    Trick Vocabulary

    I know we have some true talent on this forum, so I'm wondering what "ole' bag a tricks" do you guys carry with you to the local DJ's? Me and my friends have a rule that you have to land it twice before it counts.

    My list:
    x-up
    barspin
    no-footer
    no-hander
    nothing
    tabletop
    can can
    no-footed-can can
    toboggin
    tailwhip (not yet over big doubles)
    half-ass-superman seat-grab (looks more like a no-footer seat grab )
    180
    360
    And one super nasty and sketchy 360 whip

    x-up whip

    One thing that really helped me was a trampoline bike. Try all of your stuff on it first and get it dialed then it should come alot quicker on the DJ's

    hmm i don't really focas on doing too many tricks usually...just try to be smooth but my list would be:

    Moto-Whips both ways
    Abubaca
    poor/ok Tabletop
    180
    180 to tire tap to 180 out(aka 360 tired tap? )
    one footer
    one footed tablish looking thing
    x-up

    this winter im hoping to get 3s, no foot cans and tobagans down after i re-construct an old jump that is perfect for trying tricks on.

    Yeah, I know what you mean, some tricks just have way better flow and are way more fun. I love the feel of no footed cans, motowhips, tabletops, 360's, and nothings. Everything else kinda feels like the Circus to me.

    Me and my buddys are going on a road trip from Atlanta to Dallas, with about 40 other riders. It's gonna be great. I hope to add a few more tricks to my bag: Rodeo Heelclicker, Bikeflip, Truckdriver, Backflip, but the ultimate for me is a Flipwhip! I doubt they will be in my bag anytime soon, but I'm trying.

    I can't, for the love of god, get a turndown, on my bmx it's no problem, but I can't get my mtb to click.

    And yeah, I haven't quite figured out the tuck no hander, I can only do suicides too.

    for the t-down, my bar almost always ends up jambing me in the thigh (TT/handlebar clearance issues)
    and for the tuck, the barhump at the begining always feels just plain wrong and it's hard to get past...

    Haha, man we have the same exact problems, I thought I was just retarded, but glad to see you have the same thing going on.

    After a full day of jabbing my left thigh with the bars I decided to put it off till later, once I even got my leg wedged between my seat and bars and that wasn't fun I would like to get them locked in, but the low rise off the bars is very retarded for turndowns.

    I haven't tried a lookdown(unturndown) do you have any problems or tips for those?
