    Not yet. I'm working on it. I will learn how to glide.
    Who is the oldest person to learn how to glide and how old were they? I
    don't want to find myself setting a record. :)

    I can glide downhill quite well, but can almost never ride out of it.
    I can't really glide very much on flat ground, but I attribute that to
    the fact that I only have a trials uni.

  5. I can glide pretty good, and get back on the pedals, cept downhill at
    fast speeds I start to wobble....:rolleyes:

    I can glide on flat pretty good, I started lerning on a smooth tire but
    now I do it on a trials uni. I guess thats your problem, james. Learn it
    really good on flat with a smooth tire than switch to the trials I
    'spose...

    Also, Im VERY good at wearing down shoes.

    I guess i have to say i can..

    Working on gliding on flat ground, from one footed, and i'm really
    getting there!
    I'll have my nimbus X wheel and a primo-the wall tyre this week, to
    replace the last parts of my trainer, and that is the hub spokes nipples
    and rim..
    And then i'm going to reassemble my old trainer! WOHO! :D

    No.

    I can wheelwalk from riding and mount into wheelwalk, and am working on
    one-foot wheelwalk.

    Still can't ride out of either though.

    And I definitely can't glide.

    I know it isn't the same thing, but I can ride a bc wheel (almost)
    pretty good.

    Bc wheels are way easier than gliding. I can't even wheelwalk, though I
    try, yet it still only took me about five minutes to get the hang of the
    bc.

    If dolphins are so smart, then why do they live in igloos?

    I didn't say good, but I can go a little ways on it. I think the plates
    on mine are also a little lower that the ones on the bc wheels you can
    buy, which may make it easier to ride.

    My brother also tried it out today and it took him about just as long.
