08-20-04, 08:14 AM
o i forgot about bunnyhop and pogo
08-20-04, 01:46 PM
i can pogo somewhat, manual pretty decent, endo, rolling endo (nose wheelie) bunnyhop, go off ledges and..... crack my head on the sidewalk lol. Ive been riding for 2 or so months so im progressing.
08-20-04, 02:01 PM
ya i know wat it feels like to crack ur head on the sidewalk, major headache and its dizzy sleep
08-20-04, 02:47 PM
I can't do anything... I suck.
08-20-04, 03:37 PM
Well actually the head didnt hurt as bad as the snapped arm rofl
08-20-04, 03:40 PM
LOL at BMXTRIX, he can do everything lol
three words for you guys, I believe they'll speak for my experience: WEAR A HELMET!!!!! I can't stress that enough, you may feel goofy at first but you'll get over it, and trust me, no one that matters will think anything less of you. Another thing, wear shin pads, for the love of god. Mine look like a scene out of hamburger hill, now imagine if that had been my shins. One more thing, favorite trick to date is and always will be bunnyhop to manual (onto a ledge) manual the ledge, and bunnyhop off. Very basic, but very fun.

i dont wear a helmet......i know i should but i just dont feel the need
i personally dont think im at a high risk doing flatland then if i was doing vert
flatlanders don't need helmets as much, so I won't harp on that however I failed to mention, my shin guards are eaten up from my pedals and whatnot, but one look at my protec helmet reveals how many times its saved my butt!!!!
08-20-04, 10:31 PM
I agree people should wear helmets. I wont and never will I know it sounds stupid
08-21-04, 09:32 AM
ya i wear a helmet most of the time even when im ridin around town, it just hangs from my handlebars when im not doin trix
08-21-04, 08:46 PM
Trackstand (with several variations) into swivel into firehydrant into tailwhip into cricket into slider with barspin variation for landing. then into rockwalk and endo with hops. That's what i have down.
08-21-04, 08:54 PM
are u saying thats all in one combo!?!?!!? or u can do all of those tricks
08-21-04, 10:20 PM
I can do backflips, 540's, Manuals, whips, barspins, x-ups, working on a KOD, but that is for the big bike, stalls, wall rides, working on a flair. I can do all of those on my Specialized Fuse IV and on my Kona Stuff.
08-22-04, 12:57 PM
I'm saying i do that all as one rutine, linked together, up to the rockwalk. there i break the flow. not all as a combo. the cricket slider barspin is a combo, though.
08-22-04, 04:02 PM
i can...wheelie. seriously thats all i can do right now. im trying to endo, but i have an impulse to tap my left foot on the ground before i put my right foot on the wheel. next week when i get my pegs ill learn to fork glide. and to scuff.
08-22-04, 04:04 PM
oh yeah my mom makes me wear my helmet, no matter what im doing. i could go and get the mail, and id have to wear my helmet. i keep telling her its physically impossible to hit your head when your just biking slowly. id pretty much fall over first. but this next week ill get a new comfortable helmet to go with my pegs. i know how to accessorize.
08-23-04, 02:22 PM
you can actually get hurt pretty bad going slow......
my dad had a friend on a motorcycle going 5mph and fell off and hit his head on the concrete and died
its really possible

Um. I ride mostly street.. ya know.. the basics. I can bunny hop, but thats not really a trick. and ya know hit liedges and do different stuff, I liek fakie tricks. icepciks on cement are fun, just the basic street stuff.. havent hit any handrails yet, but i have hit low ones.
08-25-04, 07:56 PM
bunny hop is really a trick
08-25-04, 07:59 PM
endos, bunny hop, manual, wheelie(if u will), bar hop, frame stand (flatland), workin on switzerland squeakers or squeakers, pogos, bar spin, learning nose manuals, workin on funky chicken, riding back wards...as u can see i have a ways to go but ive only been workin on flatland for a little over 2 months now
08-25-04, 08:03 PM
im only a beginer but i can bunnyhop, pogo, endo, wheelie, tailwhip, x up, 180
08-25-04, 08:44 PM
o ya i forgot about barspins, i cant believe i forgot that one, i wish i would have thought more before postin this thread
08-26-04, 02:00 PM
i forgot x-up and "rolling lung spin"
08-26-04, 07:29 PM
rolling lung spin, can say i heard of tha one?
08-26-04, 08:28 PM
i dont know the real name.........its on a game lol
its where u manual on your rear pegs and turn the bars half way around and roll like that ( all with 1 hand )
08-26-04, 11:29 PM
The name is a coasting or rolling lawn mower. If you are going in circles, it's a spinning lawn mower. If you are going straight and both feet are directly in line behind the bike then it's a one-handed x-up dork wheelie... or peg wheelie. Though, dork wheelie is the correct term.
08-27-04, 04:48 PM
ill have to figure out how to do that one, is it an u intermediate, expert or pro trick?
08-27-04, 05:32 PM
By itself? Intermediate really. It is the same as the ride into a time machine as shown on bmxtrix.com
08-27-04, 07:47 PM
i think on ur website underneith of all the trix there should be beginner, intermediate, expert and pro things to clik on so someone can clik on them and all of the beginner, intermediate etc trix will show up. just an idea for somethin kinda cool
08-28-04, 10:48 AM
I just race so the biggest trick i can do is a 360.
08-28-04, 11:03 AM
A 360 can can, back flip, super man, ect....

bunny hop is really a trick
I don't see it as one, it's something you do to do a trick.. like you lift up(bunny hop)
at the top of a ramp, but jumping a ramp isn't a trick...
08-31-04, 09:20 AM
ya right not im learnin how to do a cyclone or somethin like that, my friend can already pull it off but im workin on it
