To do a dump truck you should first learn how to scuff and balance a stick-bitch. The dump truck is the name of the complete trick that is done when you ROLL into a stick-b.

The trick falls a little further down the list of difficulty because you have to combine many different tricks to even ride in- Wheelies, Coasting, Scuffing- They all combine to make this trick very difficult at the beginning to learn. After you learn the trick you will find that they are not to difficult to do and are very fun!

If you think this trick is tough to learn then you are just beginning to understand what flatland is all about! If it was FUN to learn then you've got the right idea. It is possible to do many different combinations into and out of the stick-b. Since the bike itself is in a pretty awkward position the tricks used to ride in and out are usually more difficult.

Keep in mind that you can use EITHER foot to scuff the back wheel if you want to, as well as it is possible to do the trick on either side of the bike, scuffing or even COASTING. Which makes it that much more linkable to other tricks. One of the coolest ways I have ever seen into this trick was a finger flip into it- That is, the person was riding with the bike in a dork wheelie, grabbed the head tube and spun the BIKE 360-degrees on the back wheel underneath of him and landed in a stick-b… WHOA!

Keep trying and don't get frustrated if it takes a while to learn!

 

FAQ: What the heck is scuffing?

A: Scuffing is the process of shuffling your foot along either the front or the back tire while the other tire is off of the ground to control the bike. You push forward with your foot to keep the bike rolling forward, then you draw your foot backwards up the tire to keep the bike from falling backwards. In a nutshell you are typically falling backward (right after a push) or you are falling forward (while drawing your foot back). You scuff zillions of tricks including freak squeaks, dump trucks, e-squeaks, elephant glides, and gerators.
