Is it harder to manual a 29er?
29er’s have tons of bottom bracket drop (like 30+ mm’s). Having your weight so far below the axles is the main reason they are more difficult to manual than a bike with 26″ or 27.5″ wheels. That increased BB drop is also the reason 29er’s can feel so stable in many riding situations.
Is it easier to wheelie or manual?
Manuals are easier on a slight downhill, wheelies are easier on a slight uphill and the balance point thing is complimentary for both. Don’t think either is easiest personally – they both need the right technique but then just practice practice.
Should my feet touch the ground on a mountain bike?
The height of your saddle is important for the most comfortable position and safe riding style. When you sit on the saddle, both feet should reach the floor and the balls of your feet should be touching the ground.
Should the saddle be higher than the handlebars?
As a general rule of thumb, you want the top of the handlebar about as high (or higher than) the saddle, unless you’re a sporty rider looking to ride fast. Try touching your elbow to the nose of the saddle and reaching forward towards the handlebar with your hand.
How do you start a manual bike?

How do you manually full suspension a bike?
- Preload: The preload part is pretty straightforward. You push your weight down into the bike to preload the suspension.
- Punch: As soon as you’re low over the seat, it’s time for the punch. As quick as you can, push your feet and arms forward and throw your weight back.
