Introduction: How To: Basic BMX Tricks

The tricks in this instructable are the most basic for new and up and coming bmx riders.

Step 1: What You Should Have

Well, first of all your gonna need a bmx bike (not a mountain bike).
A man made water way or wash and a street.
For me and my friends, protection (helmets padding) optional.

Step 2: J-Hop

To jay-hop pull up and lean back. once your front tire is at desired height push forward bringing up your back tire. Now that both tires are in the air pull the whole bike towards you to reach your full height.

Step 3: 2 Tire Stall(done in Wash)

This is a park trick.
Ride strait up the face of the transition(the lip). Now j-hop and turn the bike 90 degrees which ever way you want. Once your tires reach the top of the transition hold your bike in place then just hop 90 degrees back in.

Step 4: Disaster(done in Wash)

This is a park trick.
Ride strait up the front of the transition. Almost at the top jay hop and spin 180 degrees. when you hit the ground make sure your back tire is out of the pipe and your front tire is in then hop back in.

Step 5: Fakie Out

To fakie out simply roll backwards while pedaling backwards too then turn around straiten up and ride forwards.

Step 6: 180

To 180  you are going to want to ride forward then lift your front tire and look over your shoulder. then lift and kick out your back tire turning you completely around. Once backwards fakie out.

Step 7: 360

A 360 is done the same way as a 180 but, a 360 is one complete spin all the way around no fakie needed.

Step 8: Bubuca(done in Wash)

This is a park trick
To bubuca ride strait up the transition then j-hop at the top at the top of the transition land on your back tire, lean back and balance. Hold, hop in and fakie out.

Step 9: You Can Ride!!!

Now that you have those basic tricks down you can learn the variations.

    Same I had a very heavy mongoose invert 2002 model I replaced the rims and forks if that's not an option try removing all brakes and chain guard maybe the reflectors but I would try to get some chromolly parts and aluminum rims only 1000 grade so its not too weak but is still light

    alised you should try leaning forward and pulling back if it doesn't work try doing it harder

    how do you lift the back of the bike for a bunny hop

    i just got a Bmx bike and im taking little steps at a time standing up but i dont know how to lift the front wheeler for beginners i need some ideas first time on a Bmx

    When you wanna do a bunnyhop you have to lift the front and at the same time stretch yourself back then quickly lift the back part of the bike

    your not suppose to jayhop you nees to learn to bunny hop. This way you will hop higher.And @theevilfrog just stfu he is a little kid and if you want to talk bikes than your bike is a POS. I have a stolen cherry frame, shadow vultus bars, animal jump off remix stem, fit blade 2 forks, animal headset, fit indent cranks and bearings, animal javelin front hub laced to a primo vs rim, and odyssey antigram back hub laced to a 7ka rim. My bike is about 19-20 lb

    I hope your joking... J-hops get you much higher than bunny hops also stolen is a really bad make and the weight of a bike really doesn't matter. Some people have 40Ib bikes and pull of flails and stuff
