Grinding Guide

Basics:

First you need a bike... and of course a rail, it is easier to grind with thinner rails as fences etc...

Get a angle of 25-45 degrees (depending on your speed) and do a wheelie against the rail then press the analog forward so the front wheel goes down. For me at least it's easier to do rails on the right side (i'm right handed) but when you get better it gets easier on other side too. I tried and it works with 0 degree angle too but really hard to stay on the rail tho..

 

Railing:

The angle you should use is more bigger the less speed you have. If you are doing a fast rail you need about 2-3 bike lenghts and about 30 degrees to the rail, when you hit the rail with fast speed you must press analog to the right before you press it forward and right after you press it forward press it back left, so it's 90 degree to the rail, and then just start balancing your bike.

 

Tricks:

To make tricks on a rail you need a bit speed but not much. The ''basic'' trick is that after about 3 seconds of grinding you press the analog down and you should do a spinning trick, try to grind as long as possible to get the bike spin more. I don't know how to make other tricks, but there probably exist more.

You usually must have sparks, which means your bike is grinding a bit fast, to get better tricks.

 

Practicing:

You should start with thinner rails and then work you way up. The grinding skill will take some time to master but once you master this technique you should be able to tear some rails up.

ive got a doc somewhere when i find it i will post it

 

EDIT: found it hope this helps

 

1.Basics

 

First you need a bike.. and of ourse a rail (easier with thinner rails as fences etc..)

Get a angle of 25-45 degrees (depending on your speed) and do a wheelie against the rail then press the analog forward so the front wheel goes down. For me at least it's easier to do rails on the right side (i'm right handed) but when you get better it gets easier on other side too.I tried and it works with 0 angle too but really hard to stay on the rail tho..

 

2.Railing

The angle you should use is more bigger the less speed you have. If you are doing a fast rail (cooler) you need like.. 2-3 bike lenghts and about 30 degrees to the rail, when you hit the rail with fast speed you must press analog to the right before you press it forward and right after u press it forward press it back left ( so it's 90 degrees to the rail) and then just start balancing

 

3.Tricks

To make tricks on a rail you need a bit speed but not much. The ''basic'' trick is that after about 3 (not sure) secs of railing you press the analog down and you should do a spinning trick ^^ (try to rail as long as possible to get the bike spin more. I don't know how to make other tricks ^^ but there probably exist more.

You usually must have sparks (your bike rails a bit fast) to get better tricks

 

4.Practicing

You should start with thinner rails so a good spot is for example in fort carson near the cluckin bell on the railroad the fences (they are long and thin).

The stunt pegs aren't solid neither are windmirrors and bumpers aren't its the actual front of the car that changes the image of the bumper when hit because when I did the glitch and cheat mod any car trick i put the front and back bumper of a Jester on a Blista and the far right of the bumper wasn't even on the car it was to the left so I hit the floating bumper and nothing happened I hit the car where there was no bumper and the bumper changed image to the smashed up one

That sounds good. We could all chip in on locations and someone adds them to a map.

ps. I did my first grind yesterday thanks to gtasanandreasmaster's guide.

I think alot of people would be intrested and we could all chip in. I dont think many people really know about grinding. I didnt know until I saw it in a stunt video.

 

Can anyone take screen shots that would help for the guide.

I would but I have no D.Camara. Still grinding is as close to a proper trick as you can do on a BMX on this game. How bout an Xtreme Sports topic covering the best locations to grind and jump on bmx and where to Motor Cross!

EDIT:I am editing my sig to promote this idea biggrin.gif !

I need some grinding locations and tips aswell.

 

I can do some poor-average NRG grinds but cant find any good rails. Didnt know you could do tricks, ill try it later.

 

Ive done one very small BMX grind. Any tips on how to do them? I just fall off almost instantly.

 

Any good places for taxi grinding? Need some thicker walls really and I have only found a few. Taxis dont jump as high as they did in VC so its a bit more difficult now.

 

I have a capture device so I can get some screenshots for ya.
