    Nose Wheelies

    I'm working on this trick, any tips? The only thing I've found to make it easier is a super tight front brake and risers. I guess bullhorns might be even easier.

    Last month in Vancouver I saw a guy on a road bike do a nose wheelie up to a red light. It looked seriously rad.

    an endo and a nose wheelie are not the same thing.

    For an endo, honk on the brake hard, or run into something. Riding out of it is key here, usually backwards.

    For a nose wheelie, watch this video backwards from about 2:41 to 2:31. To be fair, a brake would help get it started, though he doesn't have one

    Nose wheelies on road/tarck bikes probably aren't the best idea.

    It doesn't take too much effort to do an endo without using a brake on skinny tires if you're clipped in. Just a little bit of commitment and not too much speed.

    it's a matter of fulcrums, the fulcrum being your front hub. balance the weight of you and your bike on it.

    the concept is simple. the practice is harder.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    Yeap.

    I tried 'em for about an hour today and managed to do two that were about 8 squares in the sidewalk (maybe 15'-20'.) I ended up angling my risers forward, cholo style, that seemed to make it easier. I also have a 120 reach stem.

    meh, i suck at them, but they're fun to do. all you need is a little space and you've got a fun way to pass the time. it's true there are a lot ways it sucks that track bikes will never work for certain bmx moves, for example, but i hate hearing people say "ur st00pid, you can has bmx". i guess i just don't understand why some people having fun moves some other people to anger/annoyance/whatever.
