    Learning to ride

    Do you guys think it is possible to learn to ride flat on a older dirt bike with only back break and no pegs? I dont think it is but i want to start learning before i get my new bike. Thanks for all the help in advance.

    About the only things you can do without pegs is stuff like squeakers and riding back wards and stuff, check out bmxtrix.com, check what all you can or are willing to do.

    There's plenty you can do without pegs, even some challenging stuff. Get manuals, nose manuals, bunnyhops, 180/360s, footjam tailwhips, etc down, then do bunnyhop tailwhips and crankflips, and crankflip-barspins.

    I learned on an older bike 30 years ago
    The age of your bike has nothing to do with it .

    The age of your bike has nothing to do with it as long as it is still up to the task at hand .
