Today here I’m going to show you some easy tricks you could do. If you’re a beginner bike rider and don’t know how to do any tricks.
I’m not going to go super in-depth on these tricks. I’m just going to kind of show you what they are and give you a tip on them.
The first one is catwalks. Basically, you just pull up on the bars as you push, as you put pressure on the pedal and it lifts you up, and then you just carry your speed by pedaling. And you also carry your balance by pedaling. You start to fall down a little harder.
Number 2 is a little frame surfer. So, this is every kid’s favorite trick. With one foot on the seat and your other foot on the frame.
If you’re feeling a little bit froggy, you can put your foot upon the stem here and steer with your foot. This is for a beginner.
So, we’re just gonna stick to the regular surfer, pop on your seat and frame. You just hopped from your pedals to your seat and frame, you know, right away. So, when you go on an adult BMX bike all process is the same.
This one, here’s an honorable mention. Shout out. Here’s I don’t even know what this is called, but basically you swing your back leg over onto your opposite peg, and then you put your front foot on your front peg, and then you just drop the front end. Now I’ll show you.
You want to learn the flat lines. That’s a good starting point right there. Number three is X up, right? There’s a couple of ways to do this.
So, you pick which way is, were comfortable to do your X up and when I first learned the hand that comes over top the hand that’s out in front when you’re asked sometimes it was easier for me to turn that handle.
So, I would turn that hand around and then do the exit bride that’s okay for a beginner. If you want to learn the right way, keep your hands like this, loosen them up.
It’s like you’re holding them with your index finger and thumb, and you just keep all the other fingers loose. So, your kind of just lift up the front. Do your acts up ride, lift it up, pop back.
So, the next one is like a rocket manual, but with one peg, instead of two, it makes it easier. Cause you can use your back foot to bounce back. Put your foot on the back peg, pull up on the front end, and then swing your leg. That’s off the peg to just keep yourself balanced.
The next one is my personal favorite is a magnet, basically, what this is, this is like a bunny hat, but your feet come off first, and then you kind of do the bunny hop motion, which is exactly this pulling up on the front end and pushing forward like this without causing your feet are going to be on the bikes. You have to actually do this motion and then put your feedback on it.
Amazing one is afoot jam to fakie flat or just a foot jam in general, flat for beginners. You just ride it. Little foot jam, put your foot in your tire, hop back on the pedal and you can ride away.
If you have fakies, you can ride backward into your fakey, but it’s a really easy trick for beginners. So here is one of my favorites and I learned it from doing to her. Check me out.
This only works. If your bike falls. Like with your bars facing the proper way up. So, if your STEM’s facing forward, if your bars are on the ground, it’s not going to work. And it works with pegs, I guess.
I didn’t know that, but now I do and I don’t think, I don’t know if it matters where you, where your stuff is in the middle.
So, you basically just give you your, it might actually, it’s probably easier with pegs. It looks easier with pegs.
If not, you’re going to have to ride a lot, rely on your crank arms, but when your bikes like this, you just kind of give a little kick to your back wheel and your grip goes right into your hand.
Here’s a good one and no hand-dried ones. Riding with no hands, basically, the trick to this is having a little bit taller seat, and instead of standing on your pedals, you stand on your cranks, and then you can balance with no hands all day. It’s easier when you’re rolling. I’ll show you.
The next one I believe is what we’re on now is a pull-up bar. There are a few ways to do this. I’m gonna do it at the beginner method.
The regular way to do it is to when you’re standing on your cranks is to just kind of use that pedal pressure to pull up and then throw the bar. But we’re not going to do it that way because it’s the beginner way.
This works. If you have pegs, if you don’t have peds, you can still do it by standing on your bolts. It’s a little sketchier, but if you have a peg, you can just put your front foot on the back peg or vice versa, whatever feels comfortable, and then pull up, slang them, and then also another way to do it.
Once you get that down is it if you have a peg on your back foot, or if you’re running four pegs and you put your back foot on the pedal and pull up the bar, and then it looks like you’re not standing on. It’s just one little trick there.
Now it’s about a little flat ground bike spin. This is actually my favorite. I’m going to walk you through this, right? This one’s a little bit confusing, but it’s super easy.
So basically, what we’re going to do is jump off the bike, keep your pedals flat so you can jump back on it. So, you want to jump off your bike to your back foot.
Then we’re going to do is kick the bike out. You can be walking with it. You’ll kick the bike out like this. So, like, you know what I’m saying?
You’re going to throw the back wheel out with your arms and then as you do that, you’re going to let this happen.
Then you’re going to let the bike swing around your arm. And then you’re going to hop back on it. So this is the motion you’re going to do and then you’re going to jump back on your pedal. So I’m going to do one for you.
It’s really easy. It’s just a little confusing, but once you figure that out, it’s one of the most fun tricks. It’s where you turn around while you’re on the bike and you sit on your bar is basically what you want to do is when you’re riding, you want to swap your feet like that, and then turn your body around, sit on your bars and you go.
Pedal backward. See, went sideways. Some reason we’re going to fix that real quick little bonus one. We had to call Shawn in for that one. The more speed you have, the easier it is to bounce swept it, maybe this is not the beginner trick.
