hey everybody this is Heavypedalist, i’ve been unicycling for three months and im a noob
so whenev i try to hop seat-out i keep turning in circles… im learning how to 180 unispin (like i said, im a noob) and i need suggestions as to how i can hop seat out easier and how i can fix my habit of hoppin in circles…help!
On purpose, hop in circles in the opposite direction. After you’ve done this for a bit you’ll be able to detect what’s making you drift the other way.
thanks! i’ll give that a try
I used to do this ALL the time, it really got on my nerves
Just do what john suggested, and also practise just riding with the seat in front too, this will help you get your pedal pressure more even, lessening the turning!
yea, become really good at riding sif. learn turns and even learning to idle sif helps (although i never actually idle sif now…)
thank you guys i’ll try this out as soon as i get my sixsixone shin/ankle pads today!! and real quick i was wondering what a good psi is for the tire? i have a maxxis 20’’ trials tire and the wall isn’t that tall so whenev i jump to the side it feels like the tire slips out a little. maybe my psi is too low? 35-50 psi is the recommended pressure and i set it to 40 psi. im about 160 lbs if that makes a difference
would a lower psi help me jump higher?
40 PSI and slipping out easily doesn’t sound right, probably your guage is out!
Just pump it up as much as possible, then let air out gradually and find what works for you best!
