Hang Fives

Are making me mad.
I can get into them but not stay for longer than like 5 feet, at best.

Should i raise my seat?

Anyone got any tips?

Don't be too frustrated, it takes a while to master those. For some reason, I can nose manual a lot better than I can hang five.

Practice. If it was easy, your momma would be doing them.

I tried them for a week, but having 1 or 2 pegs on my bike made it harder to manual so I took them off. I couldn't do them far at all either... nose manuals are easier to a point, but hang 5's are easier to keep balancing past like 10 feet
