one of the first few threads i looked at in this forum said something about "backtricking." it is kind of self explanitory.(you lay on your back and try and do what you would if you were actually riding.) it has not been great weather around here so i gave this a try, and wow. it is just rediculas. and it is pretty hard to do, i only tried it for like five minutes and than said, ah forget it. i tried a simple x-up and the bike like fell over to the right. it isnt like actual riding at all.
Is that a method for practicing balance for your tircks? I remember reading in a ridebmx they suggested to use a bike frame, fork, and bars on a trampoline. I tried it and it really did help my balance in the air. They acalled it air awareness or the way you balance when you are in the air when you are doing your tricks.
