    New question here. help on rollbacks

    Hi all, I have been working on trying to do roll backs and was wondering is there any secrets about how to do it. 1. Should I be sitting on the seat or standing 2. is there a special gear combo that works better 3.this might sound dumb but just checking if Iím doing it right, but u do use your brakes?
    Thanks, matt

    well, the way i learned to roll back in general was to roll up an incline, stall on the front wheel or "stompy" as some call it. then as you come down let off both brakes and start to roll down. start to turn your bars a bit whichever way you want to turn around. then use the rear break to stop yourself and turn around. i know that is kind of a vague description but later today if i can get a quick clip of it i will.

    keep your wieght over the rear wheel when rolling back, turn the bars slightly to the direction you want to turn and push down on the pedal as its coming up/use your rear brake slightly and kinda pull the bike around. it think its best to learn this without the aid of a brake since its all about having your pedals where they need to be when you start turning....it will come natural if you practice it enough...its hard to explain to someone with out being there in person to show how its done..find some rider's that can do it and ask em to show you how its done....best place to learn this is on a small 3-4ft 1/4.
