I want this one back really bad. Learned this one on accident bitd. (called it a spastic McCircle back then when you kicked the tire.) Now I can't seem to get it back. Will be working on it for sure!

Is anyone getting these mccircles. I havnt had a great deal tryin them. Is there anyone with some helpful pointers.
Each time i try a trick of the month i end up not gettin that trick but getting a total different trick instead. Its wierd but i guess its getting somewhere

Yes I'm having some progress  ;D

I was trying them the other night and I got a few small ones but it is a weird feeling I have been able to spin backward steams for a long time but never tight I'm learning them opposite foot out of a fork glide and regular footed out of a forward steam but instead of a fire hydrant im scuffing into a mccircle

Each time i try a trick of the month i end up not gettin that trick but getting a total different trick instead. Its wierd but i guess its getting somewhere

I hear that the last couple of weeks I've been learning time machines but TOTM is awesome as it keeps tricks that I wanna learn but forget about in my head and my tip is to lean forward when spinning tight I was always leant back as I do in a normal backward steam

Yeah sort of lean forward as you go to scuff :-)
I got a few more (still heaps sketchy) yesterday so it is still pretty hard for me to explain exactly how to yet but I did notice I was leaning forward at the scuff

getting pretty tight spins from them now- lean forward a bit as the hydrant comes around, bending your knee on the inside foot helps put you over the top of the spin, balance is more with your torso going from looking in the direction of the spin to down over the spin, but i find it easier to really get it flying by bending your peg knee- when you bend the knee your able to lean the bike farther over and get it locked in. Ive been working turbining them but every time I get one to go forward, I have little to no speed. I see guys get the turbine almost as soon as they hit the mccircle...mine are happening at about 200 degrees from starting position- anybody got any tips?

Ahhh shot think im out on the stick b. still messing with these dam mccircles.
Man i could scuff as a kid. Then i got lanky and sh*t basically.
I cant keep my foot above the tire . Ive got this thing where i just through my foot back for balance to quick . I can float them round in a big circle but dam if i can scuff them into a tight circle.
Grrr

Hate to bump an old thread but I wanted to thank everyone who was involved with or contributed to TOTM for so long, and to GF.com for leaving it up as a sticky.

Haven't been on a bike since I quit riding vert/park about 10 years ago, but I've been sick the last few days and killed time by going through pretty much every page and video in this thread. I think I'll kill the next few days by shopping for new bike parts. :)
