Eh, are you wanting to bunnyhop up it? Or down it?

If you bunnyhop up it and miss and one of your wheels hits, you'll get a flat tyre straight up. And possibly a dent in your sidewall.

If you can just bunnyhop a bottle don't try it.
To get over it just get a decent speed and ride off first, then when you feel confident bunnyhop off.

Oh right, well yeh just ride off the edge at a decent speed so you won't go down the stairs bumping but actually clear it, BTW make sure you pull your front end up haha.
Then when you get confident just pull up like you would flat. You won't hurt yourself too much down a 3 set unless you land on your face. - to be blunt.

Do it.

Just go fast, hop when you get to the top of the stairs, land.

Stairs are easy, I jump a 2 stair all the time on my way to school, while wearing a heavy bag. And I can't hop very high at all.

i already bent my side wall a little bit cause my tire wasn't inflated all the way due to a pinhole sized pop in the tire ;p but i cant even feel the dent while riding, only a little bit when i press the brakes. but now my tires are rock so its all good.

If your bunnyhopping down it, its easy. You can do a 4 set without even putting much effort into the hop. Enjoy and have fun.

to hop down a 3-set, you barely need to hop at all. just go fast and pull up a bit. gravity and momentum will do the rest. start on a two-set and work your way up.
