Try putting the bike in a harder/one of the hardest gears to pedal. Once you've got that down and gained the confidence in your technique...you can try it in progressively lighter gears. Pretty soon...you'll be a no handed freak!

The trick is to lean back and put as little weight as possible on the front wheel.

Wheelie, manual, endo, canadian footjam, bunnyhop, wallride, fakie, 180, disaster, riding with no hands and falling. That's about it for bike tricks. . . Human tricks = cartwheel, make things, and other stuff.
