not your usual manual question
So I have a 26" dirt jumper bike. A black market riot. and I just picked up a 20" for commuting and whatnot, figured I'd try some tricks on it.
With the 26" I can pretty much manual as long as I want, control turning etc. but on the 20" I can't do anything. I literally loop out as soon as I pull the front up. THis back and forth motion, I feel like with some compensation, I can correct, but what really gets me is I veer off to one side as well. I can't keep a straight manual at all. On the odd chance I dont immediately loop out, I tip over to one side and there goes the manual. Why is that? wrong frame size or something? Im six feet tall on a 20.75 frame.
Also, when manualing on 20", where is your weight? on the 26" I throw all my weight as far back as possible. I know you'll loop out if you do that on the 20", but do you keep your weight high or stay really low?
