    I think your garage is ... clean. Most of the people I know have dusty dirty garage as they only clean their work desk and tools and leave the rest to the non-existant cleaning girl. Who cleans the place?

    I'm envious of your garage as well.

    Oh, and congrats on landing the trick.

    i love how after the crash his mom comes out to see if he's ok. maybe she's asking if he wants some fresh lemonade.

    haha i know...oh moms.


    ok the trick to it. just learn your backwards circles then pick a pedal you want you use as your powerfoot/the one you pop it up with. i use my outside or right foot, but i know a lot of people use their inside foot. then when that foot is at about 4-3 o' clock (like a little below where you would stomp it for a wheelie) you stop the pedaling backwards and start pedaling forwards all while leaning back on your seat (pretend you're pushing your seat down and back onto your back tire) and throwing your outside arm off--i dont know why you do this, but it makes it way easier to balance and spin and get it up.

    good luck. its a fun trick. keep trying it took me FOREVER... and i still need to practice more

    Work on your balance and the ability to lean back and hold your "sweet spot" - It's also easier to do from a 1/4 circle. Just whip it hard. The trick to doing a 720 is to have your dominant foot back, not forward, then once you've gone around, your foot switches dominance and you can hit the second 360...

    Explaining how to do tricks by typing is a lot harder than trying it.

    Just work on your balance. You're not leaning back enough.
