HOW TO WHEELIE A BIKE!!



How to Do a Wheelie

Want to impress your friends by doing a wheelie? A wheelie is a dramatic bike trick in which you bike with the front wheel in the air and the back wheel on the ground. Basically, it's biking on one wheel. Keep reading for instructions on doing a wheelie.

Steps

  1. Switch your gear to a very low gear, like 1-1, 1-2 or 1-3, where you can keep yourself moving forward, but very slowly.
  2. Get enough speed so that you can just barely balance.This allows you to go slower during your wheelie and maintain the wheelie longer, because it's a lot harder to ride a wheelie when you start out fast.
  3. As you are riding, the first thing to do is push down your handlebars and then pull up and backwards almost immediately so that you can basically "whip" yourself backwards.
  4. Get your pedals to about 11 o'clock and 5 o'clock, then push down on the 11 o'clock pedal and Pull back on the handlebars a bit, lifting your front wheel off the ground.
  5. Continue to pedal.
  6. Lean back (not too far) and pedal very hard.If you do it well, you will find yourself riding on the back wheel. When your center of gravity is over the rear wheel, you will reach the point where you can balance. Maintain that angle.
  7. Without increasing speed, keep constant pressure on the pedals.You will sense when your center of gravity shifts. Adjust pedal pressure accordingly. If your center of gravity goes too far, you will tip over backwards. When you sense this, decrease your pedal pressure.
  8. Also when you feel the need to go backwards, pull in the back brakes slightly.If you do end up going backwards and you can't save the wheelie, make sure you jump off the back of your bike so you don't fall on your Gluteus Maximus. Run with your bike until you can get back on.
  9. Do not press the front brake when landing, or you could fall forward.

    Yes, it just takes time to learn. As long as you want to put in the time, you can do it. It is rather time consuming to learn this trick.
    Thanks!

    Try smaller wheelies at first, and keep practicing. Once you're comfortable with your balance, try longer ones.
    Thanks!

    What is the best type of bicycle to do a wheelie on?

    Mountain bikes and BMX bikes are good; however, you can wheelie with nearly any bike as long as it's light enough.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Can I do a wheelie on a hybrid bike?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Possibly, but your wheels might pop. Hybrid bikes are usually designed for speed -- not tricks like a mountain bike or BMX bike.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How can I keep my wheelie going for the longest possible time?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Start out faster, and get more speed during the wheelie. Keep in mind it is going to be very hard.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What bike weight is the easiest to do wheelies with?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Really, you don't have to worry about bike weight unless the bike is more than 20% of your own weight. Another important point that I have found to help me is to keep your back straight; looking ahead into the distance aids this movement automatically. Also, keep those arms straight, really stretch them at the point at which you move your hips back and pivot your upper body backwards. These two movements help bring up the front wheel as well.
    Thanks!

    How can I get my bike to balance?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Find your balance point, which may be further back than you think, and pedal hard.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    When I lift the front wheel up, the bike goes sideways. How can I better control the movements?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You should either put your knee or foot out in the other direction, or move your handle bars to the opposite direction. Then you should be balancing forward again.

  • Don't do wheelies with clip-in pedals. If you fall backwards, you're toast.
  • Before you go and try it out, practice this so that you know what to do if you go too far backwards:
  • If you feel like you are falling back, take your legs off the pedals and place them on the ground for a safe landing.
  • If your on a gear bike, try the lowest gear setting, then attempt the higher gears one by one.
  • It takes a while to do a really good and impressive wheelie, so don't think it is easy stuff. When you do try these steps, try to twist them a bit and see if maybe doing it a little bit differently will do the trick.
  • You will need a lot of practice. Be safe.
  • If you're tipping to either the left or the right side, turn the handlebar in the opposite direction, all the way if necessary.
  • Keep your fingers on the brakes so that if you feel your weight is shifted too far backwards you can pull the back brake which will slam down the front wheel before you flip over backwards.
  • Experiment with sitting on the seat, standing in the pedals, raising and lowering the handlebars, and using different seat levels.
  • It is good to do wheelies on a flat road or up a small but not very steep rising ground (small hill on the road).
  • Don't forget to wear a helmet. Safety first!
  • Have a lightweight bike. Remove the front pegs from your bike for a lighter front end.
  • Unless you have plenty of spare inner tubes laying around, try not to slam your front wheel on the ground if you feel your going too far backwards.
