    Ride 4 Fun - the agressive XC video (Trek Fuel 90 - 2006)

    Hi! I hope that this post is ok here...

    After 8hours filming and riding (alone), and another hours editing and stuff, my new video is finished yet! The bike is a Trek Fuel 90- 2006. Take a look:

    I hope you like it. Because not everyone is a extreme mountainbiker, 99% of us are just cyclists, and there aren't many videos about that.

    Respect from Portugal to all kinds of mountainbikers out there!
    And always remember... Ride 4 Fun!

    You have to practice a lot, but the principal trick is learning how to use your rear brake. When you learn that (is not so hard) you can wheelie at downhills, step back, and just use the brake softly to keep the balance. This gives a look of manualing, and it feels great!! If you brake much, just pedal a litlle. If not, the front wheel hits the ground.

    (sorry any bad english...I'm Portuguese)

    how you actually lift up your front wheel? I am having difficulty lifting it properly, once I lift it, the bike will reach a certain acceleration but then it will return back to normal after the acceleration ended (its a short acceleration)

    You have to pull up the handlebar, at the same time that you give a stroke in the pedals. It's a synchronized move, and you have to practice it a lot to learn.
    OK, I think that's the time to show you another video...

    Just me, wheeling in my town...

    1º Learn how to lift the front wheel.
    2º Learn the rear brake trick
    3º Practice the equilibrium (lateral and front/rear)

    Just practice some wheelies during your rides, and after a months you will be wheeling like me or better .... You don't need to practice the wheelie all day long. Remember, just ride 4 fun
