lol dudes are idiots. you do a wheely cuz its fun and its pretty kewl its also an easy trick for peeps who cant do it and dont knwo what it is...ur clueless.

OKAY. so to do a good wheely, you dont pull really hard on the handle bar and try to pedal. For your bike (i have the same one but not for competition its form 2 years ago) So you pedal at a slow speed and you shift it to like two gears heigher (i find it easier that way). So you just lean back adn give a quick pedal kick and keep leaning back. If you think you're falling press lightly on the back brake and it will bring you forward a little. To keep your balance form the side, stick out your knee to the side you are falling. Just a little because otherwise you'll fall teh otehr way. i'll get back to you later. Or jsut email me and i'll explain.

hope it helps

Oups lol k go at a speed u like and then slow down a bit, then pull and lean back... BMX have breaks right lol so ya. Use the back break to keep your balance form falling backward and pedal to stop from falling forward.
And to keep from falling sideways, stick out your knee to the side that needs to be balanced. Also the handle-bar is usleful. Use that a bit to keep your balance. you'll figure which way to turn it when you do it.

lol cant believe I thought BMX had gears. Its just a bit different with a BMX. You'll probably have to pull a bit more on the handle-bar.

Riding sit-down wheelies on a BMX bike is too hard. If you want to be cool, then learn how to manual. That is fun.
