    Best type of bike/setup for wheelies?

    I've noticed that some bikes are much easier to ride a wheelie on than others. On my specialized Hardrock it is an effort to stay balanced where as other bikes I have ridden are much easier and I feel like I can ride a wheelie for a mile.

    Is it in the geometry, handlebars, gearing?

    it is your wheelie kung fu that needs help.

    I have a friend who can ride a wheelie on any bike for hours. it is not the bike

    when he wheelied my brompton for 10 miles I was convinced. he usually rides a
    6 inch big hit bike
    I like fat bikes
    and I cannot lie.
