Do you mean do normal time machine, step free foot on seat post area then move peg foot to the pedal? Or did you mean something else?


I am currently working on this trick two different ways:


1) like in video: switch footed time machine then step up to pedal with free foot, then take switch foot off of peg and keep spinning
 
2) do regular time machine, step onto end of crank arm/spindle area with free foot, then move regular foot from peg to pedal, take other foot off of crank arm/spindle  and keep spinning.


#1 is easier for me but I am trying to learn it both ways for more control.


I have gotten better since I made the video but I still need more practice. I'll make another video if  I ever get this dialed...

I guess they don't paint them like they used to?

Nice, shows you're riding!!! Most frames will wear in that area. Perhaps the paint isn't as good nowadays tho

Interesting, at first I thought that was an S&M Intrikat bc of the tubing at the dropouts but it's a WTP

Definitely a common spot to show wear for sure, especially since I have been doing mostly back wheel tricks lately, lol.

Was just surprised by how quickly it wore through. I've only had the frame for ~9 weeks whereas all of my older frames have yet to show that kind of paint wear and they've all been ridden hard over years worth of time.

I'm not complaining (hope it didn't seem that way), was just making the observation. I'll ride it hard for a year or so and then probably repaint it. Atleast now my frame is no longer 'new' so I do t have to fret over every little scratch anymore!

And the s&m intrickat is such a nice frame. That is the frame I would have gotten if I could have found one with a 20" TT, but since I couldn't find one in that size I went with the WTP. I almost went with the heresy AscenD in 20" but decided against it as I didn't like the look of the bent tubing. Regardless I'm happy with the WTP.

A few posts up, back in May, I posted a video of my attempt at a pedal time machine. I have been working on this trick almost everyday since then. Most days I'm putting in around 45 minutes of straight practice on that trick alone.

I have gotten better and more consistent with it. I can sometimes spin it for 2-3 circles and I can even pump it a little. But I have yet to land it yet. I chicken out when it's time to drop the front end down and instead of just landing it I step off instead.it shouldn't be that hard, my foot is already on the pedal for Christ sake.

Very frustrated with this trick atm. I need to just commit and land the damn thing already.
