    We gave you the easiest possible ways. If you are still having problems I don't know what to say. It is really easy. Point toes down. Crouch down to preload legs. Pull up with your arms and as you lift push the bike up and JUMP!. You will bunny hop. The less exagerated the motion the less air you get.

    For a regular hop point toes down and pull with arms and legs at the same time. (this will produce the lowest end bunny hop possible to maximize height learn the j-hop which is described above)

    To practice pulling up with legs point toes down a bit and preload legs. Now jump a bit and rear should lift. This is the key to a good bunny hop.

    Where are you having a problem. Getting the front ened up hopping itself, height. Have you even gotten both wheels off the ground yet?

    For way more detail then I care to type try this trials resourc. Go to the trials *** and it has a FANTASTIC description of a bunnhop

    It's all in the practice you put in. If you've had trouble and you've practiced a lot, re-read the steps Mael listed. After trying long enough, you might all of sudden realize what tou were doing wrong.

    sometimes it easier if you have something to jump, like a board, log, cone...ect

    i worked my way up from a 4/4 all the way to a 12inch long in one day. so it can be done.

    This is how you bunny hop.....you PRACTICE BUNNY HOPPING. Its as simple as that, there is no better explanation. Practice for a year or more, and then if you still cant do it then have somebody physically teach you.

    I just envisioned some extra large rider tossing said rider and bike in the air to explain the concept

    I hope for bunnies all the time, but I've never had a centerfold show any interest in me yet.
    I'll gently rise and I'll softly call
    Good night and joy be with you all.

    Is there a BMX track in your area?

    Go there, ask the first 12 year old kid you see to show you.

    You've really got to see it done, then mimick what they do.

    One tip I used when teaching my wife is to first learn to pull up the back wheel with her feet.

    I'm assuming you know how to do a wheelie. What you want to do is a rear wheel wheelie. Roll along, point toes down, in one quick move, lean forward, push the bars forward and pull back and up with your feet, (by pushing down and back then up). Practice this first, and it'll teach you how to pull the back wheel up with your feet.

    Then do the J-Hop moves!
