Re: Nose Wheelies - Whats Your Secret?

Sorry no vid but its not as pretty as going slow, at speed when you start to brake hard the bike rapidly decelerates and i only let the back wheel lift about 30cm approx off the ground until the bike slows right down( Not sure exactly how high the wheel is getting as I am not looking behind me when braking). I do this on my hard tail jump bike with a 203 rotor on the front,I find it alot harder to do on my downhill bike. Ive seen gee atherton do it at the end of one of his downhill runs at speed, he makes it look good.

I did a beauty on my road bike once - stopping on the concrete before riding into thick gravel. Bike came up to balance point and then the rear wheel bashed down :crazy:

Discovered its not easy to get shit out of Chamoix :blush:
