Heaps useful skill - even when riding in the city for popping up on curbs.
I saw a guy doing this very thing for about 200m down Hindley St yesterday.
Dont try that with your new Lightweight wheels.
Oh, I was just about to pop out on my Cevelo, and give it a go ! :)
Nope, still can't do a wheelie on my bike. It can be done on a longtail
but my bikes even longer...
another good one is the track stand.
bunny hop get my vote.
I have hoped over wash outs at the bottom of a downhill more than once.
All these tricks teach balance and control that ate useful things to practice
