I am improving well on my trials but I really lack in skinny riding and standing still.
I used the search for about 10 minutes and couldn’t find anything.
Heres the dealio:
When I ride a skinny, I tend to barrel through it. This usually causes me to fall to one side. How did you guys learn to ride skinny so slow. I’ve tried holding onto posts but nothing works.
I find myself doing unnecessary hops loads. I can’t seem to stay in one place. Is there any sort of training you guys to to prepare yourselves and better yourselves at standing still?
For longer, curving, or uphill skinnies particularly rounded ones or really small ones any side to side motion of your wheel will throw you off.
I too suffer from going too fast on skinnies, but its more a habbit thing. I can do them slowly I’m just so used to plowing through them that I havn’t taken the time to practice it.
Really all it takes to get better at either of these things is practice. I also find that natural trials helps alot at getting rid of stupid hops, because on some surfaces if you hop around you will loose your grip or balance.
I suck at skinnies…alot…for a while I dedicated all my time to practicing…I was practicing on a long piece of wood about 3’’ wide, and I was bad…so I’ve given up some. Jumping came a lot more natural. After half a year of riding I hit 80cm, but I’ve had trouble w/ skinnies. I thought to myself that if I just practiced more street and jumping I’d automatically get better…but I’m guessing that’s not gonna work…so I’ll probably start practicing more…I’ll try and set up a rail that might work
