Just making sure, to get the back wheel up do you flip the pedals vertical and pull or push the handlebars forwards. I'm having trouble getting the back wheel up.

Pull up on your bars towards your chest, while you pull up, tilt your toes downard towards the ground and kick your legs up, also kick back a little bit with your legs, but mostly upwards

just make sure when you pull your legs and hands up, at the height of your jump, where your bars are as high as they get, push em forward a bit.

hope this made sense..

well my bike feels like at least 60 lbs never really weighed it be4. its a standard leanthy frame which is pretty deisle. when u ride on a heavy bike ur pushin urself harder for tricks and if u can get good on it u should be good on nething.

I have a 32lb bike, I weigh 138lb it's OK for me, I'm 14.

Try doing some weight training, I'm starting it soon.
You just need to practise dude. I learned to bunnyhop when I was about 12 on this fake kiddies-type BMX £30 down the carboot:D
It must have weighed a ton but I managed it after practising loads.

Dave Mirra did a double backflip on a 35+ pound bike back in the day.
Weight is all about personal preference. I can't ride a bike that's under 25 pounds.

But anyways.

I weigh 77 and I'm about 182 tall, my bike weighs from 26-29 pounds and I do good.

Hey man don't worry. A bike isn't too heavy to bunnyhop with, I'm riding a bike that weighs around 37,47 lbs, and I thought that weight was a huge factor in bunny hopping, but I've manged to get 1,60 feet up in the air. So It's just all about pratice pratice pratice. And when you've gotten better you should just buy a lighter bike and go even higher :D
