Hey everyone, I started a thread here called "Tips for bunnyhopping" or something like that, asking for, well, obviosly tips for bunnyhops! Well anyway I've been practicing back lifts (where you point your toes and press backwards against the pedals and pull up with you hamstrings) and manuals for about two weeks, and I hadn't tried putting them together. Well on saturday after I had gotten used to my new Monster cranks (wich by the way are extremely awesome!) just out of curiosity I tried to bunnyhop, and to my big astonishment I actually did my very first bunnyhop! On the next day my dad came out to watch me for awhile, and then he asked me to do a bunnyhop. So he got two cinder blocks, and a peice of plastic tubing and layed it across the two cinder blocks for a little bunnyhop stand. Well first I tried it at two inches... cleared it easily. Next at three... no problem. After that, four and a half inches, and after a few tries I cleared it!! It feels so good to see your hard (and sometimes frustrating) practice pay off, and I'm so happy I can finally do a bunnyhop! Now I know that four and a half inches isn't going to get me very far, but it's a great start, especially since it was my very first day trying to clear something. Now all I need to do since I've gotten the feeling is just practice practice practice!! Thanks alot to everyone here who offered their tips and encouragement, it was really nice.
PS: Does anyone have any tips on how to land back wheel first, or is it nessecary? I didn't think that it was since I'm only four or so inches off of the ground, but I wasn't sure. Thanks!
