I cant ride into one to save my life. Could I be too short to get my weight that far over the bars? I saw a post about whether the bike makes a difference when doing manuals and I'm wondering if the head tube angle makes a difference in nose manuals. ... more »

Lately my sessions have been shorter and shorter due to pain I'm getting in my arm by my wrist. The first night I felt it I didnt think anything of it cause I was riding pretty long that day and practicing hops. After 2-3 days of rest I get back on my ... more »

Added reply in a thread how to un do a chain knot?PLZ HELP 9/14/2012 7:18 PM

I still cant land one. My feet tend to slip off the pedals when I do anything. I've never landed a 180 hop either cause I get nervous changing directions like that no matter how many times I see it done. G-turns seem a bit easier and once in a while ... more »

I ride a 2011 Haro 100.1 frame and since I'm on such a tight budget, I'm stuck with a back wheel from an older Haro and a 39t crank gear. This 39/16 is getting really boring. I feel like I could hop more frequently and more explosive if I didnt have ... more »
