Do you still remember your 1st bmx trick?
« on: November 23, 2013, 09:02:50 AM »
Hi guys, do you guys still remember your 1st bmx trick? How long does it takes you to learn? I'm learning my 1st bmx trick - peg wheelie and i read it suppose to be the easiest one but 2 weeks of practicing and yet no sucess. Lol.

Yep peg wheelies on my ride to school each day.
If your just starting out it may seem to be taking a while. But it will happen.
And will lead you onto the next trick.

It was a footjam tailwhip.

I hate that trick to this day more than any other trick I've ever done. I never want to do one again. It's not even easy for me NOW.

Yeah, great question!
-half barspin, then barspin on flat, second was 180 and wheelie.
Footjam Tailspin was late, there was no pegs and no gyro back in that time (however pegs dont needed 4 that).
Brakeless was the only option to do full barspins..lol
We made pegs of a large bright nut or double nut plus a funky screw on the axle, wich always bent like sh3.. ..funky stuff..haha
Cheers!!!
-eyh, sorry -first trick was wheelie on a collapsible bike with backrake..HAHAHAhaaaaaa
CEERS ..whyeah, that thread bring back good memories!!!!  :beer:
-yeah, little drunk at the moment, but nice one:
Remember.., we took off the brakes to make a full barspin because of the cable stop the bars...
-edit: f* cable!!!
...yeah! -cheers again!!! (...ummg)

First trick was half a bar spin, the same night I tried footjam tailwhips didn't land one for over a year! Was spinning the bars 3 full spins at one point! I was like the king of bar spins :) . . . . then hop bars came about.
''let me tell ya something i did a front n rear wheel hang on the cloping on the slide of the spine, now i stick to street!''

''do you freestyle?''

However serious you take it general public sees us as just dicking about on 'kids' bikes, some people could do to remember that and smile a little.

TJ! I couldn't agree with you more. I still have scars on my right toe. Curse Bryan Blyther for ever inventing it in the first place. Hahahahaha

This was my first trick too, and I feel the same way haha.

Track stand or endo; I'm not sure which came first.  Once pegs came out, I think it was probably back wheel hops.

no handed riding, curb endo's and toe jam endos for me. but as far as a "real" trick it was framestands.
 
I agree with TJ JM & Wesbmx'r too! I shredded many a toe and many pairs of vans slip ons doing foot jam tailwhips.  The brake bolt would always get me!
