The Official how to do basic tricks on a mtn bike thread
I know someone is going to say "get a BMX!!". But I don't plan on doing tricks just for the sake of it. I'm hoping these "tricks" will build up my skillz and be useful on the trails.
The only "trick" I know is trackstanding. I can trackstand for over 5 minutes (yes, I timed myself yesterday).
Other tricks I would think will come useful:
You skillful riders, what other tricks/bike handling skills do you think is handy when it comes to riding on trails?
How do you do a bunny hop? I can't seem to get the rear off the ground. Maybe I should run some clips (have platform now) or SPDs?
How do you wheelie/manual without flipping over? I'm too scared to get it up that high.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
