    I have just started to lean grinds and I was wondering what kind of
    obstacle other unicyclits have learned on. Im learning on a sketchy
    homemade grind box thats not very smooth. I also can not hop or pop out
    of my grinds. Any help would be aappreciated.

    I'll go ahead and resurrect this thread. :D I tried a grind today and
    I got some speed and hit the ledge and the uni stopped dead in its
    tracks and I went flying forward. I assume the surface of the object
    you are grinding on has something to do with it? This was a concrete
    bench. Should I find a metal one or a low rail?

    primo pedals work well for grinding.

    find a metal or plastic bench.

    concrete sucks unless it is sloped.

    when the uni stops dead in its tracks, it is beause either your tire is
    rubbing against the side of the ledge, or the concrete is to rough (most
    concrete is), or as stated you didn't lean back far enough.

    try removing the pins from one side of your pedal

    low rails are harder because if you hit them wrong, you'll get locked in
    (the rail slips in between the wheel and the crank). This is probably
    the worst thing you can do to your rim.
