There's been a few occasions that when tryin to learn new trix or trying stuff i already know how to do I've accidentally landed or nearly landed a completely different trick, It's fucking awesome.

For example, the other day I was doin a 5tap and at the 360 point was goin for the last 180 part of the rotation which kinda feels like a manual 180 but my feet came off and the bike got away from me but I was still holding the bars and I was in the air and I whipped the bike around and landed with both feet over each side off my bike and if I'd landed on the pedals it would have been a 3 tap to tailwhip, now I'm working on this trick and reakon ill have it no time.

Another time back when I was learning manual 180 I accidentally started pedalling backwards when I landed and it turned into a backwards manual and have been able to do backwards manuals ever since then.

I fucking love it when this kinda thing happens its like you get given a trick for free with out having to pay for it.

This happen to anyone else?

Tried doing a hop whip on a pyramid and accidently did a nac nac. Now I got them pretty damn dialed.

My friend had the same thing as you. Tried learning 3s on my bike (shorter cs techy bike) compared to his long trail bike, he now has hop whips dialed, but only on my bike. tongue

I've been trying to turbine mega spins (which is MAD hard without a freecoaster right now!) I got round twice! I know its not really a turbined mega spin but its certainly the closest I've ever got & all i was doing was a peg wheelie & tried to turn a little corner in my garden & ended up spinning completely around haha. Once the Flatland bike is built up i will have to try really hard to re-create it haha.

Fair play mate, also bravo to you for having the patience to ride flatland, I got mad respect for flatlanders but its neva appealed to me to actually try it, I guess maybe when I'm too old to ride street ne more I might give it a go, its weird tho cuz like I said I got loadsa respect for that style but I don't even like watching it either I am addicted to street edits tho so nuttin else gets a look in, apart from maybe a good concrete bowl edit.

Nice1 bro btw thanx for that, you know what I mean.

Well I'm 26 this year i have ridden Flatland on & off for about 8 years. I have been given strict instructions by the consultant at the hospital Street is a big no/no. I must admit I'm pretty heart broken about it but it just gives me an excuse to ride Flatland again & put everything into it. I'm sorting out a new Flatland ride right now & hope to have it built by my 26th in October, i know a place i can go ride covered up & almost warm lol. Hopefully there will be a few Indoor Flat Jams in the Winter time & i will head out to those! Also No problem mate, anytime!

Was just doing a 360 out of the bowl like i always do and got the 540 spin, now all i need is the rollout.
The very first day i put pegs on i was trying double peg grinds and ended up first learning smiths and right after i tried to double peg again and did a feeble.

The thing is you get a lot of momentum from pedaling backwards so that should explain your "weird" case.

This could mean 4 things.

You tried the trick 'Nothing', and landed one.
You tried the trick 'Nothing' and ended up not taking any hands or feet off.
You weren't doing anything, and you didn't learn anything.
And the least likely, you weren't doing anything, but your hands and feet accidentally came off the Bike and you landed with them back on.
