so I ride right foot forward and grind on my right. When you do these it is the exact same thing as a feeble but you push your pedal down when you get on the ledge. I find it alot easier if the ledge comes to an end so you dont have to try and hop off which can be pretty tough. If you have a legde down a bank or something that is anlged down, I would try on that first

goofy footed means that you ride left foot forward and spin to the left or if you ride right foot forward and spin to the right.



back on subject:
when i did pedal stall and pedal grinds (im goofy footed and i rode pegless for like a month) i used my back pedal and the chain guard. and yes, it is possible!

^you pull up the bike till the back tire touchs your ass, so you get more altitude, this is called tucking.

Hmm, so goofy is left foot forward, and spinning to the left?

I Ride right foot forwards, and spin to the left - BUT I can't grind on my right, it just feels normal to do it on my left?

This is why i've been putting off learning double peg on the coping!

Yes, i often land in a pedal grind when my back peg doesn't quite catch in a feeble!

I do pedal grinds, normal footed, with my back pedal (left) on my non grind side. They arent too hard, but keep your front tire towards the edge of the ledge, and try to keep your body over your front tire. if you got brakes, grabbing them helps. my friend can do them on skatepark ledges with coping with his front pedal and no brakes (hes pegless anyways) he just pushes down a bit, and does them really nice.

What is a feeble? I ride with my left foot forward, spin to the right, and grind on my left. Does that mean I am goofy? And what is fakie in BMX?

feeble grind is the front tire on the ledge and the back peg grinding.
a pedal feeble is the front tire on the ledge and the pedal on the ledge.

you are not goofy footed, you are normal footed.

and fakie is riding backwards in bmx.

your left foot forward dude...


well ive seen people use their rear foot to do them because it acts like a peg. ive seen people do it with the front foot and it works the same. i find the rear foot slides nicer but obviously the front foot is easier becasue its your normal foot forward unless you switch grind sides..

Weird, I grind left foot foward on quaters( I ride left foot foward), but I use my back pedal to grind other stuff, like ledges....I find if I grind with my left foot foward on ledges, the back end drops alot..

just need to correct it and lean forward. I would hate to have two sides of my pedals worn down, it would suck

^^^you cant correct it enough to equal grinding with the rear foot. ive been watching alot of pedal shit lately. it feels really weird to change up the stance though. and it wouldnt wear both sides dude, your foot would still be on the side with pins. it would wear both sides of the cranks, but the pedals go around on the spindle.. you have those guards on your chainstays so you have nothing to worry about with the back end dropping...bastard haha..
