What tricks would people like to learn? Answered

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 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

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...

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.

Trackstands. It'd seem like I'd be able to think of more things, but sadly, that's all I've got.

Clearly bunnyhopping is necessary...

ll.13 (author)killerjackalope2008-05-03

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
