Video: 7 Skills You Can Practice In A Parking Lot
@Woody25: Yeah, I started last year and kept a good pace for maybe a month, but then life came in and I had to drop it. As you said, muscle memory is the hardest skill to develop (at least for me). If you don't practice often the necessary fine movements ae quickly forgotten.

Video: 7 Skills You Can Practice In A Parking Lot
@rockhopper70: Well, if it's of any help, I've found manualling depends a lot on keeping your arms extended and pulling/pushing from the hips. Don't throw your chest back, start with a low saddle height, standing and with your weight centered on the bike. Then, lower your hips vertically and just before hitting the saddle with your bum, throw it towards the back if the bike, almost drawing an L with your hips. Again, don't use your chest, use your hips!!! The front wheel should be off the ground now. And you keep it in the air by pumping back and forth with your hips. A tip which seems to work for me is to never touch the front brake. As long as the front wheel is spinning, I'm able to keep manualling. As soon as it stops, it gets harder. But as Aaron Chase says in Tricktionary, "sometimes you can manual all day, other days you can't lift your front wheel off the ground for the life of it!".

TBH I envy you. I can manual pretty decently, but I can't wheelie more than a couple meters without falling to either side. I've even taken Ryan Leech's excellent wheelie course, but I still suck. I guess you're either born with it, or you're not

@kcy4130: you'd be surprised by how many mid-pack triathletes down here, on a third world country, sport those those voodoo talismans they sell as derailleur cages.

@jomacba: "brilliant" isn't exactly an adjective I would think of when simultaneously thinking of this contraption. If anything they could have simplified it a lot merely by moving the "geared" part at the cranks instead of the rear wheel. Also, synchronization is a PITA on all accounts with that disposition.
