I haven't been riding that long. Trying to get used to how my bike feels as far as no hands go. I can ride on one side of the pegs, back, and front no handed. Just something I do when I am bored. Anyway its fuckin sick to see someone hop up on their bars and ideally that would be the goal ha but now I am working on putting my foot under the seat and the other on the stem. I can't let go for shit! I mean I can I am not afraid but I just can't get the balance down. Should I move my foot on top of the bars and learn that way first? Also the top of my stem isn't exactly flat. Its a front load stem. Would a top load or maybe even some 4 PC bars help me out or do I just shut up and keep practicing with what I have. My foot just feels kinda shaky on the stem. Any advise? I realize its kinda gay just trying new things.

surfing! I used to do that a lot.... I can only get a few feet though, you just kinda practice and take your hands off higher and higher each time

top seat, easiest to bail if shit goes bad.

top stem easier to keep balance once you let go!

top seat, top stem = surfing at his finest.
