Okay- most people call these peg wheelies these days- but at first they were always called dork wheelies because they were the 'stupid' way of doing wheelies...  Now, of course, there is a ton of tricks you can do into and out of dork wheelies...  so most people have accepted the change in name.  But I like the name 'dork' wheelies.   :o)

There is no trick that you MUST learn before dork wheelies- but it helps to be comfortable with your bike overall.  People think wheelies are easy-  They aren't.  Dork wheelies are no exception- in fact they can be worse than regular wheelies...  When you fall forward in a dork wheelie there is no way to pedal to get the front end back up in the air- you are going down.  So balance is the key to this trick.

There are several tricks that people do into and out of dork wheelies...  More typically people do tricks OUT of dork wheelies rather than into them.  Some people can actually do a rolling decade into a dork wheelie (Ross Smith) and some people can do rolling undertakers into them.   Mostly though people do tricks like dump trucks and time machines out of dork wheelies.

For fun you can put your right foot on the right rear peg and let go of the bars...   Actually push them down gently and bounce the front wheel off the ground then catch the handlebars again!  If the bars twist and you are going to fast you may crash really hard though- so be careful.

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