..and I cant get them sad
I hop, throw them but then they only turn 180 degrees and the bike falls. no matter how hard I throw them.
I tried pinching the seat,cranks and it doesnt do much for me.
I learned how to throw them without hopping and I nearly had them on my indoor bike.

Any tips?

Oh, and I've got 1peg on my front wheel that weights like 350grams, would that matter?

Should I just keep trying them until I get them?
I always get hit somewhere after I try one lol

peg could throw the spin off. stem and fork offset make a lil difference too. If you can do them in manuals, do flyout or hops with your normally front foot on the rear peg and throw them that way for a while. your feet wont push the bike down an its easy to keep the front end close to you that way without smacking yourself.


In midschool bike rides you.

Here's how I learned opposite bars, and I go into how to keep your body in the right place and how to keep your feet in the right spot to hang onto the bike in the air.
