    Nice job! It's really cool that you can sidehop that high on a 24"!

      Rolling.
      I would first learn to walk a bit then the transition. Start along a railing, put your feet up there and start walking. Grab the rail if you have to. When you can walk for a ways w/ little or no touching the rail on either side (I'd go the full length of the longest I could find up to 100 ft), start at your support then walk away. When you can do that consistently for 20+ ft work on the transition.

      As far as I can tell everyone transitions from 1 foot riding (even if it's really quick ie as soon as a foot passes 6 o-clock, put it on the tire while the front foot continues to push down then move it behind the first foot that went on the tire.

      To get back to the pedals you have to look down a bit or use your perrifferal vision to see when the pedal comes around. Put your dominant foot on the front pedal leaving the other foot on the tire a bit until the other pedal comes around.

      Some find it easier on a 24 and some on a 20.

      Now that think about it Someone made a tutorial vid of it a while ago. Lets see if I can find it.

      Not the one I was thinking of, but this one is good.

      Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere. If you can ride where you are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the time do it along the way.- Bob Burnquist

          I learned wheel walk from a static mount with my pedal at 6oclock. But it then took me a while to learn how to transition into it from riding (you must ride slowly as you transition to the tire)

          And on that note, I finally landed the whole wheel walk today! I rode, moved into ww, then moved back to the pedals! It doesn't sound very exciting, but I had been having trouble with the transitions.

                      Its my first, and Im loving every second of it.

                      Also, while im already posting, today I got out to ride some more, and I can do a rolling mount with sucess about 80% of the time, so im feeling pretty good right now

                        Good going mate, i'll be catching up with ya soon

                        I very nearly managed what i think was a static mount a few times today....not sure of all the terminology but i had the left peddle a little way off the floor and leant on it and just jumped up into position.

                        What's the difference between static and rolling?

                          And in the end, you uploaded it and it was awesome! Inspired me to go try to catch flips earlier, I started catching them at the end, need to work on them though.

                              Static is starting with no motion, rolling is walking or running with your wheel, and then jumping on too it when the pedals are in a nice position.

                              And, I just got back from a 3 and a half mile ride on my coker, not bad for recieving the thing less than 24 hours ago

                              Also Juni, would I be correct in assuming you just got your first 36er?

                                Correct and i couldn't be happier!

                                I haven't done any great distance yet because of work but i've booked tomorrow off to try and do some distance

                                Good job on the ride today anyway, great feeling aint it!

                                May try a rolling mount tomorrow, see if it's any easier...
