I've spent about 15-30 minutes a day for the last week trying to do a non-rolling mount on my little toy 5-footer. I've still got a long way to go, but at least I can get a solid foot on the first pedal about 50% of the time, but I've only successfully got my butt on the seat and my foot solidly on the second pedal about twice. I wish I could learn it in an hour like Idyl -- lucky!

I've been practicing on grass for safety so I'll have a softer landing if I fall. 18 months ago when I first got my giraffe, I fell on cement trying to free mount and hurt my hand. So I'm a little gunshy, which is also probably making my jumps more tentative.

I'm tempted to try practicing the rolling mount, since it sounds like it takes less time to learn.
