Boy do I live in the wrong area to learn on..... The lovely hills of Eltham look so picturesque but suck when you are learning to ride especially the ones that are on a 45 degree angle up hill...... :evil: I am enjoying my new toy in the back streets but what is the best method of doing a take off going up hill? In the cage I find hand brake take-offs easy but on the bike I feel totally awkward and I am holding the foot (rear) brake on too hold and stalling and getting flustered and strange looks. I am guessing the rear brake is the one to use but I am not having a lot of success. Any advice?
