[b][color=darkblue]Hey, I wanted to know, what's the difference between a manuel and a wheelie? I always thought they were the same until I saw people saying they were different.[/color][/b]

from what i know (a lot) in a manuel ur standing and your ass is NOT on the seat but sticking out and u use it to thrust your self forward.
in a wheelie your sitting on your seat and you lift up your front wheel, to move faster, you just pedal, its a lot harder but to me it looks cooler

[b][color=red]Ok, well...what if it's half and half...like you ARE on the seat, but you're not pedaling?[/color][/b]

In a wheelie, you are pedaling. In a manual, you are not. Manuals are good for higher speeds and they look better. If you are on the seat but not pedaling, you are doing a manual, but not for long, because you are about to lean too far back.

[b][color=red]Ohh ok. manuels seem easier to me. Cause I mean, wouldn't it be hard to pedal while on one wheel?[/color][/b]

No, actually each pedal gives your body a boost backwards, making it much easier to balance. You just can't really wheelie when you are going too fast, because the cranks will easily spin forward.
