Added reply in a thread Chain/Cranks making weird noises when I down stroke. Help! 7/14/2020 3:02 AM

I actually solved the issue. I ended up lacing up new wheels and when I replaced them with my old ones the creaks disappeared. So I guess the sound was coming from my back wheel.

The thing is, it doesn't make that sound unless pedal hard enough. So if I flipped it upside down I couldn't do it. It also doesn't make any sound if Im against the wall and pressing down the cranks as hard as I can

Added reply in a thread Help with 180's! 8/25/2016 10:14 AM

Honestly I can't wait till I master the 180... I hate learning that trick so much... I've got the rotation down now but when I get into the fakie my weight seems to throw me to the right after I land, so my foot comes off the pedal

Added reply in a thread Help with 180's! 8/24/2016 2:18 AM

Oh and also when I land my 180, its feels like a lot of my weight is thrown to the direction that I spin, so when I land my foot comes of the pedal. Any help with that? And just for the record, I hardly carve when I 180.

I've been trying and trying for so long now, but everytime I land, I can't pedal back for the fakie. I end up landing backwards and because I'm not pedaling back my bike stops and I end up putting my foot down. I try leaning back but no luck. Its like ... more »

Looking at a new bmx frame to get, and I came across one which is "full chromoly". I'm gonna take a guess and say that full cromo is stronger? What I'm trying to find out is if full cromo is stronger than 4130 or not, and which would you prefer to ride ... more »

Added reply in a thread Help a noob out.. how to increase bunny hop height? 8/18/2016 9:57 AM

Basically, if you know physics you know that if you push a wall it will push back at you with the same value of force. So what you want to do before you bunny hop is push down your front end of the bike towards the ground pretty hard, and that will let ... more »

Added reply in a thread Flat 180 help 8/16/2016 5:07 AM

Carve slightly, it helps a lot. But yeah you should bring your knees up, its exactly the same as a bunny hop really

Added reply in a thread 180 help 8/16/2016 5:04 AM

I had that problem before. Basically what you could try is carving slightly less and when you carve, just before you hop you need to twist your head and shoulders back and spot your landing, that should help you hop in a straight line and hopefully make

So I've been trying to 180 for a very long time, and a few days back I started landing 180's, so in every 5 tries I'd land 2 maybe even 3. Now today when I got back on my bike to practise I get the same problems as I did before. Problem number one: Sometimes
