Wheel size expert
Don't take it to heart too much but some people just don't want to teach anyone, they might be a grumpy person or they want to hold onto their hero status in the group or you might not totally understand what they want to convey across to you because of the bike jargon they use.everyone i ride with is better than i am They don't know how to coach tho, so i get the same old 'just jump across and do it', 'just pedal backwards', 'just go faster'... or 'I don't know, i just do it'. I can't grind or hop up a curb sidways to save my life...but hopping across a flat line on the floor ??? You know i've got a foot of air and jump across about 8 inches. But i don't know how to translate it to hopping onto something. When i get to that point, i can't do it anymore. Same with spinning, i can stand and do 1s or 3s...but not on a bike..
I found the best way to learn is to video yourself and compare it to other peoples video and see what I'm doing differently to them. If you let it beat you in your mind, it normally does beat you in the end.
