Hi, I want to learn to backflip my bike and wanted to know the best type of bike to learn on

I ride a 29” trail bike so thinking a jump bike? Should it have suspension? I will pick another bike up more suitable to learn on, what bikes did people learn on?

Any help will be appreciated

Hmmm. I would think that learning to flip would be easiest on a hard tail, but ultimately, the rig that you want to flip is probably the one to learn on. Find a park that you can learn to flip into a pit, then onto a resi, then take to dirt once comfortable with the rotation. You'll have to add some speed, as the rotation will absorb some of your speed. Good luck!
