bmx bandits - old movie - tricks with mountain bike?

Hi,

I saw the movie again last night. Classic

ANyway, I love how they do the 360 spins on their front wheel, then back then front again.

Can this be done on a mountain bike?

How can I learn?

*complete novice so be kind!

It can easily be done on a mountian bike if you dont have a tripple clamp.

Even if you do, it's still easy.

Yeah, I can do that on my mt bike.. just roll up and make a small arc, I turn left a little then right. When I get the turn going, I endo and using the momentum of the arc bring the rear around. I get about 180, then landing, continue the momentum onto the rear wheel and keep spinning through. I remember the pics of the rock walk posted above, and looking at it now, that guy has bad form.

That is sweet, I am going to practice that. The rigid fork would help, so I might use my wife's bike.

He linked you a video*. Christ. And it's a 180+ degree rotation on the front wheel.

*A rather unimpressive one, in my opinion. Seriously, the guy is wearing a full-face helmet and has to pedal to get out of it. Weak sauce.
