Words from Tom and Tony Nov 13, 2009

Tom and Tony, the dynamic duo of the fixed gear world, will start contributing weekly posts. It’s a special time each week where the two knuckleheads can show their sense of humors via Prolly is not Probably. Without further adieu, here they are.

Since Tom and I have been able to get a lot out the fixed gear community we would like to give back to it in some way. We’re willing to bet that a lot of frequenters Sir Probably’s have seen this video, but we feel it is a great tutorial to learning how to wheelie.

A self proclaimed “fixie newb” systematically breaks down the mechanics of the wheelie into a clear and concise list.

1. Raise your seat to find your balance point.

2. Pop it up with your most comfortable foot which may be your left or right or other foot. There is no need to worry about trying too hard because the front end comes up automatically.

3. Get into the “Go Point”

4. Balance that shit.

5. Wheelie all the way into a tardy mark in homeroom.

This was a great tutorial, but the only addendum we would make is to arrive at school on time. Sick wheelies won’t pay the bills.
