alright, bunny hopping j-hopping prohopping,, wutever.heres how u do it:

pull ur bars up so ur front tire is about a foot off the ground.then tilt your feet on the pedals and pull the bike up. once in the air tuck and youll get some more height. i find it easier if you try to clear a curb, skateboad, shoes, milk carton, etc. jus make sure u pull up a little before the object so u hav time to get height and clear it. most important rule: jus keep practicing.

ya, bunny hopping takes lots of time.....first you want to pull up on your bars and get them close to your lap...then try to push them out and tuck up....it might not work the first few times but it takes PRACTICE>......

seeing as how were talking about easy 5 year old tricks and rather than start another thread...
i was at the skatepark yesterday trying to get down some decent 180's of a mini-quarter onto a deck. i was sorta getting them around except it was more of a tailtap cuz my backwheel wasnt coming up and i wasnt making them quite all the way around...anyone have any sugestions on how to get the backwheel up more?

I ride to have fun, but i do care what people think. if i do a trick, i ask people what they think, if they tell me it's sketchy, i'll work on it. if they say it's good, i'll try something else

go higher off the quarter and when you get up to your peak try to level your bike with the bank/deck

i know what mini your talking about...what i meant was that you went off the side of the mini and you could have gone higher up and then tried the 180 because then you can have more air to spin...
