If you dont know I have a MGX DXR (one of those heavy mountain bikes from Wal mart) and I was reading the lesson from hansrey.com for the bunnyhop on a mountain bike. I can hop about 7 inches max from lifting both my tires at the same time by jumping up with force on my legs and body. There is no way I could even come close to broncoing that bike( pull up to manual, then hop off back tire) because its so heavy. I explode and jump like you should on a mountain bike, but can bronco a lighter BMX bike. Is there any way I can bunnyhop my heavy mountain bike higher with any tips or will I just have to jump higher and use more force. Or get a lighter bike.
Strength and practice.When I got my ride I could just get the front wheel up an inch or so, but forget about the back. Now, three months later, I can easily go 1.5" No, I'd guess comfortably I can pull the front up a foot or so, and can manage a bunny hop over anything less then a high curb. Maybe 4-5 inches.
