What are some beginner friendly front- and backwheel tricks?
« on: February 27, 2016, 04:47:56 PM »
I'm picking up riding again after a long hiatus. Over the years I continuously tried getting better but tricks would never progress, despite many hours of practice. These are the tricks I focused on over the years: spinning peg wheelies (in preparation for time machines later), McCircles, fwd steamrollers (which are doable, but killing for my back), and front yards. I always hit the same wall with these for some reason.
These are mostly the basics, but what are some alternatives to try and learn before attempting those again? I think I need to feel what it's like again to get good progress on a trick, otherwise I'll lose motivation again.
Also, I finally have front brakes again, so that should help.

I'm in the same boat. Back after 25+ years and I don't even remember all the tricks I used to do. Have you tried fire hydrants? They're easy to start and can get you into hang fives, turbines if you grab the seat, etc...
