    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.

    No, we spell it curb.

    That's just plain wierd spelling it that way. You should move to the US so you can spell it properly.
