Hi! I am 188 cm tall and struggling learning to do a manual. Is it harder to learn if you are a tall guy? I ride a Stumpjumper Large..,

I don't know about size, but just make sure you can wheelie really well because that is easier, and it will help with manuals

I am 193 cm tall and I can manual, it just takes a lot of practice to find that sweet spot without taking it too far. Definitely a bit harder to find that balance point for taller people I'd assume, so start with wheelies to help get more comfortable.

I would think it is easier, you don't have to Jerk the bike up, just hang off the back.
