    oh and always remember, while youre riding put as much weight on the saddle as possible.
    while im riding along or doing standstills, im literally almost pulling up on my legs to get that weight on the saddle (not taking them off the pedals, but putting as little weight on the pedals as possible.



    i think focusing all your weight on the saddle is the most important part though

    but youll eventually want to learn to do standstills standing up as well. for now, focus on putting weight on the saddle

    i look about 2 ft in front of me, at the skinny.

    just keep practicing, my skinny riding was very inconsistent when i first started. id really only be able to mount and ride 1 out of 10 times, the other 9 times id mount and have to fall off to whichever side i fell to.

    You're welcome, thank you for sharing! You are an inspiration as well, I hope to be doing some more fun things on 1 wheel in the coming months!

    If you're just doing pedal you'll have to pull up on the seat a little, not very hard, to keep the cranks level. And you only need a couple inches rolling hop if you can find a low enough ledge, just high enough where your tire doesn't drag when you're in a stall.

    Yeah, I'm doing a grind in that picture. Personally I grind on only my pedal cause I think it feels better, but on a ledge like the one in my picture you can do both crank and pedal if you like. I think it was easier to learn with crank and pedal. You just have to be careful when you start grinding on rails to do only pedal, or the crank can easily slip and your unicycle will get stuck. You need to keep standing after you hop on the ledge, and lean over the foot you're grinding with. The key to grinding is the lean, make sure you're fully committing and leaning over whatever you're grinding on to go down the full length and slide of the edge. Hope that helps! Feel free to ask me if you need any more tips.

    Hahahaha my main tip is to just keep your chin up and never give up!! You'll land any trick if you really want it!

    No problem dude, I think you'll see a huge improvement with more grip on your cranks. And thanks!
