    Saving money, hooligan style.



    I started seriously trying to do proper wheelies last summer.

    I could never hold them up longer than about 20 feet or so... and I was horribly out of control, chasing the front wheel, and panic braking.

    Took me about 2 months riding to and from work practicing my wheelies to get this good.

    Unfortunately, the width of the back tire is about the only thing that keeps me going relatively straight Haha. I can't do a wheelie for the life of me on any other bike.

    Hope you guys like my little clip of a video.

    Nope, definitely Larry tires.

    Thanks for the positive comments guys

    I mainly made the video to see what I looked like while doing a wheelie...

    I feel much less in control than I make it look Haha.

    looks pretty solid dude! I have never been able to wheelie (but i can manual from a half pedal for blocks) any bike really well, but its really hard with my offset pugs
    your 29er may float over roots and rocks, but my superlight 26 just plain floats
