Hey, have you found a confidence inspiring way to mount your uni uphill yet?

I have had that exact problem with my freewheel free mounts. I'm doing basically the same thing that was explained here (video in "Adventures in Freewheeling" topic). But even very slight uphills are very hard for some reason.

How about hopping, can you do that with your brake locked? That would allow mounting sideways and turning uphill after.. I must try that next time I'm training.

I can't mount uphill either, but I've thought about the same as you: hopping with vertical cranks and the brake locked. Right now I'm not freewheeling because of snow and ice, but when I get my studded 26'er freewheel I will.

Ok, sounds great! It is weird how much less aware you are about the available grip level with a freewheel. When riding a fixed wheel it is an instant instinct to jump of when you start slipping. With a freewheel at least I have more than once noticed that the tire has slipped when starting to accelerate, but that realization has struck only after the situation. Probably the lack of feedback through pedals causes that. Kinda scary.
