bunny hop 360's

ok i can do a bunny hop 180 but i cant do a 360. when i say 360 i mean doing a 180 then tire tap 180 again. i ride break less tho and was wondering if that is any reason to why i cant do these?

brakes certainly do help to do this.....but i assume you could just pedal forward when you land...

if you don't stop you back wheel I don't see how you could get any leverage to pop the rest of the way around. I just tried it brakes were used. This whole "brakeless" trend is silly. (nothing personal) It reminds me of all the "new standard" skateboard deck and wheel shapes and the (thank god) dying matte black bike trend... yuck.

lol....I rode brakeless when I first got into bmx a long time ago and kept up with it until about 3 years before I quit.....I only had brakes on my race bikes and my flatland bike.....I learned everything brakeless before anything and I never had any problems.....

I wouldnt call it a trend....much like some rode cyclists ride fixed, some mtbers ride SS, some bmxers prefer no brakes...
