    wheelie ratio

    right now i'm running 48:16 and can't get the thing to rise.
    I heard lower ratio=easier wheelies

    what size cog do you wheelie riders generally use?

    you're around 80inches, thats a lil high.

    for wheelies, im assuming people have their gear inches below 70. but dont ask me i have never done one!
    i'll coast when i'm dead

    technique is more important - lean back, torque it up, 12-6 combo. push your rear wheel forward.

    i've been practicing and am no where near padawan status yet
