Hope to see you guys pulling this move off soon and let me know if you have any questions.
Also don't forget to check my website out at rlosborn.com. We have some cool merch going up on there soon along with a lot of other cool stuff.
Alright so we are back here for our next how to video. Do you want the sun in my eyes? It's better than being in my eyes. All right so what is the name of the trick or what is the trick we are doing today? Well I don't know technically, well it is a 180 into a roll back into a reverse slide. Power drag. Let's call it a power drag. You've got me so worried about doing everything just right I am like, so it is going to be a 180 roll back into a front wheel slide. Okay, cool and we are doing it on the S&M today. Yep still riding my S&M ATF. 20 in, 20 in. Looks great yeah of course it looks great. I mean I just love to see welds. Really nice TIG welds like that, no paint covering them up, and you see the burn marks and stuff. I love that. And I am running Odyssey Forks.
So before we get into it I just want to show them really quick the t-shirt, we got our t-shirts in and we are getting them up on the site. He's got his breakfast, whoops last night's dinner is still here. Yeah this is Bill look back t, let me show them the back real quick. Basically it. Yeah so we are just waiting on our we're shipping supplies and packaging to get in and then these will be up on the site. So we've got, so we've been talking with Mike Buff and Todd Lyons, and they are going to be hooking us up with some fat Rippers. Yeah I am getting a Mike Buff fat Ripper, there's the word on the street anyways.
And Dylan is getting a fat quad, Patrick too and Patrick is getting a fat quad. Todd has been really cool about it and it's funny because I actually used to sponsor Todd when he was racing, doing backflips in the middle of his race. And he is still a nut man who sends me all these videos of him riding, he tries some pretty gnarly jumps on those fat bikes.
Okay so there is going to be two ways into this. The main part of this is going to be the rolling backwards. Now if you are a beginner or intermediate you may not want to learn this just because you think it's really hard. It's not any harder than anything else, it is just a matter of it getting on your bike and learning how to ride backwards. Which will be like this right here has a slight down slope so I am going downhill. So I have to do to start out is just learn to move your front wheel. Drag your feet, move your front wheel and this is the ticket. Your brain doesn't understand the backwards, everything is backwards kind of thing.
But if you just start moving your bars, I mean randomly move your bars, your brain will go okay I get it. It's like driving a forklift, when the wheels are turning in the back. Your brain just picks up on it after a while but you got to turn a little bit so we can adjust. Anyways, go down a hill and just slowly lift your feet and learn how to move. And then you can do it on your pegs if you want. I like doing it on my pedals but a freecoaster is a big Advantage. But that is, that is a super old trick, way back when I was riding with Bob Haro and Ronnie Wilton, with Bob Haro in fact. And it is a really good move because it goes into so many things and it will combo you into so many things.
There are two ways to get into it, when you are learning in your just beginning, come in I'm going to do this again it's just like the rock Walk. This is straight, we are going to come in I don't know how many degrees that is but it is like half of a what 90, so half of a 90 so let's say 45 degrees. Then you come in, do your 180, this part is critical. Push your back end down. Okay get used to pushing your backend down. It's like you're telling your bike I'm going straight, if you come in all weird and everything and you don't have that back momentum you're going to go about 2 in.
So this is one way on the brakes, push back, another way into it is no breaks which I like to do because you kind of lift up and you start to get a little roll. And I always keep my fingers on my brakes in case I go over like into G turn or something. And once you start rolling backwards, I lock my legs against my seat so my feet don't move into my pedals don't catch and start rolling backwards. By locking your feet, it is hard to do because both knees on the inside will be locked against my seat. It keeps the bike from being like this, it just Stables it up and I lean back. When you lean back it just makes it easier to steer.
