So it is not the most exciting trick / move in the world, but a pretty important one nonetheless.

: Thank you, glad it wasn’t a RickRoll too

Basically if you can't track stand you're probably a dentist.
(May 6, 2019 at 11:28)
: This dentist can trackstand!

Fun game: you and some friends all line up. Draw a line about 10' in front of you. Last person to cross is the winner. No feet allowed to touch the ground and wheels are not allowed to leave the ground.

I think I'm just going to ride bikes, not stand them up all day...
(May 4, 2019 at 10:58)
Slow race! Fun on motorcycles too.
(May 4, 2019 at 13:48)
And no brakes.

We did this at my highscool in the mountainbike club back in the day... The game had to end as most of the kids who signed up lost within 20 seconds, after which myself and the other serious rider there didn't leave the line after a few minutes...

: You had a mountain bike club? I keep hearing about all this cool stuff in schools nowadays.
(May 4, 2019 at 19:43)
We did, but it wasn't as good as it sounds. The teachers who took it were very casual riders at best and we spent a lot of time riding on roads or local green cross country loops
(May 4, 2019 at 20:15)
: We had a club in my high school back in the mid 90s. We rode legit trails around Vancouver etc.

I can track stand forever. I’d trade that skill in a heartbeat to be able to manual a few rollers tho...

Duncan Shaw teaching you how to track stand is like Michael Schumacher teaching you how to parallel park.

a surprise to be sure but a welcome one

Just commute everywhere by bike. If you're even halfway in love with riding you'll practice this skill at every red light and become awesome at it in no time.

I’ve learned that if you go up to the intersection and track stand, maybe hop or rock a bit to make it look like your going to fall over, then a lot of times the cars will stop for you!

: I employ the same tactics when towing my trailer in heavy traffic. A couple random swerves and folks clear out. Makes lane changes a snap! Pro tip; crappy looking vintage trailers work best.
(May 5, 2019 at 12:32)
: yeah, get your super nice trailers custom painted to look junky!

Probably the best cycling skill I've learned in my 35 years of being a bike freak. If you want to up your cycling game both MTN and road this is the skill.

It's amazing how many people I ride with the complain about the Gap jumps but never even learned the basics such as a track stand. You got to be able to stand at the top on your pedals and compose yourself before you drop in. If you can't even stand still in the pedals how are you ever going to fly.

Ι can do them semi-consinstently but left foot forward only (I'm a regular). The tip that helped me a lot: Practicing on a gentle uphill makes it easier. Very usefull skill for clipped in riders on slow tech trails. It's nice to have a few moments to decide your next move without putting a foot down. Also second practicing at traffic lights, makes commuting interesting.

such a great skill to learn. I cant tell you how many times Ive been riding tight twisty steep tech and needed to trackstand to set up for the next section.
(May 4, 2019 at 12:56)
The only rider with the last name Shaw that is doing anything right there days.

" just stand there and do nothing..."

Vid doesnt work?
