Re: Trick of the Month March 2013 - Hang 5

Sorry it took so long for me to get to the PC. We are back to one of my fav tricks for TOTM. I get more question about doing a Hang 5 than any other trick out there. If you have the basic hang 5 down. Try it on your opposite foot. If you have that one down try it one handed. If you have that one down try it with your opposite hand. Try it backwards. If you have all the variations mastered. Help some one else learn.
Keep on Riding!

I wrote this over in another thread, but it fits here too.  Hopefully copy/paste doesn't screw this up too bad.


I won't say this is the absolutely perfect advice, but it works for me.


The biggest tips to me are:



Lock in between the grips, seat and peg.  You make this nice solid connection with the bike and suddenly it's stable.


If your bike wants to flop to the side, you're not on the seat well enough.



Instead of hanging on for dear life, you're really just resting on the seat, grips and peg, but your arms are pretty straight but not elbow locked and your fingers are really not doing much.


Quit trying to correct with your arms.  It's your leg that does it.  If your arms are even able to correct forward and back much, then reread my first point again.


Don't look at the front wheel, look a little ahead of you.  It will feel like you're looking up more than you really are.


Don't flail around.  Smooth easy motions with your whole leg from the hip, not just bending at your knee.


If you're putting your foot straight down or even worse, forward, then you're not committing enough, you need to get the bike up higher.  Your leg will be between slightly back and very far back when it works.


Don't snap up into it and for all that's Holy don't hit your brakes.  Unweight your back wheel, take your balance foot off the pedal and straighten your arms until the seat is in position.  Done.  No force needed.


If you need off, just step over the bars with your balance foot.  I don't think I've ever not caught myself in way too many years of falling on these, it's just intimidating at first.

This months trick is special thanks to Jake Umberger it will be the Locomotive. I remember when it was trick of the month a few years back. There were a ton of photos being submitted. Sorry I am so late but lets make it the best 2 weeks that are left. Rear wheel tricks are not in my bag so if anyone can post just this single trick and help others out that would be great. Thanks Jake for hitting me up on Facebook.
Keep on Riding!

Ha! Thanks for the shout out Mark!
I actually already have this trick down, but I have been meaning to get them rolling instead of scuffing. Guess I know what to work on!

Melon, the trick to lard yards is making sure you are pushing the tire along the tire and not sideways. You also need to hold the grip right at your hip to get the right angle. Actually learing locomotives might help as you are right over the tire so you kick along the tire. Might train you for lard yards at the same time.

Here is a trick I still want to personally learn. I have never got the hang of any spining tricks. It has been trick of the month before and I have heard of some success stories. They weather is getting nice I think in most places in the world. Lets see if we can make some success stories happen.
