Re: curious...

Depends if I'm tired or not, but usually heel in air.

Re: curious...

how does your foot being on the floor prevent head bobbles any more than it being raised?

If you keep you foot on the floor it is harder to snap the clutch to shift quickly like you do if you keep it off the floor.
