  • I feel like first walking on the bike (like sitting on the seat and walking) to understand and let your brain understand the unusual movement could be a faster way into learning this. I could be wrong this is still a fast time.

  • I'm thinking once you hit a certain speed you can just let go of the handlebars and do it free hand?

  • What you should have done was every 10 or so rides, you could ride a normal bike for 5 sets of whatever you were doing. Yes this would have made it even harder but you would develop the skills even stronger

  • People accuse Destin of faking when he couldn't ride the normal bike. I think the difference is Mike is a daily rider to begin with, and Destin probably went all 8 months and hardly touched a normal bike.

    Jo JoJo JoPirms 2 Mēnešiem
  • The reason he's failing is because his motor movements are so used to something else with feet and hands but if he just switch them by putting gloves on and new shoes it would help him so much more by adjusting himself and also if you're not a good bike rider in the beginning you're not going to be a good bike rider on this

    MrJollofMrJollofPirms 2 Mēnešiem
  • It's not the left is right and right is left and low speeds thats the hardest its the countersteering, at low speeds, if you wanna turn right you first turn a bit left then you turn right and vice versa, go and try just turning right,you subconsciously already know to go bit left then right, but pay attention and go turn straight right, your bike will go to the left and vice versa, its hard to explain.

  • Well here is the explanation. When he learned to ride it he only tried 5min. Every day for 8 months. He didnt learn quicker because 5min. And youre up to doing something else and you forget. Abd same with riding normal bike he didnt ride a normal bicycle in 8 months.

    David MurenDavid MurenPirms 2 Mēnešiem
  • i was thinking of making a bike like that, learning how to ride it, and using it as a bike between the station and my school. then I'm pretty sure nobody would steal my bike

    Extreme Pro TeamExtreme Pro TeamPirms 2 Mēnešiem
  • this kind of learning needs sleep. During sleep your brain actually does that new wiring. That's the reason of that "click" after 3-4 days. I also would love to see you doing a turn but I think you focused on riding straight. congrats tho

  • So I am twelve and I can do wheelies for blocks. I started by practicing every day for about 30 minutes and gradually got better I had it down but one day every thing clicked like what he said about the backwards bike and than I was wheeling Down my street no problem it’s weird how the brain adapts to different things in a similar way

  • does it ride like a motorcycle? so you push the right bar and you go right? and same for left bar?

    Meade HeliosMeade HeliosPirms 3 Mēnešiem
    • @Meade Helios How many different possibilities you think there is? Any normal bike: Push left, go left. Reverse steering bike: Push left, go... where?

      XtreeM FaiLXtreeM FaiLPirms Mēneša
    • @XtreeM FaiL i know. but if the steering was reversed like this bike how would it work? push left to go right instead?

      Meade HeliosMeade HeliosPirms Mēneša
    • @Meade Helios Steering a bicycle or a motorbike is no different.

      XtreeM FaiLXtreeM FaiLPirms Mēneša
    • @XtreeM FaiL i know this. i was asking if it would still use countersteering or would that reverse? counter steering is when you pushright handle, you go right even though tire turns left for a sec(with enough speed)

      Meade HeliosMeade HeliosPirms Mēneša
    • No it is not ride like a normal bikes. The steering is reversed.
