Right guys, I need a proper technique for bunnyhopping. A detailed description if you will.

So far I've been told to roll forward, jump (like, lift feet with pedals) and roll your hands forward. Doesn't seem to work very well, but then again I'm new to riding a BMX.

So... help! 8)

Here is the way i do them and this might help u.

1. Roll at a comfortable speed

2. You should start to crouch like your going jump.

3. Pull up your front wheel and start to jump(u should be almost in a standing position now.)

4. Start to jump. Push forward on the bars to bring the up back wheel and to level the bike out.

The next part is where the good bunnyhoppers get the height. It is all about tucking.

5. If u want to get a little more height you must tuck your knees into your chest and get your ass behind your seat. Some people tuck so high there ass hits there tire.

This should help but if your still stumped you should pickup rides magazines "Basics" video.

i usually like to do a j-hop kinda thing. like do a little manual before hand, and then kick your back wheel up. i find it helps me get a lot more momentum going either upwards, or gapping forward. focus on the way you move your body weight, and it should work out. hope this helped :)

the only thing i can add to T1's description is to wait 'till your balanced over your rear tire to jump. fire your legs when your in a sort of crouched manual position. just keep riding. they'll get better inevitably.

No NO No thats all rong first try just ursing ur wieght and ur feet to sort of endo while moving with out lifing the front basically try and nose manual

1. Use ur wrists to push bars

2. Ur weight to rock forward

3. kinda of a kick back with ur legs to lift ( use grip on petals to lift)

then once u can get ur back up the just lift the front and do the same on the back its easy then u can try and nose manual things like stuff i duNN!O

I thought nollie was a skateboard term? You are meaning back wheel off the ground first, right?

How about donkey kicking (or whatever you may call it), I can get hte backwheel about a foot and a bit off the ground.

Donkey Kicking is just lifting the backwheel off the ground while rolling forward, you can use it to drop down ledges when your going parallel to them backwheel first. Its shweet.
