Okay.  I need to land one.. Seriously. Its been months of struggling to
flip the cranks, and keeping it under me, and two months ago, I mastered
that portion.. Now I just need to get my feet on the pedals.

Anybody in?

Sig trophy: )-Crankflip-'O,

I can't land this for the life of me.. I feel so close, but I can't get
it!

Aww I just landed one a few days ago.  There were no tips that helped
me, it was just lots and lots of practice and forcing myself to get my
front foot back on.

My problem is my back foot.  I realize no tips really help.  Its just
commitment and practice.  I'll get it soon I hope.

I've been trying.  One day, I could flip the cranks and sometimes even
get it to double flipping speeds but I would never commit and land back
on it.  Then I was trying today and I couldn't even kick it around
once... I felt so frustrated.  So I'll try this!  I'm gonna try and get
one down by the Berkeley Juggling and Unicycle Festival.

Well, I could get the cranks around twice when I started, but I wasn't
staying over the unicycle, and it was really hard to stay above it. Now
its about commitment to landing on top once.

I`m in! I`ve been putting off crankflips for far too long. I can Zero
Plant, but haven`t even tried committing to the crank flip.

I'm so in.

I can zeroplant doubleflip all the time, and footplant double about
half the time.

I feel like I'm close on crankflips, but it seems like I have to flip
completely differently than when I footplant. I keep experimenting with
different ways to do it and I'm not sure which is going to end up being
the "right" way. So sometimes I feel like I'm really close to getting it
and sometimes I feel like I'm nowhere near.

I got really close today.  Just messing around in the driveway.  I got
much closer than this, but it wasn't on camera.  My front foot stayed on
the pedal, and my back foot caught the pedal, but skimmed right off.
I'll post footage in a little while, mainly because I'm pretty bored I
guess.
