I've finally gotten to the point where I can track stand at almost any stoplight that isn't facing downhill on the first try for up to 3 minutes at the longest. I rarely unclip now unless I am sure the light will be a long one.
I decided to go out and work on seated and switched track stands and I have to say switched is the harder of the two for me.
My left foot is my chocolate (front) foot and so I always turn my front wheel to the left.
I don't even get the chance to roll back when I try to stand with the right foot forwards! I just slowly fall to the left till I put my foot down.
I am guessing that's because I haven't built the muscle memory to take the pressure off my right foot yet. Its worse than when I first started to learn to track stand my natural way! hah
Meanwhile the seated seems natural, it might only take a week until it feels comfortable.
I tried to do the seated with one foot on the front wheel too just for fun, but that is wayyyyy out of my league for now. after i get the other two down maybe it will be a quick learned trick or maybe not. No way to tell until I get there.
This would all probably be easier on a fixie but I can't find a frame to build on right now.
So how about you guys? Which one took you the longest and most effort to learn?
