Want a wheelie trainer? We got build questions from our last post so had @danielryan_mtb go through how he built his. You’ll need -10ft of 2”x6” -12ft of 2”x4” -2” screws -Drill -Saw -2’ Strap *edit from questions* The rear support height is 18.5” on this one. The height can vary based on wheel size. You want it higher than your rear hub but low enough you won’t hit your butt. Stay safe! Have any other quarantine projects? Let us know what they are. Ride when you can and responsibly. We’ll get through this together!

Surprise, I like to jump rope. I started jump roping in elementary school & in 5th grade traveled on our school’s performing jump rope team, the Ropin’ Wranglers promoting healthy lifestyles. Classic Wyoming name. Since then it’s been a go to work out for me to turn on some tunes and jump around for 30 mins. . . . During the last month, I figured I’d share more since it seems to be entertaining to some of you (and me ?). ??@jeremylato and I made this video for our artistic outlet last week. He filmed, I jumped and edited. . . . All you can do is try your best! If you want to see some how-to video tutorials let me know!
