    Manual Questions

    Today when I was riding near my house, I was doing wheelies and i stopped pedaling during one of them and manualed for about 10 ft before the front end dropped. To get to the balance point though i had to pedal up from an almost standstill then i had to get a little speed before manualing. This is the only way i can get to the balance point for manuals. If this is wrong could someone tell me how to do it correctly. Also, when i do wheelies i do them in a crouched position over the seat but not sitting down. I cant seem to keep the front end up when I try to wheelie sitting down. Any tips would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

    search the forums. many how to threads. You should learn the proper way which is riding at a good speed, pulling up and balancing. Search it though

    well when you do a manual you should be behind the seat not really over it
