    I'll send Beerman and BMXTRIX right over. They'll run along side you holding onto your seat until you get used to riding without the training wheels. You need to make sure your bike is set up properly too, and understand how balance and gearing help you to maintain a wheelie. There may be some help at www.bmxtrix.com. If not, complain to the webmaster. Oh, practice is key.

    uh, no it wasn't. u sound like me when i 1st came up on this forum. man to be truly honest, u worry too much. don't wheelie, manual. all you need to know to get manuals down is that a manual is when u "glide" along on the back wheel (glide meaning no pedaling). you just practise. Expatriate is generally quite good in his replies. calm down & keep practising.

    After you've been here more than a few days, you'll begin to notice that we're generally helpful, but that we also like to give each other a hard time. I've also gotten the impression that some members can be a little sarcastic. Don't know where that came from. And saying I'll send Beerman and BMXTRIX right over is not being gay. Now if I said Queensrider was on his way over...

    Anyway, the point is that no one on here is going to be able to teach you how to wheelie. Unless someone can tell you to maintain x amount of acceleration, while holding your front wheel off the ground at an angle equal to y degrees, at the same balancing z (%) of your weight over your rear axle, it's best done with someone else in person, and lots of practice.

    Now get over the little joke before I open my big box of insults. Oh, good luck too.

    Lean back. Pull up. Balance. Repeat as necessary.

    No, they're old school. And we try not to use the word gay, unless we're describing homosexuals. Or perhaps Queensrider. It's original meaning was happy, remember? The Flintstones had a gay old time.

    By the way Snazz, it's nice to have another member with at least 1/2 a brain.

    Nah, I decided to try it for a while but it doesn't seem to be working out for me. I think I'll stick to concise, pretentious bullet points peppered with thinly veiled sarcasm instead.

    That out of the way, Queensrider is hella gay.

    I hope that wasn't a reference to my writing style. If my sarcasm is thinly veiled, I'll go ahead and kick it up a notch.

    I'll be the first to admit that young kids growing up with Nintendo, Playstations, and the internet can be pretty clueless about certain things. How do you explain bike riding over the internet? When we were young, we had to go out and practice and keep trying until we got it right. Sometimes we broke our bikes, sometimes we broke. Ask me to explain the advantage of ferrous over non-ferrous frame materials. Or the difference in tensile strength and densities between steel, titanium and aluminum. If my son asked me how to wheelie, I'd take him outside and we'd practice together. Oddly, my youngest (a girl) wants to get into BMX. But I think she just wants to meet boys. [smacks forehead]

    She is. Last night she decided I should give her my Fender Strat, so she can start a band. That's making the BMX thing look like a good idea.

    your an idiot, there are AT LEAST 5 other threads that have manual tips...

    but since your lazy:
    lean back and straighten out your legs,
    and arms
    keep one finger on your brake to "feather" if you start to flip,
    pump with your knees in a humping motion...(like you were humping your neighbors dog/cat, thats right we all know you do...) and practice, i find that if i stop doing them i lose them, so you have to keep at it...
