      i got it today. my tips.
      1. do some rolling crankrabs, then jump off
      2. wax the SH*T out of a low bench
      3. roll up, lean foreward, jump
      4. do a crankgrab, bearing house and all
      5. you will proably fall
      6. do it again
      7. wait untill you stop grinding and come to a halt
      8. hop off
      9. you can grind

        If you can, go to a skate park. Find a ledge slightly going down. Ride up, jump and lean forward quite a bit. You will probably fall backwards the first few times, but you should have it with an hour.

          The whole leaning thing is something everyone should know for everything. You learn the hard way when snowboarding or skiing. Leaning is key for rails. Well, getting on the rail is key, ive saw a few people accidently ride their edge the whole way down an A frame rail. I need to find something to grind... I also need it to not be raining out, that would help a lot

            I think I would benefit from a tutorial on grinding large handrails...

                grabbing is a whole lot easier to learn than crankflips or uni-spins...

                  you cant really be taught how to hit big rails

                  step 1: find your rail

                  step 2: grow a pair

                  step 3: go till you get it

                    Well, there is a low round rail at a skatepark 20 min from my house. It is really long and steep (as long and steep as around... 15 stairs). Ive tried grinding from halfway down and I almost always fall. I think I may be doing something wrong.

                      I wish I had a rail like that at my skatepark.

                      Although, my skatepark is the best for learning. Because everything is cheap... Meaning everything is small.

                        Yeah... If you CAN grind and CAN jump high or far enough to hit the rail. Then you can do it. Practice pedal grabing high ledges if it freaks you out so much. If you can't jump high enough just jump out insted of up.

                          the best way to learn is by doing, thats what i did. Just do it, the kevin mcmullin style

                            Questions for you all:

                            Does it trash your bearing caps and cranks? Do you protect them with anything?

                            Do you use grind plates on metal pedals? Or plastic pedals and grind on either side until there's no grip left - then replace them?

                            Do you grind with the front foot or the back foot in your normal stance? Seems like I've seen both in various vids, but mostly back foot.

                            thanks.

                              I think most people use their front foot.



                              I'm now completely consistant on that one elementary school 5 stair rail. I think I would be scared to try one higher up though... I don't know. I can probably just try it uncommitingly for an hour and eventually be fed up and just go for it. That's what I did with the tiny 5 stair rail... (and my lateback down that 6 set)
