    How do you set up your bike for no-footers

    I have tried like so many times to do no-footers, but my pedals always spin and then I crack up. PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO MAKE PEDALS STOP MOVING. I would be very thankful, my nuts especially.

    Foam pit if you're lucky like Scotty Cranmer. If not, the first place I ever tried them was going .0000001 MPH in GRASS just doing a bunny hop and trying half barpsins without pooping myself. Then I tried them on very SLIGHT banks. First just barspin to fakie, then 180 barspin, and hop barspins. That's where I am at now...

    TIghtne the compression bolts on your crank arms. If you do not have a 3 piece crank, tighten your 1 piece unsealed berrings enough so they don't spin as freely. Or you could tighten your chain.

    Your rear hub may be "ghosting". Roll your bike and pick it up, if the pedals keep going then you need to fix your rear hub.

    the best way to get people to ride with is get your mates into it rather them them playing x-box.

    Couldn't that also mean that your chain may be too tight?

    Thanks dude. I'm gonna try that. Heck if you crack up on grass who cares. I was wondering should I cut my bars or is that not really necessary. I have tested my bars can spin without hitting myself but it is just close I always think it will so I jump off the bike.

    You should just tighten your chain by pulling your wheel back... I wouldnt tighten our bolts.. if they are too tight you will put stress on your bearings..

    what kine jump should I build

    I have some land next door. Not much. It is pretty small and really uneven. I have one straight way though, with a hill at the beginning of it to get speed. What kind of ramps should I build. It isn't to long but not bad.

    I have a few questions

    I pop so many tires when I ride. Like fifty a day. I know to keep your tires rock hard but still I pop them. Does anybody know about some special super tough intertubes you can buy. That would be great.

    I pop, oh, one or two tubes a year. Stop being sketchy and learn to ride smooth(er).

    Make sure you take both legs off at the same time, and also push the pedals a tad-bit forward. You'll eventually get it. Well it works for me.

    theres no way you learned 180 bars on a bank before you learned hop barspins. the week i spent learning those was the worst week of my life

    Hello person who obviously did not read the rules. You must type as an adult, not as a five year old. If you know how to spell and use correct punctuation, please do so; it is much appreciated. Thank you.
