i was trying manuals yesterday, and i couldn't get the "humping" part down. any tips?

i know i know: PRACTICE

but any tips/tricks to manual? like i was screwing w/ them yesterday, and i was bitch pedaling (barely pedaling) to keep it going but isn't that a wheelie

and any tips on tuck no-handers? i can get 1 hand but i'm scared/body won't let me, release the other hand

at first wat i did was find a steep driveway and manual really slow leaning wayyyyy off the back of the bike and find ur balance point. then start going faster and faster until u get them.

DO NOT EVEN START TO THINK ABOUT PEDALING TO KEEP IT UP IF U R JUST STARTING OUT

lean over your back tire and bend your knees to drop the front end and straighten them to keep it up

the chainstays make a big difference in feel but in the end all the difference is is that u have to keep ur front end higher or ur ass farther back
