    How Long Did It Take?

    I was just wondering how long it took everyone to learn how to do a manaul for at least 20 to 25 feet?

    A long, long time. You just have to practice everywhere you go and it'll come to you. Just remember ass way back. It's in the ass/feet, not the arms. You want to thrown your ass back and press forward against your pedals.

    I was out practicing today and i hav seen alittle progress over the past couple of weeks. In the summer I practice everyday, but during school its about once or twice a week. I just gotta give it time.

    At first, I think it may have taken me about a month to manual that far. But now, as soon as I can find the balance point, I'm good to go. Catwalking 25+ feet took me a few days.

    In the summer when I've got no work to do, I usually ride 4 to 8 hours a day. I'll rep Nemesis Project up here in canada, so I need get some more saddle time next summer
