180
 
Ok so i can 180 bunny hop easy but what i cant do is keep riding after i do it. I have seen videos of people doing them and they dont have to pedal backwards after they turn around again. Is it because i have a 1 piece crank that it makes me pedal backwards? or am i just a moron. Thanks

It's because you don't know how to ride fakie, try on a slanted driveway or a small hill or something. The crank has nothing to do with it.

You pedal backwards because of your hub, if you don't want to do that invest in a freecoaster.

when you learn to fakie, try and choose one way to turn everytime (the the way that feels natural) and just keep practising. fakies are annoying to learn but it pays off when you started doing them smooth.

It does not.

Most stock bikes don't come with freecoasters. Except the DK Signal and a handful of other bikes. But that's because they are flatland bikes.

Just practice your fakies, no need for a freecoaster just yet.

So when i look at the specs of the disrupter what does it mean when it says "13T Odyssey freewheel"?

If you roll backwards, the cranks will also go backwards.
