    is it possible?

    i have been riding for about a year now and since im only 15 and have no job i cant afford another bike. i have an 05 kona shred and ive been trying to make it a little bit more urban.
    heres my setup:
    soon to be sun ringle mtx welded urban camo rims
    race face handlebars
    marzocchi dirt jam 3
    bontrager big earl crank
    kona jackshit pedals
    holly rollers
    6 in discs in front and back

    is it possible to make a kona into an urban if so post some pics
    also i dont know if it is the geo of my bike but i cant pedal kick / shoot off of any ledges, i try to stall on my back tire and i fall foward
    any help with that?

    Removing front brake will take off unnecessary(to me) weight. For pedal kicks you'll need to practice, being in an easier gear helps a lot with those. Starts the same as a manual, except once you're on the balance point, you lurch forward and up while letting go of the rear brake and "kicking" the pedals. I can't explain it much better than that.

    one of my friend told me to "hump" the frame?
    i know where my balance point is but i cant seem to get it while trying to shoot
    is there any way to practice it other than go to a parking lot and try it for hours?
    because im one of the people who if they dont get it in one day gets all p!ssed and flips out on random people

    No I don't think it is possible to get it in one day.
