The second I saw the title of this thread, I knew that this kid was either going to be from the UK.

Noob pressure if I were to guess. Along with Mach 4 speed in order to make it up that HUGE "kerb"!

Hope it wasn't the front. I am 43 and can still bunny hop at least 8 inches, (with a messed up rotator cuff). In my younger days, I could go to 18". Used to BH parking lot chains. You should at least be pulling up the front wheel up a curb. I would be surprised if your wheels weren't bent.

In case you're mistakenly thinking that it's a typo, that's how they spell it in England, Australia, and New Zealand.

bunnyhopping is easier on a mountain bike depending on the bike.
