BMX - Ok guys, A contest/challenge here.
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Spend the next few days somehow measuering your bunny hop. See who gets the highest. I'm suspecting pulling a string between two yard sticks would be easy enough. Before you actually measure your hop though. Try to predect what it will be. I'm guessing that my best will be about 18 to 24 inches, but likely closer to 18".
Alright, it's Wednesday 9/21. Lets all report back within a week. And if you get a pic, then that much better. Good luck guys.
Predicted 24"high , got 20" high on a Haro Cruiser on flat pavment measured by pulling string between 2 sticks.
A rather underwhelming response here, Darin. I'd have to move 3 bikes to dig out my BMX right now. We've only been riding the tandem and our beach cruisers lately, but since it's now spring time, I'll try and get back into racing. By the way, I rode my beach cruiser to the bike shop that I work at on Saturdays. When I ride with my wife, we're just a couple out for a ride on matching bikes. But when it's just me, I feel like Forrest Gump on that thing. I'll probably ride my Haro there next weekend, which will be a good way to get back into shape.
