The forward rope-a-roni is tough to learn. Once you learn how to do them then new doors will be opened as far as linking tricks into and out of them. Of course you can start working at an entirely different level when you have this trick wired. Darksides, swtch-b's, megaspins, forward time machines, and more can all be pulled directly from forward rope's.

Whiplashes and Smoothies are both HIGHLY recommended tricks to know before trying this.

 

NOTE: This is another one of those tricks where you can actually push yourself along in the forward rope-a-roni position and learn how to coast the trick before learning to ride in or out.

Also note: Riding into forward rope-a-ronis is perhaps the most difficult part of the trick. You have to be travelling fast enough that you don't lose your momentum when you ride in. You have to tap the brakes and lift the front wheel late enough that you are centered over the back wheel. If you hit the brakes to early then you will tap your foot on the ground. If you hit the brakes to late... well the bike will have come under you to far and you will be crashing... This is a tough crash to escape from... Plan on getting some cuts when learning this trick and don't be afraid to let the bike go if it is falling. Parts come by a lot cheaper then bones!
