well you gotta learn sometime i guess, a bunnyhop is when you pull up the handlebars and kind of put your feet pointing towards the grond on your pedals and then pull up the back by pushing down on the pedals. a wheelie is when you pull up the front and pedal to keep it up. do manuals though, they are a lot cooler. I don't think my description made any sense at all, so check out bmxtrix.com and go to a tricks section. that guy knows a lot.

I bunnyhopped onto the bedcover of my truck once! Once I got up there I was like WTF?? How did I do that???,,,,BD







Nah, I'm full of it. Maybe 8-10 inches. I can't trust myself not to fly over the bars when the back wheel hits what I am trying to clear. I'm a 37 y/o guy, on a 20+ y/o Mongoose. The possibility of personal injury is high, but I am still having a blast.

i belive the highest bunnyhop ever recorded (i saw this in the guiness book of record) was like 44 inches.

they also said the longes endo held was 23 seconds, which i was like, ok not very long but it went on to say the guy did a wheelie on the front wheel for 23 sec without toughing the pedals. correct me if im wrong endos and wheelies are two different things.

I did a bunny hop once...durrrr.
Haha I have NO clue how high...umm I ride a Haro Backtrail X1 that is heavy as ****, but it seems like my light mountain bike is almost too lose to do very high. I just need my new freestyle mtb. But I am guessing 2foot range? More if there is an obstacle.

Can't, I'm 6'4.

Maybe I can, haven't ridden a bmx in many moons. But a buddy still has all our bikes from the good old days.

We spent 1/2 hour trying to get a bunny hop at night, 5th floor on the rooftop of a car park, with my digital camera,ET syle with the moon behind me, reckon 1 foot and 1/2 , hard to know without clearing an object of known height, i.e a 1Ft log or something, cool tho huh

I think that I can go around 2 1/2 to 3 feet, but I am a racer so that really doesn't matter.
