Metal trash can with an empty beer case on top , honest , will post the pic tonight when I get home . There is a big difference between hopping over a bar as opposed to a solid object , you dont get to stuff your front wheel down and get the extra couple of inches as the back end lifts .

A bar is a solid object. When you hit it you hit it, it's not going anywhere.





As for how high I can bunnyhop, well I'm kind of embarassed to say, but I've only gotten around 10 inches..... I know, it stinks, but I've only been practicing them for two weeks now. I'm sure I'll get better though. Also, I'm riding a stock rig with a longer heavier frame than some of the better frames are, so that also might have something to do with it.

i think he means a solid object is a ledge or something you can jump on.


it's easier to stall a ledge than jumping on it because to jump on it you must jump 10 inches higher than you would to grind it.

well, I was explaining it to dodge. and you don't have to type the quote. there is a link that says "reply with quote"


a trash can is about 2 1/2 feet with the beer case and has about a 1 1/2 foot diameter

What I meant about a bar was the kind used in high jumps . A piece of bamboo balanced between 2 poles with pegs at 1 inch increments . Once you clear the sprocket height , you stuff the front wheel down and it raises the back wheel . Kinda like a teetertotter with your chainring as the pivot point .

I WILL NOT call my daddy and ask him to verify this , It is real and I cleared it !This is 20 years old , the quad with the Haro Vector bars , MX 1000 brakes , and Tuff two's . In this pic I have cleared the height with my sprocket and am just about to stuff the front down . Close to 40 inches by my current trash can and handy case of beer .

One of the few things I did VERY well !

Here ya go ![IMG][/IMG]

mag rims. gangsta. Now, the only people that use mags are the people that steal them.
I don't have to worry about bike thieves. they don't know what a standard is. They ride around on hoopdys looking forlittle kids riding haros and gts.

When I say solid object , I mean one that you can't stuff the front wheel over , like a ledge . Very scary ! Never tried it at all . I have a side shot I am looking for....

a ledge is easier and less scary.

1) you can put the front wheel and nose manual on it

2)there is no 2 or 3 foot drop if you don't clear it

But if your rear wheel hits it , you STOP ! I can ride through a bamboo pole , or crush a box , but would get a seat in the chest on something solid for sure ! My new bike will be to heavy to bother with anything too tall and I am no longer made of rubber . Need some health insurance too , come to think of it ...

it really sucks when you try to jump a rail going down stairs and you clip. it hurts so much especially if you land on concrete
