Not so much. Working on it though. The video's make it look so easy, I'm finding for me it's really not. Still working on it though.
Know what you mean, the better the rider the easier they make it look, stick with it tho, the last 3 years of my 38 year riding life have been some of the best, it's certainly satisfying to learn (and achieve) new techniques at this later stage of life

I remember the shifter was almost straight up and you had to kick it with your heel. What was the reason behind that?
