How To Manual

Date Oct 19, 2016

We know that if you can’t already do it you’d like to be able to. But even if you can’t ahem, keep it up, the manual is a useful skill on the trail as demonstrated by this video from our friends at MBR Magazine.

Can you do it? Want to do it better?

For manuals and catwalks I always tell people to practice on a soft grassy field with a back brace or a back pack with a pillow and no hard things and don't be afraid to loop backwards. That way people can get to know the tipping point of their bike in a relatively safe way. Using flats is a good way to eject safer.

I guess the more accurate title of "Beginners guide for how to lean back and hold a manual just long enough not to go over the bars on a drop" was too long.

For a proper sustained manual I've found visualizing sitting on the back hub helpful.
