Man, it is killing me! I am struggling with these. Whats the frickn trick to them? Lean back, pull front off ground, use legs to transfer weight, feather brakes as needed. What am I missing here? I hate this stupid trick!!!

If I had a slight downhill grade, I could probably go forever with my freecoaster, maybe a mile. On a casette I could probably go until my legs fell off.

I hear you guys. I have time. I mean it is winter! I was out there today in 30 degrees humping the bike. Since there really isn't anything to ride in my neighborhood, manuals is about all I can do! So I have time to practice. It just sucks! I want it now!
