MTB Tricks, and stuff.

Howzit Guys,

I would like to know fi there is any site or guide, that tells/shows you how to bunny hop probley, wheelies, endo's ect, i mean i can do all of them, but my bunny hop is lifting both wheel off the ground at the same time, i would like to learn how to do front, then back, then landing on both at the same time, also can do wheelies, but would like to do them longer while sitting down.

Oh and what psi should my tyres be if i'm doing this sort of stuff on the bike, they are at 40 psi atm, and i am 8 stone.. can make them harder?


Thanks!

The tricks are for bmxers but the hints work for mtb as well.

PSI is a personal thing. I like a low psi. For street more psi usually....as for 8 stones...are those big or little stones...are you bigger than a smurf or are we talking greek god here?

Np...big or little stones......

Sorry I find that weight measurment to be the funniest in the world. Such an odd system, and even funnier considering how much 1 stone represents.

Speaking of units, which one is it? Lbs/in^2 or atmospheres?
