that thing sucks. I tried it any it was way easier than doing a real wheelie. It is like doing a wheelie on a perfectly smooth road, wth no wind, no pot holes, and you cant learn how to manuver left to right.

I would like to try that just for the hell of it, but it does look way easier than a real wheelie. No side to side action, or wind.

It's a device that holds a bike by the swingarm through the axel. The rear wheel sits on a drum like a dyno, this allows you to pull up a wheelie and ride it as you would need to do on the road. It should help lear throttle control and finding bp.

until the p.o.s breaks and you go flying lol.



I doubt it would break honestly, I'm sure their lawyers told them they would be in a world of shit if they didnt make it pretty tough, but still, I would laugh till I cried if I ever saw a squid video where one broke loose.

Not to mention it costs more than just buying a stunt bike and learning yourself in a parking lot.

17 thousand? lol.

not saying buy one but take a few runs on one and enjoy it. Just get used to bp and what speeds/throttle you need to clutch it up in each gear.

I've learned a valuable lesson from wrecking twice while doing stunts. It's just better to stick with bicycles, and you get an actual work out too.

I got 6 petals today doing a wheelie on the bike. Damn, its hard to keep doing a wheelie with so much surge of power for each stroke.
