Looking for the 5 best bicycles for wheelies? Of all the fond childhood memories we have on bicycles, wheelies have always held a special place in our hearts. Even if you’re grown, you can still do wheelies; you just need to find the right bike to do them on!
- Origin8 Uno. There is debate as to whether wheelies are easier with a fixed-gear or a freewheel. Put that debate to rest in style! The Origin8 Uno is a classy cross between a track bike and a commuter, letting you choose both-with its flip-flop rear hub-so you can find out for yourself.
- Raleigh Rush Hour. Another great bike with a flip-flop rear hub, the Raleigh Rush Hour attracts attention-even with both wheels on the ground! With a sturdy chromo frame design and a pair of well-built Weinmann wheels, this bike just begs you to pop a wheelie.
- Trek 820 Mountain Hardtail. For those of you who are nervous about the skinny 700c tires on the previous two bikes, the Trek 820 is a great bike to practice doing wheelies on. Get your confidence up with this less expensive alternative, complete with elbow-saving front suspension that will absorb some of the impact from those initial failed wheelies.
- Specialized Rockhopper. Upgrade to disc brakes without breaking the bank with the Specialized Rockhopper, and you can practice doing wheelies all day-even in the rain! With a light-weight alloy frame and well-designed crankset, this hardtail mountain bike practically does the wheelies for you.
- Haro F4 BMX. For the die-hard BMX riders out there, the Haro F4 was built for wheelies-and a whole lot of other tricks, too! Extra points if you can implement the pegs into your wheelie.
