If there is one trick that people expect you to know when you ride flatland it is the decade.  This trick is very similar to the boomerang except for one small detail- you are only on the back tire!

Q:  I can jump over the bike but I ALWAYS land beside it!  How do I get to the frame?

A:  Don't jump OVER the bike- Jump straight up and PULL the bike underneath you.   Since you are so much heavier than your bike (let's hope) when you jump OVER the bike it doesn't have the weight to pull you back.  If on the other hand you jump almost straight up and PULL the bike underneath of you then you will be positioned perfectly to land right on the frame.

How important are decades?  Buy a video and see how many people are doing them!   They not only link into tricks but show up in the end and in the middle of tricks.   You can do double decades, triples, quintuples (if your Chase G.).  You can do them to the pegs, or to the pedals.  You can do them without brakes (rollade) or from the pegs (peverted boomerang).  It is one of the biggest keystone tricks that you will ever learn.

If you have a question about this trick please feel free to e-mail it in...
