Will I Ever Learn The Wheelie?



Trent says "It's easy mate, just lean back..."



I arrived in Vermont thanks to Fisher Mechanic Ben Coates!



Here is Trent showing the art of the 30 mph wheelie!

So yesterday I went on a chill 2.5 hour road ride with Trent Lowe, arguably the best canidate for the U-23 World Championship this season. Now all season one of my goals and vain of my existence has been to learn the infamous "wheelie". I have had personal lessons from the industries finest: Adam Craig, Ross Schnell, Travis Brown, Ariel Lindsey, Barry Wicks and now Trent Lowe. Even their help I am still without the skill.... But on a mission!

Trent has some serious skillz and can ride the wheelie for miles and at speeds that blow my mind!

If you ever learn the secret please share. Been on a 15 year mission to learn the wheelie and still am not even close. A 12 year old puts me to shame.

well your height doesn't help a whole lot....!

everyone says keep the arms bent only a tiny bit, maybe get a biggins bike to try it on....having the rear wheel tucked underneath the frame helps.

doing the manual version is a goal of mine as well.
