I'm going to focus on learning to pedal-kick this year. Someday.

Well, here she is...

It's finally rolling and ridable. It's not pretty, SS wheel set, mismatched brakes, and toooo nice of brake levers... for a bike like this.

Now, I just have to ride the dam thing...

It's that thing all the kids do that they make look really easy......

It's the forward hopping motion while balanced on the rear wheel. I'm almost 100% certain that I will never be able to do it.

Sweet ride. Now get out and ride. I've been out 3 times, and can honestly say it's one of the hardest things I've tried. It's pretty frustrating when you watch guys your riding with hit huge gaps, and your working on track stands. I've decided to challenge my self, and I love it so far. My plan is to reward my self with a trials moto after a year of sticking with it. I figure it will give my time to save the cash, and keep me motivated.

Bummer...I was hoping it was something I could learn!

I am only working on balance, and 2 wheel stuff for the first 3 months. Bad habits are very hard to unlearn.

You all are a bunch of whhhhinnnnnners. I started out with the front tire on a bench about 20 inches tall. Then I would lean back and start hoping. After a while you will get the front wheel up and then eventually you will loop out, bust your ass and ask yourself silly questions.

Garth, there is nothing you could add to the RCP frame that would be better than the frame itself. I think it looks great. BB7' brakes? They will work great. Now a vid or GTFO.

When are you starting bicycle trials at San Ysidro events again Tony?

Hi Tony, BB5 brakes...they were free.

I'm 6'6" and about 275 lbs...the vid......will not be happening soon.

Although, maybe I'll do a Pay-Per-View short film....with three D glasses...

I'm trying to avoid the ass busting part.

I can get on the rear wheel, but pulling the trigger on the pedal-kick and rear brake release timing is a different story. Manuals are scary too.
