take your right foot over your toptube and press it HARD on your front tire behind the fork arch. then kick your bike with your left foot to your right (counter clockwise). try to keep balanced on your tire (easier said than done). wait for your bike to come around (you hve kick your bike pretty hard) then try and jump back on the pedals. it takes a long time to learn (i cant even get on the pedals most of the time). just be patient and consistent.

THanks a lot for the picture. I am wondering if it matters weather you have right foot forward or left foot forward will that effect which way you spin it?

you could spin it the other way if you are more comfortable balacing on your left and kicking with your right. (just reverse all the things i said)

Ok thanks. Also, just wondering, how long did it take you to at least get everything down to the point where you could do one every now and then?

about a week of everyday trying it for like a half hour each night. hard to balance then get over back on to the bike.

Hmmmm... I see. What if you used a brake (I have a gyro)? Would that help with the balance?

Well i made some progress today (first time trying it) may major problem is pushing it hard enough to rotate all the way around. A few times i made grunting noises i pushed so hard and it only went about 320 degrees. I also have trouble because i have a tendensy to put my left foot down on the ground. Any tips?

well, it took me about a week before i got it, i used to do that too, i find that if u actually have a good speed its easier but nto too much or your back tire hits the ground when it gets to 180 degrees, and i try to actually move back and forth liek im actually trying to balance instead of just falling onto my other foot liek i did in the start.
