    i have my first real trick almost dialed

    i'm really doing pretty good with my flatland barspins. i know they say its one of the easies tricks but i'm still happy. (i'm doing really good with 180 barspins) i'll probably practice a few more days before i try a 360 one.

    i find it hard to barspin once i have the bars backwards (after the 180 spin)

    Which one, in your opinion, is easier?
    If you can buy it at Wal-Mart, it sucks @$$!

    i don't have pegs yet. so i'm using the pedals. let me guess, standing on the pedals is easiest

    No not at all. Standing on the pegs requires alot less weight control and balance. When you stand on the pedals you really have to balance your weight at your knees when their pressed against the seat. If your doing it right you should be able to do no handed manuals soon.

    Believe it or not 90% of the current BMX community hasn't been on a vert ramp before.

    Tazz - You are doing awesome really. It will take you several years really before you are really comfortable on a vert ramp, and you WILL have to stick with it almost every day. I rode for a few months when I started riding on a 8 foot vert ramp and never really got the hang of more than about a foot. It's still more than most riders learn.

    One of the craziest things to see is dirt riders who are really comfortable with box jumps and can do big 360's and no handers and stuff... but they don't have any control on a vert ramp or any other type of ramp really. It's interesting to watch.

    Thanks BMXTRIX , i dont get that much time to ride, me being in england, its always crappy weather + i only get the chance to go to a indoor park every friday night for about 5 hours. when we have a break from education i travel on up to a place where the bmx population is realy high. i ride all day every day up there with my mates and i have a realy good time for about a month. p.s 6 month is only the rough times i have rode. because where i live i know 1 person that rides a bmx and hes a real lagg and i get easliy bored, but i do get out on my own to ride street sometimes.
    To hell we ride...

    You're doing fine.. I've been riding for like 5 years and can't air out of vert at all.. never tired, but still. 5 hours a week at a skatepark is awesome.. I only get to a skatepark (FDR) not really a normal skatepark every once in a blue moon.. It's close, I just never get there. You're doing good. keep up the riding.

    okay. i'll make it real easy.

    1. get a life
    2. locate bike
    3. mount bike
    4. put hands on bars
    5. put feet on pedals
    5.1. silly bugger you should have read 6 or you wouldn't have bailed sideways!
    6. start pedalling (optional, you could tap your heels together 3 times and recite "there's no place like air, there's no place like air")
    7. locate ramp
    8. aim for ramp
    9. pedal like six sorts of hell are chasing you
    10. hit ramp with front tire, THEN back tire
    11. get air
    12. lean forward
    13. moveth noteth thou feeteth
    14 land

    lol.

    just ride at it quick.

    this is NOT meant to be insulting. it's cunningly disguised that way.

    that's right, just like bush.

    again, no insult meant
