Tips for fakie manuals

4 posts in this topic

Hi wizards im stuck at around 1 - 1,5 backwards crankturns in my fakie manuals..seems to lose all speed and balance there...i try to apply pressure on the drivetrain all there way around, is that how you guys do it or do you pedal faster so there is no braking? Any pointers are appresiated thanks in advance

I would say treat it as much like a wheelie as possible, same body position sitting back with arms straight. I got stuck at the half crank point for ages but I got it over it more by imaging making circles with my pedalling whereas before it felt very much 'right foot down, left foot up'.
