Hi all,
I just got my first trials bike yesterday. I have ridden mtb for a while and already have a few skills from that.eg 180 pivots ,wheelies, front wheel hops ,stoppies. I have never really been able to do the hop in back hops I can get into the position( front wheel in the air ) but I really struggle to hop. Does anybody have any tips? Thanks

try trackstand and rock the bike until you can hold on rear wheel standing position. hold it until you need to hop to retain balance...
