 Wyn manages to make a 12 minute best of Wheelie Wednesday video and Redbull can only do a 3 minute best of world cup video lol.

 Wheelies vs. ride down a hill. Hmmm, yeah I wonder what's more entertaining. :/

 I couldn't care any less about back flips, front flips or other crazier aerial tricks I just want to ride a wheelie like this guy!
  • + 37
 This just made me angry... he's faster on one wheel than I am on two! LOL!
  • + 25
 Less friction
  • + 6
 @RedBurn: I thought friction doesn't depend on surface area though?
  • + 6
 @Joebohobo: true, all his bodyweigjt is on one wheel so total friction tire-soil is the same than on the 2 wheels
  • + 20
 @Joebohobo: It was a funny comment until you decided to deconstruct it...
  • + 6
 @KeithReeder: as a futur enginneer i couldn't do anything but admitting he was correct hahaha... i ll think 2 times before another comment about friction Big Grin

 @KeithReeder: lol no shit huh

 @RedBurn: it's not that simple when it comes to tyres made of rubber
  • + 6
 Hell, even the kid at 1:26 wheelies better than me.
  • + 11
 @adam102: 1:26 ain't dead...

 This is wheelie good.

 common, that was a wheelie bad pun

 Just when you thought you were getting good at wheelies then this comes out.
  • + 10
 He's the only person on the planet who's center of gravity is located outside of his body. I saw him dropping the Corkscrew at Sea Otter and it blew my mind. So inspirational. Thanks Mr. Masters.

 I saw him at Sea Otter as well, obviously really good at what he does....but riding through the booths and crowds on one wheel was dangerous, there were many little kids wandering around in addition to 70yr plus folks who could easily break a hip if he whacked them. One top of it he was doing it with no helmet.

 Wyn you are a marketing dream machine your name is wyn and you can wheelie for ten minutes, interview people with sausage's,beer bottles,ketchup bottles ,roll on world cups and your track walks and after race analysis lol?
  • + 10
 Please someone tell me where it is that GT frames have this lock out wheelie position, it´s keeping me up at nights, and I can´t seem to find it. Must have been lying when he says he runs stock frames.

 I'm a horrible bike rider.

 His helmet/chest cam from the train of riders going down A Line at Crankworx last year, them boosting and him all the while manualing at MACH CHICKEN just absolutely blew my mind.

Anyone who's ridden A Line has got to watch that clip (may have only been on the live feed) but just absurd he could do it down that run.
  • + 5
 yea i was in that train, hes nuts!
  • + 3
 @goytay: Thank you. The whole time I'm watching the footage, I'm just screaming "holy s***" when he's landing the tranny's of those monsters at full speed back wheel all the way.
  • + 5
 @bizutch: Yep anything less, and he wouldn't be Wyn-ning.
  • + 2
 @goytay: He's wheely good-u could lean so far as to say he has mastered it.

 I hate waking up in the morning after manualing-dreams realising that I'm not Wyn Masters.
  • + 4
 Haha, since I'm trying to master manuals I often do that dream too! So frustrating to wake up.
  • + 3
 I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has manual-dreams!
  • + 1
 I can't be the only one that gets on a bike afterwards to see if it was true right?
No? Ok
  • + 10
 Still can't grasp the concept of the no hander wheelie?
  • + 4
 Okay that's it i'm going out for some wheelies!
  • + 6
 It's easy, you bungee cord your nuts to the seat
  • + 5
 Sticky crotch.
  • + 6
 He wheelied more than I rode altogether in 2016. Sad.
  • + 3
 He's been doing weelies and manuals better than most of us his whole riding life, he'd pop outta skate park bowls and stem hump manual the whole park 3 times before running out of momentum... He's a rear wheel Jedi ninja!
  • + 3
 At 2:11, that's a Wyn Wheelie Whip!

Wyn might be the only person in the world who I believe could wheelie on a freakin' unicycle!
  • + 5
 This guy just makes ya want to ride a bike.
  • + 4
 It's official.... I can't wheelie! Loads of awesome riding there.
  • + 3
 I couldn't land half those things even with two wheels. Not sure if that makes me 1/4 as good as him or 4x shittier.
  • + 4
 *roadies don't have bike handling skills. Min 5:58 Nicolò Bonifazio

 So sick! He even manualed down the famous corkscrew at the Laguna Seca race track!
  • + 4
 Tried this last week! new rear wheel on its way Frown
  • + 2
 wow. thats impressive....i cant figure out how he maintains enough traction on one wheel at such crazy speeds to make the turns on the dh tracks.
  • + 3
 Gotta camp out at Sea Otter next year Wyn...
  • + 4
 I would if i was there but its too close to first world cup maybe 2018
  • + 1
 No shitz! I grew up there watching motorsports and while I've ridden the infamous Corkscrew, I've never seen a wheelie down it! I know that campers skate it at night tho!! I did watch Wyn do his thing in the so expo last year - with a beer in hand - rad.
  • + 2
 Well that was humbling. He is a hundred times smoother on one wheel than I am on two.
  • + 2
 Can someone explain to me how it is possible to make a wheelie without hands? Thanks
  • + 6
 Wheelie, really get your balance point on, hold to the bike with your legs, take off one hand, then the other, and fall down. At least that's my technique
  • + 1
 Seat angle is the key. And talent, of course...
  • + 3
 "Wyn Wheelie Masters" A name well deserved.

 This is sick.

 Manuals never get old...mine are no where near Wyn's...but fucking-a if they aren't fun regardless

 Great footage - great skill!
