Hi, I'm just starting freestyle bmx and the term "fakie" pops up often and I don't really have a clue what it is. However, I've seen enough riding now to have an idea what it is but I'm still not 100% sure.

So, fakie is when you pedal backwards? It's rolling backwards (rollback)? K, today I was practicing endos and I tried to, um, fakie after the back lands. I pedaled backwards but the I can't enough momentum from the endo to roll back. I dunno, i just wanted to mention this.

Anyone can explain the fakie to me? Any tips on doing them would be cool too, like if it's easier to fakie while sitting on seat or standing.
