Heys guys and gals...

Due to a SERIOUS lack of funds at the moment, I'm riding without cranks... Last week, I got 360 degrees scuffing and pumps on peg wheelies reasonably down, but tonight, I want to move up a notch, and try Hang 5s, and some real wheel stuff.  Any hints/advice on riding crankless and switching front to back, etc..?

Cheers in advance - Morgan

put heavy pegs on the rear.
it helps keep some kind of counter balance out there when in foward steam / or mc circle.

I find it terribly hard to make the bike firehydrant to me with no cranks.
maby cause its too light weight.
not shure realley.
Old dudes can still rip

No need to "counterbalance" and sh*t. You'll just get used to the light weight.
But pegs in BB are a good idea.

I ran with pegs in the BB for about 1 month and it was a novelty that seemed cool at first, but in the end I got sick of it.  I don't hold the disrespect for crankless riders like a lot of people on this site, but it isn't for me. 

Pedaling is the bomb.
Will everybody stop killing each other, please?  Thank you and goodnight.

We have these on a bike that belongs to a friend of mine, thier amazingly fun!

I must admit though I like cranks better. no cranks makes everyone stare at you like a jackass.
