Our site: being able to ride a bike on the back wheel is not only a useful knowledge of the forest, soil and concrete, it does look tough too! Emil Lindgren teaches you how to master the balance on the rear wheel.
Those who at an early age began drifting, playing and tricks on his bike has a lot of technology in itself since childhood. To ride a bike on the back wheel is nothing you necessarily need to overcome in order to win the World Cup, but it makes you quite clearly safer on the bike. When I was little we competed often in running on the rear wheel over the “Sweden map” painted on the school yard. When it was completed, we continued to the entire school’s plan. The basic technique I developed then have undoubtedly helped me later in life.
Rear wheel travel – so do the experiment in a slight uphill gradient and select a gear that provide moderate resistance. Too light nor too heavy gear enables you, in the best case, up the front wheel in a metre or two. Most common problem is that you “walked out” and unable to hold the wheel in the air or to depress too heavy so you can’t be bothered to keep the bike near the balance point.
Step 1: sit on the saddle, tread slowly, lower the upper body down against the handlebars, pedaling to the pedals while you jerk to the handlebars, jutting out his arms and move the upper body weight backwards.
Step 2: try to find the center of gravity when you’re just so far behind that you find yourself in the situation where you almost turn over backwards but still manages to keep his balance. The whole thing should be a well synchronized combination of movements. Weight distribution in combination with pedaling harder it is to lift the front wheel.
According to the bike maintaining tips of healthvv, have a finger ready on the rear brake and adjust so that you don’t turn it over, gently turn the rear brake. In case of emergency brakes you hard, then fall rapidly in the front wheel down hill. This requires very abrasive to find balance and it can be smart to start at a base that is a little smoother if you’d turn over.
The same thing, but on the contrary
To ride a bike on the back wheel is something you can have the direct benefit of while riding in the technically difficult terrain. To do the same on the front wheel is rarely necessary in a competitive situation or any cycle situation at all.
However, the type of training to give you a good balance and control of front brake and tyre grip. Start doing the slalom in moderate speed and at slightly different basis.
When you are used to using only the front brake to stop, you can start experimenting with shifting body weight forward while braking. It’s going to get the rear wheel to lift and by learning to manage the brake power you can get to a nosewheelie, that is where you roll on the front wheel.
As with rear-wheel riding, this is an exercise that requires a lot of training and that could be dangerous if you go too hard from the beginning. When you start getting full control on your front and rear brake, balance, emphasis, and when the tires inside from the ground, you are sure to get better control of the bike in the technically difficult terrain. When the turns are tight or you want to quickly place the bike – then it is good to have full control.
