It’s been a couple of weeks since our last how to….
How are you all getting on so far? Have you learnt all the how to’s so far, if you have… Well done you’ve been putting the work in!
Today it’s time to teach the peg wheelie.
Steps to learn:
If you learnt the backwards peg wheelie I taught in Episode 4 whatever you foot you stand on the peg with, go with that foot. My prominent foot is left foot, with right foot my balance foot.
Take one push off or pedal, straight line.
-Use your standing peg foot as close to the dropout as possible, this helps with the bikes stability.
– Start with your arms bent, pull up straighten arms.
– Your balance foot will swing back and forth as you work out the balance point.
– Try and keep the front wheel just a few inches off the ground. Don’t pull the front end up too hard, you will flip off the back of the bike.
– Try not to touch any brakes on this trick, I use my thumb on the bar as shown in the video.
– Set yourself a target, one parking space, two parking spaces. Have some fun with it.
