Instructables

What tricks would people like to learn?

Well after a request for an 'ible on basic bike tricks as a follow up to this cycling 'ible I'm wondering what tricks people would like to know about so far the list is:

Pulling a wheelie
Stoppies/endos (stopping or moving with the back wheel in the air)
Bunnyhopping
Sliding in a reasonable manner (as in tailslides)

I'd like any other suggestions, the 'ible will include all requested tricks that I can do, heck got any for me to learn? Just throw them at me.

If I can I'll add stalls and stuff to this but considering where I live finding a good place to do so is hard (it's still a building site for the most part...)

EDIT: The instructable is now up

what about some massive moto- style whips off jumps at the park? tabletops would be nice too, and not the actual jump, rather, the trick. oh yeah, and manualing forever'd be pretty awesome just as well. as for what I know, I've completely mastered trackstanding, I can bust out a wheelie from time to time, bunnyhopping isn't as high as I'd like though I can do it, x-ups are a bit sloppy, as are my flatland tailwhips on bmx. and if you haven't guessed, I ride absolutely everything.

I was thinking about another 'ible soon, I missed otu a bunch of stuff like high speed manoeuvres, hell missed no hands, need to continue to proper jumps, and the stuff around them...
No hands would be cool. Friends are allways asking me how to ride no hands, and all I can tell them is to practice heaps. Some more instructions would be helpful.

I get round to no hands, it's a bit difficult to get pictures for... I do fear dropping my camera on the bike, however I'll get around to it... Maybe do a little video while I'm on the bike...

I know how to ride a bike through a ditch!
killerjackalope (author)  coolz5 years ago
I know how to do that... I did one time go through the wall of an anti flood ditch in the forest, they make these big wall-mounds of dirt to help lower flooding in one of the forests, I jumped off one and hit the other at a bad angle, straight through it....
but did you do it without flying through the air
killerjackalope (author)  coolz5 years ago
I overshot the jump from a lump beforehand, that meant I landed in the ditch wall and went through... It's not hard to go through a normal ditch without jumping though...

YAY!!! I just got a new bike. Just thought that I should throw that out there. P.S. It's AMAZING.
killerjackalope (author)  hippojoe5 years ago
Cool the 'ible is up and all, basic bike tricks and skills.
I know
killerjackalope (author)  hippojoe5 years ago
Oh right, I thought you'd just missed it at first, nice one getting a new bike...
Thanks :(but it's gone now my mom went crazy and took it back.
killerjackalope (author)  hippojoe5 years ago
Ah well there's always hope... kepp angling, parents eventually get tired of hearing I want a bike...
That's not meant to be spam by the way.

My friend does this one where he does a stoppie then kicks up and back like a reverse bunnyhop its really cool but I dont understand how he gets it up.
you dont understand how he gets it up, lmao,
Jeez. I knew that someone would say that sooner or later.
i couldn't help it, lmao
killerjackalope (author)  hippojoe5 years ago
I don't know what you mean, like he does a stoppie then jumps in the air? Or doe he come back down and jump up like a bunnyhop?
He jump up and backwards off of the front wheel.
killerjackalope (author)  hippojoe5 years ago
Maybe, not sure If I can do it, not sure if I can do it without snapping my forks either...
Well he just has a little 20" bmx bike so yours should be fine. If you can do a stoppie your bike should hold up for this.

horse - hop, front wheel off ground, then back, then land on both wheels or just back wheel
killerjackalope (author)  bumpus5 years ago
Ok so any major difference from a bunnyhop?
is that the english term for horse hop?
killerjackalope (author)  bumpus5 years ago
I would assume so they seem the same...

Trackstands. It'd seem like I'd be able to think of more things, but sadly, that's all I've got.
killerjackalope (author)  Bran5 years ago
Eh I'll have to practice them, I can do them for a bit but I don't use them that much, mainly because of my knees...

Bunnyhopping with both wheels in the air?
killerjackalope (author)  ll.135 years ago
Clearly bunnyhopping is necessary...
well yes, :) but I always thought bunny hopping was only with the front wheel, but apparently it can be done so you're totally off the ground... I don't see how it's done though (without clip-less pedals/shoes) =P
killerjackalope (author)  ll.135 years ago
Soon you'll see, though I'll no doubt have trouble explaining it...

You should go on unbeatable banzuke.
killerjackalope (author)  Doctor What5 years ago
I see any suggestions towards this, till minideathcam is complete that isn't happening...
Aww. You could promote instructables too (by wearing an instructables robot T)
killerjackalope (author)  Doctor What5 years ago
Obviously, I can't find a vid of the course though, when I get the cam working you'll see just what I can do on that bike, lol a turned changed in my favourite forest to cycle, I jumped over the river...
How big was the river?
killerjackalope (author)  Doctor What5 years ago
Around 8-10 feet where I jumped it...
Was there sharp rocks below to cushion your fall?
