I have been riding consistently for about the last two months or so and am trying to learn how to ride trials. Right now im riding my XC bike, which is a pretty good bike to learn basic stuff on, i guess. Anyway, I can do very basic stuff such as pivoting, pivoting in place for balance, hopping in place for balance, small sidehops, etc. In the last couple of weeks I have been trying to learn how to hop on my rear wheel and I am having some trouble. I can consistently get only 7-10 hops on my rear wheel and the most that I have done is about 15-16. My problem is that whenever I am on my rear wheel I have trouble hopping forward to gain my balance when I am falling forward. I can hop well to the back and to the left or right to regain balance but everytime the nose of the bike starts coming down I am screwed. Any help.
