Given, gained.

Let me be the first to say that was completely random ... I like it.

But back to the point, I have been trying to get my bunnyhops better for a while but I'm still jumping around a foot maybe alil more on a good day.

the higher you pull the bar up the higher you go. when at the top row the bar forward. push it from where it is(close to chest) to as far as you can push forward. i've bunnyhopped 3.5 feet high but that was 3-4 years ago. i've got on four foot ledges with my mtb though. big wheels help i guess! keep trying you'll get better.

for some reason i can bunnyhop much higher when theres an obstacle im clearing. i can easily bunnyhop up a 2.5ft ledge, but can only bunnyhop like 1.5 ft with no obstacles around.

Well my friend grinded a 4 foot loading dock thing when he was like 13.. He's amazing.. Only like 15 now.. incredible.. but yea, I hurt my wrists jumping off this thing and he feeble grinds it after less than 10 tries.. And your average handrail is probably a little over 3 feet.

Actually, EVA is "extravehicular activity", referring to "activity or maneuvers performed by an astronaut outside a spacecraft in space" according to The American Heritage Dictionary.

No, some people just get sick of others who don't like to even try to type correctly on the internet... U no wat i men ryt?

Probably my best height was in the 3 foot range - cleared an inverted 33 gallon trash can entirely. So, probably a little higher than 3 feet to clear the entire thing. But, that was about 10 years ago now.

I jumped my road bike over a double set of railroad tracks once. I was going about 25 mph, but have no idea how high I jumped.

i can get on any picnic table, i can stop in a manual on a 33 gal can then 360 off. i can most definately bunnyhop 3.5 or higher. all you have to do to get on a table is get your front tire up, then row the bars forward while pulling with feet.basically you land riding and endo. i ride trials so this is normal. check it out guys!
