Flatland tricks

Hey my name is Emele and this is my first post in the unicyclist.com forums. I want to know if anyone could describe or give a tutorial for some of the flatland tricks. I used the search function but not much came up. I like flatland alot and i want to learn some new tricks

A good person to PM or ask this question to is spencer hochberg. Hes a really nice kid, and is probably willing to help.

I agree that there needs to be more flatland tutorials around coz a lot of the tricks probably need the rider to be doing a lot of specific things right.

if you do a search you might find some good tutorial threads for flatland. A few months ago I made a thread asking for a tutorial for crankrolls and Spencer made a quick video to help with positioning and such hope it helps you guys out a little.

I think Spencer said something about not liking moment cranks once but now I think he likes them so I'm not sure on that but the fatter the crank the better because it gives you more room to stand on the crank. In the thread I linked Spencer said Torker DX cranks were pretty good cranks for flatlanding.

I think I just said DX cranks were probably better than freestyle cranks. I don't think stock moments are very good for flat, thats all I will say for now
