How to Manual a Mtb

A Manual is a technique in which we manually lift the front wheel and roll along the rear wheel without pedalling. Manuals are useful in every sort of riding like street, trial,4X,mountain.


  1. 1
    Start by rolling along in medium pace(you should not be slow as balancing becomes difficult in slow speeds)
  2. 2
    Shift your body weight in front of the bike gently. Don't do it aggressively; as it is only used to create forward momentum.
  3. 3
    And in fluidity shift your body weight at the rear of the bike and gently pull on the handlebars.
  4. 4
    When you are on the rear wheel try to find the balance point using your brakes and legs.
  5. 5
    When you feel you are going too high you could just bend your knees a little bit or tap the rear brake gently.
  6. 6
    When you feel you are going too forwards, immediately straighten your legs and pull on the handle bars until you reach the balance point.
  7. 7
    Adjust your sideways balance by using your knees and handle bars (if you are going to the right side stick your left knee out and turn your handle bars to left and vice versa).


  • Slightly bend your knees.
  • Put a finger on the rear brake this will keep you from falling on your butt.
  • Keep your arms straight.
  • Try to maintain your speed by using less brakes and more knees.
  • Put your front part of your feet on pedals so that you can shift your weight more backwards


  • Don't go too fast otherwise you will flip.
  • Find a vast empty place so that you don't run on anything.
