    So I guess since you guys pulled all of these tricks off of a ramp, then jumping can't count as a first trick. Will any trick count queensrider?

    Well jumping off of a ramp is a definet skill you have to have, or else you'll screw yourself on the landing. (you may not even get that far if you don't know what you're doing) But yeah, I'd have to agree, it's more of a skill thing, not a trick.



    And hey queensrider, I'm guessing that that 'yea' was directed towards my question, so I'd have to say that the first trick I learned was wheelies. Then very very shortly after that endos, but they weren't very good ones. And my first air trick was an x-up. I'm not that great at wheelies, my farthest one I've ever done was around 35 feet. My freind can do 120 foot wheelies though, he's pretty good at them.

    i'm surprised you can already x-up. x-ups don't sound like much but im sure that 75% of the people on these forums can't do it. You should start trying x-up grinds

    Well, I would try them (x-up grinds), but I can't grind.....unfortunetly. BUT!! I will be shreding stuff up eventually, I know it! We still haven't had the time to attach that grind rail we made to my fun box, but when we do I'm definetly going to put my pegs on and try it out. And you're right, you wouldn't think that x-ups are that hard, but if you don't keep your balance in the air, and get it straight before you land, then you are definetly screwed. I think it is actually a pretty fun trick, you can link it to a lot of different stuff. Oh, BTW, I always ride with my right leg in the front and my left leg to the back, does anyone know which side would be the best side to grind on for me? I do almost ALL of my tricks the best to my left side, so I don't know if that would help narrow it down. I know in the end it's what I like, but I was just wondering which side would be a good one to start with, since I don't want to have to be running all four pegs because, huh, that is just plain to bulky.

    Mine was sitting on the handlebars facing backwards and having my sis on the seat facing me as I pedaled backwards . Front brakes and a dyslexic trigger finger introduced me to the opposite of a face plant : the "back plant" . To my highschool buddies amazement , I learned to do it on my 10 speed . Girls thought I was nuts , but at my 20th class reunion last year , a couple asked me if I still did "tricks" . I wonder what they meant....?

    My first trick was either a 180 to rollback or a manual(if they count). I was to afraid to go to the skatepark and try tricks when I started last year so I just bike in the street and learned to manual like 50 feet before I even tried to go on the ramps.

    It depends if your left handed or right handed. What is your dominent foot? Remeber just because your right handed...that dont meen that your right foot is your dominent on (or vise-versa). To find this out...fall forward and whatever foot you put out automaticaly to catch yourself is your dominent foot. Whatever one that is should be the side that your pegs go on. and for more balance when you grind...you should get skid plates on your pedals. I have them but i dont have pegs! I can do some neat tricks with just the skid plates but you will have a bit better balance with both pegs and skid plates.

    aren't you the kid with that online bike shop? if not, my fault.

    it just sounds hard to believe that an eleven year old kid does a tailwhip on a stepup, and doesn't even know what it is. and it even sounds hard to believe you did half of a whip and brought it back around. it is really hard to get a whip going, then stop, and come back.

    and by the way, your earlier statement contradicted itself

    Bike shop? No I dont have a shop. And I new the basis of a tail whip but I Have never seen one done. And it wasnt intentionaly done so I was trying my hardest to get back into a straight position. And I think it is hard to do a tail whip on a stepup because im a n00b...but in not ashamed because sooner or later I will get better.

    Thanks for the tips. I thought at first I was going to grind on my left side, but now since my dominent foot is my right foot I think I'll try to grind on the right side first. Again, thanks for the tips.

    don't listen to this kid, he knows less than you. just bunnyhop next to a curb and land your front tire on the curb to learn the motion of a feeble
