Things that many new riders want to learn and some expert/pro riders can help with or even challenge themselves with a new variation or entry or exit with. We will keep it fun for rear and front wheel riders.
Keep on Riding!


Im planning to have a pop at learning all the variations of the trick of the month aswell. Can already do normal kk and op side kk so im going to try and focus on learning switch and switch op side kk as it would help with a few other things i want to learn, around the world variations in particular!

Here is my progression:

I feel much more confident popping into them

I'm rolling them longer

Would you say you could learn the Karl kruiser in a month ?



My 1st video was taken about 2-3 sessions after i first tried to pop into them


So i say YES B)

Your making great progression. I was thinking about making a bail video as well. I was falling all over the place trying to land one clean. I had not rode in about a month. Its hard work to get tricks all the time.

Who's in this month??


I had a great sesh today came off pretty hard (1st time really hard) >:D


Started trying to get into it from a steamroller and just swinging the frame in and out of a steamroller but not grabbing it until it got back round behind (which is when i took my spill)


Also tried opposite (don't know if there is a certain name ??? ) with my right foot on the left front peg swinging in and out of a half lash and grabbing it when it came back around


Then the snow turned the ground wet  >:( >:( >:(

The balance point for a Hang 5 is very different from the Karl. It will however teach you the concept of rolling. You can learn either one first. I personally think Karl is much harder than a hang 5. That's my personal thought though. The easiest way to leran to balance point is to keep walking into it. After awhile you will learn how to just pop in and find that point and keep it. Give it a go just remember to have fun while trying and don't get frustrated if you don't do it in the first 100 tries. What I used to do was work on 2 tricks at the same time so I would not get board. I would do one trick going one way and I would get back to my starting point in another trick.
 
Hey Melon,
   Great update! I only had time to ride that one day to shoot video. I have not rode since then. I really wanted to pull a new combination this month too. Back Wheel trick next month.
Keep on Riding!

If theres ever a trick you want to learn, you just gotta go for it. Doesnt matter if people think youre ready for it or not. Karl Kruisers are much harder than hang-5s in my opinion as well. KKs take much more upper body strength than the hang-5 also. Go for it dude. Youve got nothing to lose and everything to gain. Its also an excellent "set-up" trick. Once you get it dialed, you can just put your balance foot onto the other peg, and walla! youre doing a half hiker. Have fun with it!

I never really trained them a lot, only tried sometimes when I got bored... I couldn't roll it longer than a half metre... A week ago I changed my Crankset, my seat and my spokes... No I can roll the Karl Kruiser :D. 1 time I also landed it with ride in and out. Without ride in I also got it in a circle, but I am not going to practice it because there is nothing to link it with at the moment, so maybe in some months ^^
