post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've been working on my hops, and I the highest I've been able to get for awhile is about two feet high. Any tips?

not enough

just tuck to where your back wheel is touching your ass. that and pull up until you are perpindicular with the ground and your bike is almost straight up and down, then continue with your hop

try hopping on and over stuff, when I hop to just show someone. I hop less than a 1 foot, but it all changes when I hope over stacked bottles. I can jump over 2 litter bottle without ever worrying about messing up.

Remember:
1. Speed(helps figure balance point when pulling up)
2. Pull up(when your front wheel is above 1 foot off the ground, try standing up while pulling)
3.Tuck(scoop under with front foot, then at the same time push back and scoop up with back foot and push bars forward to level out.)

From your picture i looks good, so just work on step 2.

make a height bar. set it to desired height. hop over it. kinda like a limbo stick. if u dont jump high enough you will just knock the bar off the bars holding it up and you wont fall and possibly hurt yourself. looks good tho
