Hey, I'm new to the whole pit biking sport, but not to motocross by no means. I'm reading on here about 12 o' clock wheelies, and stuff like that and I have no idea what it means! So could you guys tell me the definitions to all these pit biking terms. I know things like wheelie, stoppie, and all the fmx tricks, but what are the definitions of these pit bike terms?

Do you mean 12" wheels? There are two popular sizes for rear wheels on pitbikes, 10 inch and 12 inch. Bikes with 12" rear wheels are often called midsized pitbikes.

12 oclock= doing a wheelie in the 12oclock postion, if you put a big clock behind the rider, their front wheel will be at 12oclock.
