I always bunny hop on benches and manual off and pull a bar spin or something. you think i could do a picnic table? I can almost get into the back of a truck. A j hop is a bunny hop just done a differnt way i beleive.

its a bunnyhop i dont know why people call it otherwise. but mine varies if im just bunnyhopping it be like 2-2 1/2ft and if im trying to get onto something i can usually get higher then that. i almost disastered a 3 1/2ft tall cement highway divider and it was in the grass and had a bit of a dip in front of it so it made it harder since i dont bunnyhop very well in grass and it was soggy too

ok to clarify things a bunnyhop is when you pick up the front tire then the back. if you pick up your bike all at once i have no clue what that is called me and my friends call it a frog hop but we never do that anymore we did when we couldnt bunnyhop

You mean bring your front up then make the back tire jump off the ground then level out your front end to clear what ever?

ok so then he calls picking the bike straight up a j-hop, well its simple pick the bike up all at once. its what i use to do when i couldnt bunnyhop. so just pick up the bike and jump all at the same time, dont pick up the front then back pick it up all at once

Bunnyhopping explained:
OK, this is my take on it.

1) Yanking the bike straight up in the air, both tires off the ground at the same time, and both landing at the same time is the classic "bunnyhop". This is usually the FIRST hop someone learns, but will not take you much over a foot. Laws of physics just won't let you get it any higher than that. There may be some grey area here.....but you won't get much higher than a foot, doing it that way.
2) Once you progress, you will learn to bunnyhop like a horse bucks (for lack of a better description) wherein you will PULL your front end up first, and while that is riding high, yank the back wheel off the ground by pushing your weight forward, and using your SHOES on the pedals to push back and pull up at the same time. This kind of hop will get you in the 24"-30" range. It is actually two tricks molded into one.......a FULL FRONT PULL, and an ENDO. Put these two together in one fluid motion and you have what people are calling a J-hop, probably also a Pro Hop :roll:
3) # 2 is where I am at currently. I can hop 18" without thinking, and after a few tries can be consistent with 24". I have pulled a FEW 30". If you want to be hopping some 3 feet or even more, I have been told that you have to learn to add and "extra" small "hop" off the back tire. Sooooo, you would execute #2.....and RIGHT as you start to pull the BACK wheel off the ground.....you compress the tire slightly and get a BOUNCE out of it. There is another step in it in other words. I have watched people do this......but can't figure it out yet.

Whew.....what a bunch of BS huh?
