Default what am I doing wrong? ww


Hey guys,

not sure if this should go in video, but whatever,

I was wondering if you guys would tell me what I'm doing wrong on my
'wheel walking' (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=1gFrhBtqdfw)

Also, when you tell me what I did wrong, please say specific attempts
so I can watch as well

Looks like you are doing realy well, not much looks wrong. If your
driveway is sloped like it looks in your video I would also sugest
either trying it in the direction or finding some flat ground to try it
on. Keep on practicing, it does take a very long time to master.

You're doing pretty well, and you're leaning back enough. Try doing it
on a gentle uphill or atleast on flat and you'll have it in no time.
Try and control the speed of the wheel with your heels and don't go too
fast. That's what worked for me. But it will probably take many hours to
be able to do it really well so just keep practising.

Yeah, longer strides definitely, and lean back more.

BTW, how are those qu-ax cranks working out with the nimbus?

What you're doing wrong is....you wasted time making this video when you
could be out practicing....
Keep leaning back but try to just step off if you're falling too far
back instead falling on your buttocks,
There isn't much we can tell you though...
