- pedal kicks/front wheel lift/manual
Pedal Kick: Roll up to the drop slowly; position your cranks so that your strongest/most natural foot is a bit forward of the 12 O’clock position; at the same time as pulling back on the bars, put in a forceful pedal stroke. Aim to land both wheels at the same time, or at least the rear one slightly first. Absorb impact with legs.
At least that’s how I do it.Posted 6 years agothebunkMember
It’s all about weight distribution. I was practising at the weekend by deliberately keeping my arms slightly bent and very “loose” on the bars, so that I wasn’t tempted to pull up – it worked so well that I chickened out after a few goes, was getting scared of falling off the back… 😳Posted 6 years agoTessMember
What is the magic formula for managing these skills apart from practise? I can see such skills would transform my biking capability but no matter the abilit allude me.I was out on Ilkely moor yesterday practising but to little avail – anything over a foot defeated me utterly. Useful advice please.Posted 6 years ago
