90 degree unispins onto and off of tire
leg arounds(left and right foot)
double leg arounds(only right foot)
gapped an 8 set
grinded a handrail
side hop of about 22"
rolling hop of about 24"
I improved my natural trials skills alot
hopping up from a crank grab
I actually don’t remember much of what I have learned this year…
a bunch of flip tricks
bc wheel 360s
Made my hop height better for a little while
a bunch of little things like wrap combos and stuff that I really don’t want to post individually.
2006 has been a banner uni (MUni mostly) year for me, having not ridden for 30 years since February, 2006!
no particular order:
rolling 180 hop-twist forward/backward
side mount leg around back
side mount leg around front
crank to rubber
sif hopping to rubber
4’ + drops side/forward
rolling hops/gaps 4’+
assorted picnic table & stair stuff BC!
I learnt pretty much everything I know besides how to ride (that was at the end of last year).
leg wrap mount
double leg wrap mount
1 ft wheel walking
ride down stairs
ride backwards down stairs
1 ft riding
high drops (6-7ftish) - high enough for me
rolling hops (6ftish)
backwards 180 rolling hops
those foot-on-tyre varial thingies that im not sure what they are called
pedal grab to rubber
crank grab to rubber
1ft riding backwards (kind ofish)
technical muni riding
grinding (kind ofish)
small jumps (2-3ftish)
ride up a QP
theres probably a lot more but I cant think straight right now
lots of little things,
other flip tricks
crank roll combos
smoothed up alot of my tricks
jumped an 11 set
learn to grind handrails
met amazing people
lots of trials and street rides
theres more but nothing else huge.
later jon A
The biggies were:
Wheelwalking greatly improved
Footplants(including landing back on the uni)
Returning to pedals after hopping on the wheel
Suicide mount(Finally. It’s not that hard, I just hadn’t tried it for at least a year)
Kick up mount.
That’s all I can think of right now.
My work on crank flips has been somewhat limited because of snow. But I’ve basically inproved on everything as well, like balance and control. Dang that’s a short list… better go ride, I still have 11 more days to bump it up.
I got roll hopping onto the tops of picnic tables
no-footers off of drops and 3 sets
big drops (arround 8 feet)
uni-spins off of drops
roll hop up a four set
and double seat wraps.
ya they’re not very hard to learn. You just have to commit and you’ll eventually be able to spin fast enough to nail it.
this quote pretty much summed up how I learned the 360.
I find that the biggest reason why people can do 180s, but not 360s, is because its really easy to just pivot 180 really quickly. Like you can jump, and pretty much just twist your legs and spin 180. But for 360, your whole body has to go rather than just the lower body. So it takes a lot more flow from the body and twist in the upper body. Very hard to explain. I find a 360 is a trick that will just come to you one day. Thats what happened to me.
