    * Here are 10 types of mounts that I just thought of from the top of my
    * head. I'm sure that you're going to get more soon...
    *
    * 1) mount left foot
    * 2) mount right foot
    * 3) kick up
    * 4) side mount
    * 5) side mount with foot around twice
    * 6) jump mount
    * 7) side mount from standing on wheel
    * 8) reverse mount
    * 9) side jump mount
    * 10) free jump mount
    11) rolling mount
    12) rolling mount to one foot
    13) jump mount to one foot idle
    14) kick up to walk the wheel
    15) kick up to walk the wheel one footed
    16) kick up to spin
    17) side jump mount to walk the wheel
    18) side mount to seat out in front
    19) frog mount
    20) rolling jump mount to seat in back
    21) jump mount to seat in front
    22) pick up mount
    23) spin mount
    24) spin mount to one foot riding
    25) kick up with foot wrapped around frame
    26) 180 spin mount
    27) 360 spin mount
    28) side mount with foot around 3X

    All the above mounts I have done, tried or seen somebody do it. There is many
    more mounts that have no name and are almost impossible to do, and that even
    harder to describe. Most of the above mounts can be done with both feet, which
    would add to the length for the above list.
