    How high can you bunnyhop?

    Just what it says.

    How high, and what kind of bars / stem are you running.

    Who bunnyhops without clips

    on the mountain rig I couldn't clear a tire length-wise, but I could get onto platforms about 3 feet in the air

    I'm sorry if you were reading this expecting to be impressed

    Uh, because it's fun.
    I'm having trouble getting up really big curbs if I'm going straight at them. My cranks always end up in the wrong spot when I'm ready to hop up. Going at a slight angle I can just cut over when the cranks are in the right position. I'm able to get up a small 2-stair landing this way, but I can't go straight at it yet. Too many flat tires.

    (I'm running the stock pista stem w/ choped fsa risers and primo platform pedals)

    On my fixed, probably 5 or 6 inches. On my bmx, somewhere in the neighborhood of 38-40 inches.

    I've done a curb that was 10-12" on my fixie (doing the one-wheel-at-a-time thing). I'm not too good at getting both wheels off the ground at speed yet (I can do it, but only to clear small things). I'm working on doing the front-back bunnyhop (that is, pull up on the bars, then jump after the front is in the air) on my freewheel bikes, but am not too good at that yet either.

    I can only get a couple inches on the fixed gear using flat bars. Be careful not to crack your fork in half or put a nice ripple in your top tube doing bunnyhops.
