Practice riding and pulling just your back wheel off the ground, it dosent matter how high, as long as you can get it up a few inches thats fine. Then put that technique into your bunnyhoping. Angle your feet down to help grip the pedals and lift the back end up.

Think more of pushing forward on the bars once you have your front wheel up to level out your bike. It is the same as ollieing on a skateboard where the front foot slides to the front of the board to level it out.

First, you dont have a bunny to hop.
Second, get a bunny.
Third, keep trying, tricks dont come overnight....

You have to keep trying.

The way I do a bunny hop is first crouch down on the pedals, then jump up (feet still on pedals) and pull up on the handlebars hard. Itll take some time to master if its a heavy bike.

Yeah, but how far do you crouch?
Haha.
