How to wheelie

How to Pop a Wheelie



STEP 1: Practice on a flat road, trail or grassy field.

STEP 2: Take your feet out of your toe clips or clipless pedals to practice the wheelie. This way you can quickly put a foot down if you wheelie too far backward.

STEP 3: Shift to one of your middle gears and start pedaling slowly.

STEP 4: Crank down hard on one pedal and shift your body weight back on your seat.

STEP 5: Pull back on the handlebars while your weight is shifted back, and watch your front wheel rise in the air. The more you lean back on your seat, the higher you'll be able to wheelie.

STEP 6: Lean forward on your bike and push the handlebars down to get your front wheel back on the ground.

STEP 7: Wheelie up and over an obstacle by gaining some speed, wheeling your front tire on top of the obstacle, and then shifting your weight forward to bring the back wheel on top of the obstacle.
