REALLY long time, just step on the frame with your front foot and put your back foot right over the back tyre. this makes it really easy to balance and its also the best looking trick in BMX :wink:

^^I hope you're kidding :)

Manuals CAN be taught, it just requires a little more hands-on approach than you're gonna get at this forum. Go get a friend who does them well to show you, or you could always pay an exhorbitant amount of money and go to Woodward and have K-Rob teach you. Maybe you'll even learn to pull a backflip on the resi while you're there. :wink:

you can't teach someone any trick by just typing it...of course it has to be hands on.

one thing i see every noob at manueling doing is they dont stick thier butt out, thats a must when learning manuels, and it takes a very very very long time to learn to do them, and u can forget to do them really easily, like if u stop riding for like more then 2 weeks, u have to start from scratch again, god i hate manuels

u know what pisses me off, when ur in school library/complab, and some kid next to u is constantly thumping the god damn mouse and pounding the desk and kicking the bottom of the desk hella loud, and its like stfu, but then he starts doing it again like 2 min later

another awesome trick is manualling while sitting on the cross-bar of your handlebars. its such a pretty trick. i wonder why they dont do them in the macneil video?

ok this is how i do manuals.... go go fast as i can, pull back, keep your ass far back, then if your front end starts to sink down, then lean back even more.... and if youre back and is going to go back then stop leaning back so much and try to pump it.... using these strats im able to manual pretty far

well ever since ive read this tips ive proceded in many different ways... and well i have found that for me... its not necassarily the form or even the tech. its the balance... im now seeking the perfect form of balance... and i havnt found enough... this is why i cant do much flatland tricks because i have no balance...(this is also why i find my self on the floor mornings after a long party) so can someone now help me on the balance portion of the whole thing....

no certainly not, even though I neither got that point yet, it is just practise!
