So I’ve been practicing freemounts on a thight spot :

And since the ground is so close to the beam I can mount the uni.
But I’ve seen guys in clips do the same while they stand on a chain or rope which maybe 40-50cm off the ground.
And I can’t seem to wrap my head around how they would mount it, but they do (although usually you don’t see the actual mount on video)…
- Do they have their saddle setup so low that they can walk over the rope, sit and then place their feet?
- Do they stand on one pedal first, keep balance and then throw their leg over the seat to get to the other pedal?
- Do they perform a jump mount?
- Does a buddy assist them off camera?
2 Examples (no actual ropes or chains, but the same applies I guess):
