If you're going up a kerb yes, a park bench, maybe. A rail, no.

If the bars arent near your chest, you can go higher. Thats what defines a good bunnyhop. Pull up until you almost fall backwards(loop out) and then pick up the rear. Its a fine line.

I'd like to see you learn how to type/spell properly. Seriously.

I was bunny hopping my BMX that high before you were born.

I just called up Bob Scerbo, the Gonz, and Troy McMurray. They all agree. It's not impressive.

Thats beacause they can bunny hop horribly high. I think like...4 feet-ish?

That doesn't mean a thing. I ride both and can get the MTB 4' up with a bunny hop. Haven't tried for height yet on the bmx bike though, can also J-hop both bikes.

ColourClassic, your pic should be under 50kb. Go to http://www.irfanview.com Irfanview is a small program that is super easy for simple pic editing, like resizing and saving at different quality levels to save space. Any pic posted online can be under 100kb and be just fine even at full screen size. Here's your pic at 25kb instead of the 440kb you uploaded. The one that's just the edges I like to do that to pics for my kids to print and color with markers.

Cool bunnyhop. Keep at it.
