Default double cans and indian airs

     

are they as easy as they look? it seems to be a simple trick.

also, the Heel clicker- how does it compare in "hardness" to a double can or indian air (no seat grab) because without trying, they are almost natural. i noticed this in the dunes a couple months ago.

to be honest, i think the No hander is harder than the Heel clicker but thats just me :

any of you guys out there doing these tricks?

Rob

Physically, the no hander is easier than the heal clicker. . .but mentally, it's the opposite. Something about letting go and not having control, seems to bother most people.

yep, that's what i meant. but while i can do no handers (and variations like fender grabs and clapping behind your back, etc) a heel click just 'flows' better.

I just started doing tricks and I know that doing a no hander feels like you have no control and your landing is going to be your last. I have not done a no hander but i have done a superman. thats like wierd.

No handers are tough if your steering head turns real easy like mine does. As soon as I let go...it will try to flop to one side or the other. I got to reach down and snatch 'em real quick. Right, Faded...no control...scary...and FUN!

pinch the seat with your knees and no handers are over rated, I learned them on a BMX bike and that was scary but once on a dirbike it was easy and you can throw them suicide or just straight up and soon you can land with no hands but be ready for the times you mess up but the dirt tastes the same. Also supermans are easier on a dirtbike because its heavier but it still requires some air for a good stretch, I think its easier to learn tricks on step ups cause the bike is with u more, especially when throwing a nothing.

i've done a no footer to no hander lander a few times... i understand the "not in control" feeling : especially when i do it in the dunes and the front kinda knifes in and flops around

i tried a no hander at BMX before, and lets just say that Studley Junior wasnt happy : stupidly, i figured it would be 'safer' to try tricks off of a smaller jump... well, no time to do the trick then pull it back in in time to land. now i just stick to in-control tricks like 360s and Xups

as for the dirt bike, i didnt get to go riding like i wanted to but hopefully i can go either tomorrow or the next day, and i'll see if i can find a semi-large but forgiving jump to throw a double can on.

double can? you mean nofooted can can, that trick gets intresting if you cant get your leg back over the seat. I suggest a big sand step up for learning tricks.

ive never tried a heel clicker in the air but i can do them while ridin around and its easier than the no handers. I tried a one hander in the air and almost endoed over. i like havin my hands on the bars so i can move the bike around in the air.
