    That was probably the best how-to I've listened too.

    I really should buy some Levi's apparel, to support a fantastic company support fantastic riders.

    jamie you're awesome. You don't know how happy i got when you said it doesn't matter how many time you can spin the bars or throw the bike around ........that an invert is a beautiful bicycle acroebatic trick. i totally agree and they do feel amazing. I invented an inverted nose dive three and a week later premium's posting add for josh harrington's "inverted nose dive three" it was just a really deep nose dive three. If that's what that trick is called then what do you call it when you're just as upside down as he is while your shoulder's eatin your front tire?
    i also found that a lot of people pump to the top of the air out on quarters then do it right before they're coming back in the whole time keeping there body inside the quarter. It makes the invert harder to do. If you do your pump and not stay inside the quarter the whole time but the second you get the floaty feeling you actually turn your body to go over the deck and throw your non lead foot down and behind your lead foot then throw your invert by pushing your arm on your lead foot side down toward the inside of the quarter followed directly with shrugging the rest of your body into it also if need be but this way allows now shrugging. When you do it like this it's very easy to slap them not just flow into them more with your body. If you get into a habbit of this make sure you keep your bars as close to your waist as possible because it allows your knees to be further away from your body making it so your feet don't blow of. So sorry i just love this trick and might not ever get to ride again so i'm giving away my secret to my most favorite trick ever hoping to see more of them and hopefully more on the side of people and not infront of them scrunched into it or in front of them all bowlegged tabbled like calling them inverts.
