    How high can you bunnyhop?

    I am asking this just out of curiosity. How high can you bunnyhop? Clipless or flat pedals? Bmx, Hardtail or full suspension?

    I was riding my bmx bike urban today and came upon a big ledge. My previous highest ledge was about 16 inches high, but my friend convinced me to try this 25" high ledge. Well, I made it on my second try and needless to say I am very happy!

    If you think this is stupid, then keep your negative comments to yourself!

    My best is a little over 2 feet, but I've notice I can hop on to things that are higher with speed, and when i'm in o sh!t mode Thinking i'm about to crash into something..

    On a hardtail, with 26" rear wheel, higher with a 24" rear wheel, go figure.

    I can't bunny hop. I can't figure out how to get the rear wheel up. All the tutorials don't work for me...
    my bike is a $250 "department store" full suspension bike... seriously....

    I can only hop about a foot on my chameleon. If I try hard to do everything right I can hop higher. On the trail I can consistently hop 8" logs now, which is about perfect for my area as there's lots of smallish logs across the trails.

    i bunny hop way higher with flats than with clipless. with clipless i tend to "cheat", where as with flats, i use proper bunny hop form, resulting in a higher hop.

    I dont usually bunnyhop with a tape measure, so I dont relaly know.

    I can hop high enough, wich gets me up and over most logs I come accross.

    I can't bunnyhop worth a crap with my SPDs, maybe 12-18 inches. But I can easily do 30+ inches with my hardtail and platforms. I haven't figured out why yet. I have a BMX and trials background, been bunnyhopping for over two decades

    From basically a standstill on 36lb FS bike I can get it about 6~10" off the ground (including my fat 220lb butt). With some speed on the trail probably a couple more inches if there is something to clear i.e. log(s) or on the street (high curb). Obstacles any bigger than that & I need a lip & more speed to clear it.

    Really trying to get a HT built for 'around town' riding...would like to see how much I can get a HT off the ground.

    I ride flats on all my bikes. On a BMX, I can get up onto something between 2 and 3 feet tall, but under 3. On a hardtail, I can go about 20 inches, maybe a little more. On my squishie, I'd be [email protected] lucky to hop more than a foot.

    to learn.. just try to pull up on the bars as high as you can while leaning back (almost into a manual) then try to throw yourself over the bars while keeping your feet on the pedals.


    then you get the general motion so start refining it.

    What happend with the most important Numbers....
    From One to two feet High...!?!?!

    At least important for me since more than two feet is almost impossible with a 9 inches of travel M-Pire, my skill level and my fat butt and less than one foot high is just to easy and low.

    I'll try that the next time I've got the bike out.

    To get the back end up, point your toes down slightly, and push back and up your feet against the pedals as you jump. Once I learned to point my toes down a bit, it all clicked for me.

    I can hop about 12-16 inches on my FS with flats, about the same on the HT with clipless when I had it. I too find hopping strangely easier with flats than clipless.

    I use flats and my bike has the worst geometry for anything (it's pretty much a road bike with 2.1" tires). I can consistently manage about 12"-18". On a BMX bike I used to be able to hop garbage cans (standing up). I don't get hung up on too much out on the trail.

    About 36" on the hardtail and 28-30" on the Norco Six; both with flats. Haven't tried on a BMX in a while but would imagine it would be closer to 40".

    Yeah, what happened to 1-2 feet?! Since you didn't have that option, I selected up to 12" which I can get on a full rigid bike (no front or back suspension.) Haven't tried much on the hard tail since putting front suspension on.

    I can get about 16" or so on the full suspension. Of course, keep in mind my girlfriend says I exaggerate when I talk about inches of length!

    not at all with flats. i'm thinking it has something to do with the flat bars and a 110mm stem. i really need a dedicated ME bike.

    I learned with http://www.bmxbasics.org/new/bmx0703.html and it taught me. It sounds like I had the same problem as you guys did. Now I can get around a foot when I try hard, but I'm aiming for more.

    Usually, those don't turn out very well...

    hehe.


    My highest was either hopping over a 2 ft bench or a planter that was taller than my rim....
