ok..to face off..the owner of that hideous supermarket bike..remove that picture....it's good that you can bunnyhop 50 cm with that bike...but you should do something out your bars if you want to get higher.

This is the advice they gave me when I first started...don't focus to much on bunnyhopping op flatground...try to jump inside (ofcourse) a ramp. When you do that you just go higher and higher until you can get your feet over the coping. By then you should be able to try an 50-50 stall. This won't be easy..but this is the best way to learn to jump. (by doing this excercise you will also learn how to 180, well not at first)

Well I put a test, Me and my friends were arguing on how High you can possibly Bunny Hop or whatever. My theory was you can Hop as high as you can jump. My friend could jump high, but He couldnt do the same while he was on his bike. So I wanted to be proven correct. I just kept trying to hop so many times that I got used to jumphing with the weight of my bike. So by the end of the week of arguing, I hopped with my bike and I hoped as high as I could Jump which was 2 feet. I was shocked that i could do it, and so was my friend. Now when i go for a 50/50 grind I sometime jump completely over whatever Im grinding. Its pretty ****ign cool when you jump high, But I gotta learn how to land softer, I feel my whole bike landing pretty harsh to the ground.

It was falling apart...Now my bike was stolen and I dont have a bike...But I got a mongoose... Ha that thing will most definetly fall apart when I ride it, Its winter here in New Hampshire, so no riding for a while. Later Bikers.

I would say 17" is pretty damn good man. I can do 24" pretty regularly, and have even hit 30" a couple of times. That was on a 35 pound Haro 8O

The benefit of bunnyhopping well is broad. If you can hop 36" you can get yourself up on tables and S. I would say 24" would be a good goal, someone told me that when I started and I have found it true.

Bunnyhopping well helps with balance, is good for strength (back, arms, etc) and will help with hopping during manuals, peg stalls, dropping in on vert, etc.....things like that.
