I was wondering what tricks you guys have cooked up for the BC wheel, and which ones you can actually do/land? I have been BCing like a mad man recently, I rarely ride my normal unis anymore. I also encourage everyone to at least try one if not buy one.
Here are the tricks I can Do/Land (I am listing the ones I would think out of the ordinary):
Kick up mount
Here are the tricks i am working on:
Tire Grab/No footer
Tricks i have thought of but only wish i could do:
180 To backward riding
Ride Down Stairs
Hand rail grind
wowww…you’re pretty amazing. I REALLY wish I had a BC Wheel so I could try some of those. how in the WORLD do you do a no footer on a BC Wheel??? do you just jump off and like kick your legs out, then bring them back…? well. that’s still quite amazing.
one that I thought of that’s not on your list, and I don’t know how possible it would be although I know it would be terribly hard… it’d be like a rolling unispin, only how you do it is you jump off the platforms and spin your body 180 degrees, then land on the platforms again and keep riding backwards. I’m quite sure it’d be possible, but I know it wouldn’t be easy.
Tire grab- Hopping up and grabing the tire, can be mixed with many things, off drops, up curbs, over stuff.
Shifty- Really hard for me to explain, just jumping and turning your bc and lower body 50 or so degress then turning it back, can be mixed with stuff also
No footer- jumping off the bc and landing back on, or grabing the tire and taking you feet off then puting them back on
The jump mount, or at least the way i do it, it i walk at a normal pace, while walking, drop the bc, and on its second bounce jump on
Idle- Iv been trying to find a way to do this, either just pivioting with your hips, and swinging it back and forth, or puting you hand on the tire and rocking it back and forth, or puting a foot on the tire and rocking it back and forth
pedaling- bacicly like the skate mount, but if you slow down too much just take a foot off and give it a push
Sound like your pulling off some cool tricks, I’d really like to see the no footer and the tire grab. Another trick you might want to try is a table top (while in the air angle the BC with your feet so the wheel is parallel to the ground).
Trick I have landed
riding down stairs
shifty – 90o turn in the air and then another 90o turnso your facing forwards again
big down slope ledge grind
180 pivot with foot as an aid
180 pivot with out foot
one foot riding
Tricks I’m working on
shove it or BC spin AKA uni spin
foot plant shove it
foot plant platform flip AKA back flip
an elevator drop – starts by riding on the bottom of the platforms hop off the platforms and the platforms will fall right side up and you land on them right side up
Hey Jeff, The no footer is a pretty easy trick, i bet you could do it, Look at the picture you have on your “Trialers” section on spaced out, thats where i go the idea, like the pic you have, just land back on the plates.
I have been doing alot of skinny riding. I have been getting in to hops and tire grabs. i can pedal too. umm, yesterday i landed a body varial in the sand:D I have done a little off road stuff. I can grind. 180s are really easy but i cant ride backwards, i can 180 pivot too but i have the same problem, i cant go backwards. I have been doing stillstands but they are really easy because i sort of cheat and push the tire against my leg( i can do 1 footed still stands too)
I’ve been riding a BC for a couple months but not a whole lot and I’m still sorta working on riding it haha. I’ll ride it and get it good in that session and then I won’t ride for a while and I have to start over. I can skate mount, and hop three pallets. My hopping is fairly consistant and I can make any hop under 10"'s almost every time.
Oh yeah I worked on like plate-grabs/grinds only a little but no luck.
I hope to get long plates soon, and make mine a 2.5"/19" combo. How many of you guys are riding long?
