hey guys whats up! my name is Lukas Knopf and today I am going to show you 10 simple MTB Tricks! as I already mentioned in the intro its all about 10 Mtb tricks today therefore I am using my rose bikes soul fire free ride bike and my rose the bruce hardtail dirt jump bike BUT the tricks I am showing you are also possible on a Downhill bike, enduro bike, Slopestyle, bmx bike, whatever you choose to ride basically you can do all the tricks on every bike. if you guys want to show me pictures and videos of your tricks you can tag me on instagram using the hashtag #lukasknopfbasics and tag me with @lukasknopf than I can take a look and might be able to give you some more advice aswell! maybe you as a community can also help each other aswell! lets start with trick 1 – the drop! you guys will find drops in bike parks, but also when you are riding street (gaps, stair gaps and so on) but also when you are riding skatepark you will find similar obstacles where you can use this technique everywhere tip 1: take a look at the gap before you ride it so you know how you have to jump then you will get an idea of the dimensions of the whole drop then you should approach the drop with moderate speed and a lot of guys make the mistake that they wont pop or anything, they would just ride of the drop I would recommend to pop the front wheel first, so the back wheel leaves the drop last but don’t do a high bunnyhop, just the bunnyhop motion the front wheel leaves the drop first then the back wheel you wont get nose dive than and you will land with both wheels or even with the back wheel first and the frontwheel last for an even smoother landing you have just learned the drop! such a drop batterie helps a lot for learning! you can start of with a smaller drop and then go up to the next higher on and then to the biggest one also good for practicing: the pavement trick 2 might be the biggest enemy of bike parks – its the Berm Roost! just find a nice berm, hit it with full speed, take off your foot and pull the brake hard, roosting some dirt its actually not that hard and the videos and pictures will look so dope, when everything is covered in dust i would recommend to hit the berm a bit faster than average, put your finger already onto the brake lever than cut the berm a bit, so go in a bit later put your one foot down, and let your back wheel get carried away, weight stays stable over the bike do a sick roost, get your foot back on the pedal and rider away the pump track behind me is just perfect for trick number 3 its the so called Manual Surfer! you should already be able to manual so manual: riding on your back wheel without pedaling its also a good way of gaining more speed you have to pop your front wheel up then your weight will go over the back wheel/seat your arms and your legs are bent and then you will use your arms and legs to weigh out the bike oh and your finger is on the brake to save you from falling to the back you will try to stop your front wheel from falling down with this motion until you might run out of speed on these bumps you will just get popped in the manual position and then you will try to surf all of those the 4th trick I am going to show you on this table is the suicide no hand you have to jump a table like this, clamp your knees onto your seat, stay upright above the bike, get your hands off and stretch them like this your chin or your upper body should stay above the stem so your main weight is still above the bike swing your arms to the back and get them back on before the landing its definitely an advanced trick where I would recommend to start carefully with hit a jump, just clamp your knees, so you know the feeling then in the next try open your hands, then take them off more and more and more later on you can put your body weight more to the back and stretch them out faaaar to the back if you are afraid maybe learn them onto a flyout first and then hit a real jump if you guys liked the sui no hand you will like trick 5 aswell its the so called seat bounce no hand so when jumping of the lip you will get bounced from your seat and then you will take your hands off I would recommend to learn the seat bounce first just sit on your seat a couple meters before you approach the take off get carried over the jump from the lip you dont have to do anything else as if you would hit a jump normally same position above the bike it will just feel a bit more weird at first because you wont stand upright but sitting on the seat if this works out fine, stay with your chin above the stem to keep the weight above the bike take your hands off, back on ride away, you have made trick number 5 i am going to show you trick number 6 on the hardtail. its the footplant or fast plant you take your foot of the pedal and step onto the table push your bike like this and land again simple as this, not much to explain except that I have the left foot forward and also take off the left one and i euro table my bike like this that gives you a bit more control and looks even more stylish maybe try out in the flat first and then advance it to a table or a speed bump trick 7, the big bike bar spin, the crank flip your crank will flip 360 backwards I already explained the crank flip in a different video, but in the bunny hop I would recommend to try it out before while riding the bike or even in the bunnyhop than it will be more safe to do it on a jump than and you guys have to be able to jump a table aswell thats how you do it while riding and while bunny hopping some more tips on how to do it this is the position you have to have on your bike keep yourself upright to kick your cranks backwards you have to lift your foot up like this, pull your toes down and then you can give em the spin with this motion you give them the perfect spin they will spin 360 and you have to catch em like this you guys really have to figure out this one point where you spin but then its super easy trick 8 is just right fo bike park use, but also in skate or dirt park table jumps, banks i am talking about the nosebonk you just have to bonk with your nose on a table top the bonk stands for a small hit with the front wheel jump the table and hit it with your front wheel for a split second pop yourself back up and land you have to be s bit more advanced while jumping while jumping, push your handle bars down, your front wheel included and then when you bonked pull the bars back up and do like a bunnyhop so you get back in the landing now lets get to the most requested trick the motowhip just looks so stylish first advice: go to a jump you love and get along with then you have to decide which side you want to do the whip do a couple of test jumps and simply try out which one suits you more for me its the right side front wheel goes to the right, back wheel to the left my left foot is in the front maybe this tip will help some of you if you stand right foot forward: front wheel to the left, back wheel to the right also: try the whip like this on flat ground so you get the motion of the trick take your bar, twist it to one side catch up with the back of your bike, keep your look straight twist your hips look straight forward and bring it back: twist your bars back forward and spot the landing hip goes back aswell, spot the landing it will take you a lot of tries for sure so go out there and just have fun with it! we are now approaching the last trick its the ninja drop! you guys jump off the bike, grab the seat and jump jump off the bike, grab the seat throw it in the centre in front of you in the same motion you have to jump of the ground with your back foot the foot who stands towards the bike will go above it jump over the bike, catch the pedals and the handlebar again you have to have ninja skills to do it for sure I would recommend to practice it on flat ground or from a smaller obstacle like this and then advance the trick to bigger ones hope you guys have fun learning the tricks!
