An Easy Way To Start Rear Wheel Hop / Side Hop


Recommended Posts

There are two good ways i found worked for me and my friends.

1.First find a small wall,curb or ledge about 2 and a half ft high.

Then put your front wheel on the wall ect. and rock slowly and get your balance right.

Next come off the ledge and move your legs up and down in a hoping motion.In the mean time

keep your back stright and your arms fairly stright.

And lightly be pulling up on ur bars to increase hight.

2.First roll about walking pace foward.Then endo up about a foot and a half then come

down and spring up onto your rear wheel.

This way is harder as you need more balance to get into your hops.

Once up on you rear wheel do the same as the first step by moving in a hop motion.

Use the same technique to side hop but you lean to the side you

are goin to as you hop up.

Also u can swing your back or front around in the air to make it nicer

or to get closer in to ther place your landing.

I don't get that and I can sidehop

I always preffered just getting on the back wheel then hopping sideways up the wall/ 2.5ft cerb...., then leaning forwards or backwards to go to front or back wheel :blink: .

Yeh, that.

You should never have to "endo" to get onto your back wheel, I can go from standing still up onto my back wheel and my back wheel has only moved foward about 1.5ft.

Straight arms when bouncing on the back wheel generally isn't the best position to have.

I never like to have my legs/arms straight because it doesn't seem as relaxed, it also makes it feel hard to control the bike.

When side-hopping you need to kick at the pedals, otherwise your going to end up going backwards too.

Ok, fair enough this is telling people a way to get onto the back wheel but maybe telling them a better position would be more helpfull?
