This is driving me insane. I love Bmx, and I ride almost everyday. On my journey to become a great rider, one obstacle is in the way- the fakie. Although an elementary trick, I can't manage it. I have been practicing by going up against a wall and pushing back on my driveway every day, over an hour a day for a week. My progression in skill is almost still the same. I am not getting that much better at it. My foot always slips of the pedal. And it's not my shoes or pedal, they are fine. It's just my impulse to bail that I can't get over. What am I doing wrong?

I remember fakies took me a few months to learn. Just give it time. And dont worry about doing super long fakies, just get down the basics of getting out of the fakie and learn how to do it out of 180s, footjams, etc. Eventually youll learn them and be able to do them for long distances.

For years, I would only fakie a few foot or so before id pull out. One day I did a 180 and it just kinda hit me out of nowhere, and I fakied half a block. Ever since then ive been able to fakie fair distances. Dont know how or why. It just happened. Lol

i always had a problem with fakies, i learnt how to land perfects 540 cabs and i still couldn't fakie for long distances (just one back pedal). i learnt how to fakie longer this summer, you just have to do a straight disaster in a quarter pipe, then do a little hop and as you are going faster in the fakie you will have to control it and make it longer

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

Testimony and apologies





I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

What would Jesus say: I didn't die for you to live like this!
