    Bunny hop?

    I would think it should be fine. Make sure your bolts are torqued and don't slam down your bike.

    dude. i go riding like every day. im only on here when no one is awake to ride yet, or its too dark to ride. dont be a ****. its unhealthy.

    and you still need to learn how to type! its summer! go take a class at your local school. im sure they have summer programs available.

    That they aren't loose. Maybe some parts/bike manuals have specs on that? The most often thing I have seen with Bunny Hops are riders not checking the stem/handlebars and they become loose, stripped, and unsafe. But hey...you're on a BMX....whats this safety junk?


    Now enjoy starting off small and before you know it you'll be clearing small trashcans with ease.
