I've been trying to improve my manual technique. I ride a Hakka MX and want to get better at manuals so I can better negotiate drops and whatnot on MTB trails.
I'm having a hard time getting the front wheel up enough without also giving some power through the pedals. And then it's a wheelie, not a manual.
I'm wondering, is this a consequence of the geometry of the bike compared to a typical MTB? (No dropper post, lower stack, longer reach...) Or just a consequence of my technique?
