A TRICK HINT
ALL CURRENT HINTS
Welcome to one of the hardest old school tricks out there. Actually it is no
really that difficult to do, but learning it requires you to be willing to slam yourself
face first into concrete if you aren't careful. A G-turn has a very similar trick in
skateboarding and basically is a rock walk where you let go of the brakes halfway through
the first 180 and let your bike roll backwards on the front wheel. Here's how it is
- Travel at a medium speed riding normally... The faster you go on this trick the longer
you can get the G-turn to travel, but you don't want to be going to fast or you will loop
out and crash.
- Turn slightly to the left and then as you jerk the bike to the right grab the front
brakes just long enough to do a 180 on the front wheel while leaning WAY over the
handlebars. This is the key to the trick.
- You want to be so far over the handlebars that your momentum throws you backwards
without the back wheel coming down. You want to release the front brakes early enough
to keep your momentum. Kind of like a 180 rollback
only with your weight so far over the bars the front wheel is rolling backwards underneath
of you and trying to throw you face first into the concrete.
- Just like with squeakers you tap your brakes to keep
yourself from going over the bars. UNLIKE squeakers you don't grab your brakes you
FEATHER them. This means that you lightly touch the brakes on and off so that your
back wheel never gets close enough to the ground so that you fall backwards.
- Riding out of this is very easy if you can get the bike around. Since your feet
and hands are still where they should be on the bike all you do is either let the bike
fall backwards and pedal out or grab the brakes so that your back wheel comes down and
This trick takes weeks if not months usually to go more than a few feet on. It is
not one of the easier tricks and you should usually know things like rock walks, 180
rollbacks, and squeakers before attempting it. G-turns are also not very easy to
link tricks INTO... You can do things like decades,
bar flips, and other variations out of them but it takes lots of time to learn all of this.
