Problem with 180s

6/25/2012 11:56 PM

I need help with 180s! I've been riding for almost 2 years now and I can't 180. I get the rotation but then when I try to fakie I just stop. Do you guys think it's cause I need a freecoaster?

This. I learned fakies way before 180s so it was just about getting the rotation.

Post a video, it will be easier for us to help you.

Go faster and start pedaling back when you land

1. Find quarter or tall kicker
2. Roll up
3. Roll down backwards
4. Repeat
5. ?????
6. Profit?

In all seriousness, follow the above to get those roll outs down first.
It helps if you:
* Don't bitch out when you feel you are tipping over
* Keep your lead foot in mind at all times
* Lean back a bit and slowly turn your bars with the direction of your spin

Try going a little faster and hop higher and also try to turn your bars to the right while the front wheel is up so that when you land, it is forcing you to spin around, hard to explain but that's how i learnt them. Its easier if you don't like to fakie because you dont have to pedal backwards as much. Oh and by the way try to learn in a larger area it looks to cramped and small where your riding, a empty carpark would help alot.

spooderman sez: dis iz trolin nd dis gui iz jokin


Q:What would you do if you saw someone trying to steal your bike?
A: Well, if I was with friends, I'd punch him in the stomach so he bends over and knee him right in the jaw, if he tries to strike back, I'd grab his arm, twist it, and trip at the same time so that he falls to the ground, and then ill get my friends to back me up and curb-stomp the shit outta him, then take my bike back, and walk away feeling like a boss...
.............but if I was alone, Id be a pussy and snatch the bike and ride away as fast as I could.

You just need to get them cleaner, hop higher into them dude your not putting enough effort into the hop itself. When im doing hop 3s im not thinking about carving or spinning so much as i am about hoping high and sucking up. So yea hop higher and learn how to fakie.

It took me a good bit to get fakies, and sometimes i still have problems with them its just one of those tricks i will always struggle with, but after enough tries i did finally get them. Just keep at it dude

If you go faster and get your backend around a little farther than in the video i think you will have it, over rotating mine a little always helped me roll out

I have the same problem. I get the rotation fine but then my fucking foot flys off.

lol go like 5-8 cranks depending on your gear ratio, then do a little "bitch crank" like a half crank and carve and hop more

Try to turn your bars a little before you land. It'll give you the momentum you need to get out fakie. It worked for me when I learned them.

Even though 180s are a basic trick they do take time. I honestly didn't land a 180 bunnyhop until 7 months of riding or something. Just keep practising because everyone who tries 180s all go through the same problems. What helped for me when I was learning them was picturing myself and aiming to do a 360 instead of a 180. You won't get the 3 but it'll help you rotate more.
