Even as a kid with a reasonable BMX back in the 80's (yes the 80's!) the most I could keep my front wheel up for was about one crank rotation.
Later on, getting my first MTB, wheelies did not improve, if anything it got worse, I would find mid wheelie, I would lean off to one side, stopping the wheelie only a few feet from where I started!
No matter what type of bike, HT, SS, FS, I have even tried on a road bike and CX! That front wheel will not stay up for me.
OK, I can just about clear trail debris logs, curbs, or rocks, but that's about it!
So with my 44th birthday looming and being a keen cyclist for over 3/4 of my life, I would love to be able to tick this off!
P.S. Please tell me at my age, I am not the only one who is a complete failure to master this holy grail.
