right now i'm running 48:16 and can't get the thing to rise.
I heard lower ratio=easier wheelies
what size cog do you wheelie riders generally use?

technique is more important - lean back, torque it up, 12-6 combo. push your rear wheel forward.
i've been practicing and am no where near padawan status yet
