new love for riding!!!!!!!!

wow.. lol thats all i can say..

after working at a bike shop you learn to love bikes again. i was just out doing some sodo trials stuff. (mimicing vedios i see) but just jumping over sticks lateral, and skipping around on the lines in our street. oh and testing how far i can lean back on a wheely before my bike desides to eject me. its all fun and dandy but the question is what should a beginner practice? tricks of the trade, stuff like that. i have my bike set up like a trials bike, and it works great for me. i just dont know what to practice.. anyone have any hints on beginner stuff?

1 - trackstanding
2 - pivoting front and rear wheels
3 - when you learn how to pivot learn how to lift rear wheel without using brakes
4 - bunny hop
5 - j-hop
6 - start practicing hopping UP onto objects
7 - wheelies
8 - with all of those the balance slowly comes for rear wheel moves which will be needed for trials
9 - hopping in place (trackstanding with hop)
10 - japslapping

Those are my top ten to learn. No particular order as some come faster than others to different people. For movies and techniques try here

i believe he means making a cirlce.. like move the back to the left and then front to the right there for pivoting over the seat by alternating picking up front a rear tires

Yep...While holding the brake move the rear wheel left and right. And also be able to move front wheel left and right WHILE staying upright and not pedalling.
