three words for you guys, I believe they'll speak for my experience: WEAR A HELMET!!!!! I can't stress that enough, you may feel goofy at first but you'll get over it, and trust me, no one that matters will think anything less of you. Another thing, wear shin pads, for the love of god. Mine look like a scene out of hamburger hill, now imagine if that had been my shins. One more thing, favorite trick to date is and always will be bunnyhop to manual (onto a ledge) manual the ledge, and bunnyhop off. Very basic, but very fun.

flatlanders don't need helmets as much, so I won't harp on that however I failed to mention, my shin guards are eaten up from my pedals and whatnot, but one look at my protec helmet reveals how many times its saved my butt!!!!

Trackstand (with several variations) into swivel into firehydrant into tailwhip into cricket into slider with barspin variation for landing. then into rockwalk and endo with hops. That's what i have down.

I can do backflips, 540's, Manuals, whips, barspins, x-ups, working on a KOD, but that is for the big bike, stalls, wall rides, working on a flair. I can do all of those on my Specialized Fuse IV and on my Kona Stuff.

I'm saying i do that all as one rutine, linked together, up to the rockwalk. there i break the flow. not all as a combo. the cricket slider barspin is a combo, though.

oh yeah my mom makes me wear my helmet, no matter what im doing. i could go and get the mail, and id have to wear my helmet. i keep telling her its physically impossible to hit your head when your just biking slowly. id pretty much fall over first. but this next week ill get a new comfortable helmet to go with my pegs. i know how to accessorize.
