Hi, there must have been lots of topics on this but I have a few questions of my own.

I have been trying to do bunnyhops on my cross country mountain bike but I cant manage to lift the back end up once the front is in the air. I know its a mountain bike but iisn't it the same method as it is on a BMX?

I've decided to get a wethepeople DareDevil. Also in dirtjumping do u have to know how to bunnyhop to take off from a jump?

Thanks,
Oli

i just pump or pull up on dirt jumps, so u may be ok, but for bunny hops pull up the front tire as high as u can than grip your feet into the pedal and make shure ur toes are facing the ground, than push foward and should get your bake one up

ENDO: just push forward and move your toes facing towards the ground in the process of pushing forward

cool thanks. I already know the method, its just pulling it off on a cross country mountain bike is pretty hard.

Anyways, I have narrowed my choice of bikes down to:

Hoffman Disruptor EL2
"" Rythem EL2
wethepeople Dare devil

which one for street/dirt

i live in Birmingham. What i need to do is to meet some riders who are willing to have a begginer tagging along...

Anyways about the bike...i'll most likely get the wethepeople, but i'll go to my local BMX shop tomoz and consult the dude there.

Also what did u guys do when u first got ur bikes? Did u go straight to a park and ride the ramps and grinds?

i can do it on my mountain bike. My BMX should arrive tommorow or on monday, so i'll practice on it then. The hard part is to combine lifting the front up with the endo....once i get that i should get a bunnyhop.

I can do a small jump whilst lifting the front and back simultaneously, which is pretty easy.

a) it isn't an endo actually
b) lifting back and front at the same time is indeed pretty easy, but you can't get as high with it as a real bunnyhop :)

Yea, it takes time. The only thing I will say is that "bunnyhopping well" is very important and beneificial to future overall riding.

i learned bunnyhoping by standing on the back pegs, but that messed me up later because i would start pulling up the back tire as soon as the front was up giving me about a 3 inch hop so dont make the same mistake as me :wink:
