    Fire hydrant

    I can do the first half of a fire hydrant but i always fall right before the frame swings around to me. I tried bmxtrix.com but that didn't help to much because it says to use breaks. Right now i dont have any breaks. Can anyone help me out with the trick?

    Fire hydrants are super tricky to do brakeless...you could stop the front tire with your free foot as it comes around, other than that you need at least Jedi Knight status with your rolling tricks to pull it off.

    Edit: instead of finishing the trick (since you're doing it brakeless), think about linking it into another trick that's easier to get out of without brakes. Try slowing the frame down and bringing it up into an elbow glide, for example. Or just see how long and far you can carve that front wheel around, maybe throw it into some McCircles, which puts you in a much better position to stop the rolling and get back on the bike. Whip it up into a steamroller. Do *something* with it, linking tricks and doing it creatively is what flatland is all about.
