a thing of grave importance....Spirito di Finocchio

i have forgotten how to wheelie!!!

have tried the last few times on my fixed but to no avail and i feel its very sad as i was a king wheelie kid at the school bike shed. next time on the fixed i shall try and easier gear instead of the 16 tooth - maybe a 20 tooth. i also think that if i lowere the set post and slide the seat as far back as it will go it will be more conducive to popping that front wheel. any other ideas?

i can lift the front but cant maintain it longer than 10 yards - im determined to get at least 30! and am trying on my fixed as i have 36 spokes to come down on rather than 14. please help. my life will immeasurably be of better quality.

it means a lot to me
