    turn your head and torso, hop like your doing a 90* and keep turning your head and torso.

    Just go slow at first, that way if you dont make the spin, you wont eat it too bad...

    Also focus on the spin more than the height of it at first...

    I can't 180 all that well, but I think if you practice a lot you'll get it. For rollbacks, it's mostly practice too, try different things and see what works best. It's good if you can find a little bank to roll up and it gives you enough speed to roll back maybe 30 feet or so.

    Dirt jumping is too easy with a mtn bike.

    Minus the fact where they dont carry speed as easily, and cant do x-ups as easy.
    They also can case the crap out of jumps and not go over the bars.

    Why is it that the good (semi pro) street and park MTBers are like not even as good as people like beer man?

    Cause the bikes are bigger, and not as easy to do technical stuff on. But dirt jumping with a mountain bike is super easy, not really the tricks part, but flying full speed over 20 foot doubles and tabletops is almost effortless, and acctualy almost boring.

    Tolede Joe is a pretty awsome on an MTB, so sad to see him leave bmx for mtb.
