I used the Phoenix for a few minutes, then switched over to the Gecko. Tried that for only like 10 faults and didn't like it. Didn't really have the speed, it seems, to stay steady. Switched back to the Phoenix and nailed the achievement a few minutes later.

Tried the Phoenix, Scorpion, and Gecko. Got to say that at least for me the Gecko was much better for it. It has much more bounciness which really helps with getting to the finish quicker and wheelies seemed easier to both pop and control.

Just got it
Didn't really find it that hard, spent around an hour going for it with the Phoenix.

I still have to get gold medals on all the extreme tracks and skill games, which seems to be rather difficult for me... So I'd say this achievement is easier, IMO.

I also did it with the phoenix, I'm just not that good at controlling the rider like that to use the Gecko.

I think it's a subjective achievement as I found Golding all the tracks not too much hassle as I am quite experienced nowadays, but I'm not the best at finely controling the bike like that, as I said before, mine was half skill half luck.

In hindsight, this achievement was the one I hated getting the most, the only one I had to really grind at and the only one I didn't enjoy, so for meit was the hardest.

There will be people out there who can get this who cannot get Gold on extreme, so as I said, subjective.

Yeah for me getting gold on skills games and easy to hard tracks was a cake walk and I know I can get gold on those extreme tracks as I have get gold on all the original tracks but I just wanted to get this out the way... For me this is crazy hard as it's also something that you don't actually need in this game so I haven't bothered to actually learn how to wheelie.

It does work, found it myself too

Someone over on the redlynx forum also said it worked for them... Although a lot of other said it was cheating but hey ho, if it gets you the achievement who cares haha

EDIT: Here's the video for proof i suppose... Done it on my missus' account as you can see, i settle on the ledge and then go for it... Both wheels on the floor of the ledge... then achievement at the end

If your finding it difficult and want an easy way to get the achievement, check my video out dude... You can land on one of the ledges with both wheels and still get the achievement.

You make it look so easy. Are you accelerating the entire time?

How can they say it's cheating. You would think something that obvious (an object not set to a hit trigger tied to the achievement's coding) would be done on purpose and not missed by Redlynx, but I suppose anything's possible.

Thanks for posting that. I could do the first two parts fine I just couldn't make the last landing before the finish.

Near enough the whole time yeah, its just a case of perseverance really bud, you say i make it look so easy but you can see it took me 151 tries on that video and about 28 mins and 460+ tries on another hahaha Keep at it, you'll get it sooner or later just make sure you settle yourself on the ledge and figure out how your going to approach the final hill...

One thing about the ledge that makes this achievement easier: I faulted a lot trying to get onto it. If you don't think you're going to make it to the ledge just try to finish like normal.

^This! I landed 30 times out on the safe ledge out of 1500 attempts, and I was unsuccessful on the last jump everytime. Messed up like 20 times trying to land on the safe ledge. Also I couldn't ever make the final jump from that ledge. I don't think I had enough momentum. (Not skillful enough)

I had a flawless run just now without using the safe ledge and didn't see the achievement pop. I was so pissed! But then I checked my list and I already had it or the notice didn't pop up this time. Confirmed on Xbox.com that it wasn't a glitch. Thank goodness. I had another run that I thought was perfect before, but sometimes the sound that signals you touched the ground is really quiet.

One last hint if you're flipped backwards right before the safety ledge (basically the ledge on top) try braking and you'll flip back over and land safely on the "safe" ledge. I only got this to work once, but can't hurt to try.

Good luck everyone.

When I was attempting it, I noticed the ledge didn't cause the laugh in the background, so I assumed it might allow you to land on it and still get the achievement, but that sounded too good to be true. I ended up just doing it the normal way with the Gecko.

Another quick advice is if you're going up the first slope and don't reach the platform above just reset. Don't screw around dinking and trying to do some miracle wheelie up the slope. Even if you make it up there, you don't have enough speed to get you across. It may take you over 2000 faults so you need to waste as little time as possible.

Whew finally got it! I got it the normal way but thanks DJSmurf! It was your video that made me go back to try this!

I guess some higher power had enough fun with me as when I got to the legde above that save-legde and had way too much speed to drop there, I just bunny hopped from there and surprisingly landed perfectly and just bounced to the finish.

I'm so happy that I got this hardest achievement out the way!

First thing I did after getting the DLC was to try the Wheelie-achievement since all the other simular ones in the Trials series (like Full Throttle, Donkey Challenge, etc) have been some of the most enjoyable parts in the games. But this one... just.. argh.. After two hours of accomplishing absolutely nothing, I gave up. Decided to go for gold on everything first, which I soon will be finished with (only Uphill Struggle left now). So, I'm trying to gather courage to enter the nuthouse again... that clown's laugh is still hunting my dreams...

But sometimes there are some close calls and after 500+ runs, it gets difficult to tell (from semi-zoning out) if your front wheel actually hit the ground.

Exactly.

Finally got the achievement the other day by the way, took around 2500 tries overall... which was my last one on Origin of Pain, yay! Extremely enjoyable DLC, highly recommend it for those who haven't bought it yet.

I turned off that damned music but kept the FX because I needed to know if I failed.
