    www.bmxtrix.com -> how-to -> fix your bike -> rear axle/freecoaster

    i agree i hate mongoose stuff. my neighbors has one of those crappy mongoose outerlimit/walmart bike. um the grips are hard as a rock, the tires suck, and the stem is so loose u can do a bar spin. that is u can spin the bars all the way around while keeping the tire pointed in one direction

    its fine for him though. he's only 7 and he usually just rides. sometimes i'll build crappy ramps with him and his brother (13, my age also) and we'll jump off them. i just know somepoint he'll probably bend his fork and probably bend his rims and bust the frame

    i'm not trying to be mean. i don't have the best bike either compared to other bikes ( i have a haro backtrail x1) but i feel 50 times safer on my bike than his bike

    well, i dont care if you cant grind now, you will eventually, so if you are going to in the future, buy grinding pegs now, so you'll have them then.

    doesent matter man.. and that isnt true. I was lucky enough when i started riding to not have a fourm to go to and hear about what everyone else was doing because I didnt have to realize how much i sucked, except when i went to fdr, but really dont be so hard on yourself.. it had to be about a year or so before i could even bunny hop on to a 1 foot ledge, mind you, thats a 2 inch bunny hop, but that first year of riding was almost my most fun ever. Get the grinding pegs, keep trying to grind and dont say you cant one more time or you never will. Just go for it man.

    is it considered stupid to wax up a ledge type thing that is just a little higher than peg height than "grind" it by rolling up to it, raising the front wheel so i can put the peg on the ledge, and keep my back wheel on the ground?

    i don't even know if thats considered grinding

    That's what we kindly refer to as a poser grind. Really.

    It's only cool if you manual into it from sixty or more feet away, and do a 180 to smoothie out of it. Not really.

    abolish pegs, thats wot i say.

    i dont run pegs but can still grind on me pedals, you have to do somethings opposite (e.g. feeble stalls to over on a spine) but that just improves your confidence and stability on your bike. I think beerman will clarify that one

    I never wax ledges, you relly dont need to for the most part.. It might give you a little bit longer of a grind.. but when you are starting out you are not going to be doing 40 foot grinds, so dont worry about it. That like wheel on the ledge thing your talking about is totally what i did before i learned to grind, I dont see anything wrong with it as long as you try to use it to actually learn to grind. When i started it was just me and my friend, we didnt really see pro riders or anything, we didnt even know much about street at all so we did alot of really stupid things early on, its no biggie, we had so much fun.

    yea rice, dont worry, u will learn how to really grind sooner or later. The first real grind i did was at a skatepark. Actually it was a feeble, but I was only able to do it bc i had a helmet on. It really gives u the confidence. And also it was the environment. But before really grinding, id suggest u practice your J or bunny hops.

    I wouldn't say that learning pedal grinds will improve either your confidence or stability; if you're sketchy with pegs, you're probably still going be sketchy without.

    mate, anything that helps you learn is good. i got the feeling of feebling by bunny hopping just off the ground, like seriously, 1 or 2 inches and landing with my front tire on a curb and my back tire on the ground where i was and doing that at speed. it must look terribly daft, but its fun. who cares wht people think? no matter how hard you try, there will always be people that don't like you. don't live by other people's ideals. but remember that's just my opinion.
