today

I took off all the stickers that came on my bike, took off the gyro and the brakes and cleaned everything. I can hop a lot higher. I love riding brake less everyone was right its much smoother. And i have my foot for emergency stops. still cant figure out what that clicking was though. I'm gonna go ride in town some more. And i have a question about fakies. When you guys do them do you pedal backwards faster than you need to or just as fast as they go back if that makes sense.

I always backpedal as fast as they are going. If it gets going too fast, I just slow my rotation.

I back pedal just fast enough. And when i want to slow down, i pedal slower. So pretty much the same as midschool.

It's easier to learn pedaling faster, then you learn to control the speed

You just have to try to stay centered over the bike. Keep practicing. I still have to get my fakies bck.
