- Riding skinnies
weight forward through the bars/forks as i said.holds the bars stable and stops the steering reflex as you lean to balance not steer
Basically this gives you a bend in the elbow which absorbs any lean induced steering. Sitting back on the bike or with straight arms means any body movement results in steering action – probably the ‘drunk’ .
Look off the end of the feature too.. looking ahead – just like you should be when riding along on any trail.
Anywho, in addition to simply agreeing with the advice above… ride repeat, ride repeat.Posted 9 years ago
Once you begin to get confident, you’ll be manualling along them in no time ;).
Leek in Staffordshire. There’s not north shore up (down!) here (that I’m aware of) but to be honest until I can ride along a log without falling off I don’t see much point in trying to ride “proper” skinnies like in your vid. I think these tips are really going to work…Posted 9 years ago
Cheers for the offer. Believe me I’m at that stage where I do need to get out riding with someone better than me. I’m quite pleased with my fitness but do want some more “skillz”. I know I need to get out and practice practice practice but with 2 young kiddie-winkies I’m not blessed with free time.
