Feeble Help

I've been trying to feeble this ledge and i keep landing my tire too far into the ledge, resulting in sliding out or not enough which results in a double peg grind, how can i solve this problem. Do i just look at the spot i want my front tire to land, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok the problem is you are hopping at too much of an angle to what you are trying to grind.
Try and get your bike as parallel as possible to the ledge (without touching it of course) and you should be fine.

Look down the line you want to grind as soon as you hop up.

just keep trying. also go faster . lol that might be bad advice but too many go to slow on feebles and end up grinding one foot. oh and stay close to the ledge before hoping up

if none of the things they say are working then try when jumping into the feeble to put your front tire on the ledge just a tad bit before your peg. that way your tire is on an all ready for your peg to assist in sliding that ledge like some pro haha

not cheating, gives you a feel for what you have to do, that way once you get used to the feeling you can dial it in and make it much smoother.
