Read/watch Twist of the Wrist...

[ame]http://www.amazon.com/Twist-Wrist-II-Keith-Code/dp/0965045072/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1344108856&sr=1-1&keywords=twist+of+the+wrist[/ame]

(I preferred the movie)

And sign up for a track school. :cheers

Without seeing your body position it is hard to tell you what to do or what not to do. Go to a track school where someone can follow you around and give you immediate pointers.

Your post makes me wonder if you're a troll, but here we go ...

Any good schools in your area? Pridmore's Star School is awesome:

Check out Nick's book. I think it's miles ahead of Twist of the Wrist:

Basically, you lean off the bike because you're standing the bike up to get it on the fatter part of the tire. Personally, I wouldn't be testing these skills and limits on the street, but that's just me. :D

Sorry to thread-jack but, What book are you referring to?

And OP, like others said. Slow down on the street. It's not the place to drag a knee.


Edit:

Sorry, I see the link now.
