Man, wish my dad bought me an Ibis mojo! You adopting?my kid has a birthday coming up. he likes to do this stuff on his old bike. I want to get him a mtn bike so he can do what he likes on trails, not only on the street. i ride trails so it would be a plus for me as well to watch him progress.
It is no more difficult to 'pop' the wheelie on FS vs HT, in my opinion. It is, however, helpful if the rear isn't set in the soft setting.I'm no good at wheelies- I can get the wheel up but chicken about the balance point. So instead of joining the BMX chorus, I'll ask a question. A FS is definitely harder to pop into a wheelie. But, once the wheel is up, is it harder or easier? I see these videos of people manualing through whoops and it looks like it would be a lot more difficult on a hardtail.
