    I think I might have it, but I'm nt sure if I'm doing it right...
    Since I can't put just one foot on the pedal without the uni going
    flying, I put the heel of my back foot on the pedal, and the ball/toe
    onto the top of the crank (where the crank attaches to the wheel).
    Is this right, or is it "cheating"?

    aw man...
    lol thanks
    I did my first trials line today...it's totally noobish and
    sucky...it's like 6 10"x10" blocks about a foot away from each other,
    randomly (meaning I don't really jump the same way twice), and then, at
    the end, it's a 12 inch jump up to a platform, then down a skateboard
    ramp..
    I'm so proud

    This is commonly called the "rollback mount" and usually starts out with
    the first pedal all the way down, so there is no need to make use of
    the side of the crank.

    Uhm...what?
    Maybe I'm just ignorant/stupid, but I don't think you get what I'm
    saying...
    What I did was nowhere near a rollback mount...

    I think you are talking about a side mount, only instead of having the
    pedal down, -the cranks are horiztonal-.

    Here are some videos of side mounts and variations:

    'Side Mount' (http://unicyclist.org/cont/play.cfm?pi=w320240sidemnt)
    'Side Mount Leg around' (http://tinyurl.com/zsh2n) (with one extra time
    around seat. total times around seat: 2.)
    'Side mount reverse'
    (http://unicyclist.org/cont/play.cfm?pi=w320240sidemntrvc) (around the
    back of the seat)
    'Side mount reverse leg around' (http://tinyurl.com/h35al) (reverse
    with one extra time around seat, two times around total)

    Any of these mounts can be done with cranks horizontal standing on the
    crank, or with the cranks vertical standing on the pedal.
