No.
A bmx bike is to do tricks like that, why would you buy a bmx if you would think that...

Bunny hop?

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

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.
