Bike Skills Project – Episode 15 – Smooth Out Your Ride with a ‘baby’ manual

Another awesome way to make your rides 10x better and impress the opposite Sex Whenever we have two ‘bumps’ close together we can do a little manual to make our front wheel miss the ‘down’ portion of the first obstacle and the ‘up’ portion of the second obstacle. Even that classic ‘pop-a-wheelie’ will do the trick for smaller gaps if your manual needs work This has it’s origin in BMX where they use a manual to clear the front wheel over 1 or more ‘whoops’ . Adapting this to bumps, roots, rocks and logs on the trail can smooth out your ride and even make ‘impossible’ obstacles possible !
