Yo just a sugestion for u two guys...u might wanna chec out the entire topic devoted to bunnyhoping...thoughtfully named "bunnyhop" that might answer ur question...other than that just find someone who knows how to ride and ask then to show u...unless u dont have the balls for that.

Hey all, let me help you out a bit. First thing you should do is practice pulling that front up as high as you can. You should pull it up high enough when it hits below your crotch. Here is an example: [img]http://www.bmxbasics.org/new/bunnyhop/rachelpull7.jpeg[/img]

Once you've got that down you need to practice pulling your back up off the ground (but keep the front down). Ride at a fair speed, lean back a bit then shift you weight forward and make your feet almost vertical on the pedals, push down on your bars, and push back on your pedals you'll use your calve muscles. This will bring your back tire off the ground, you'll get pretty low off the ground in the beginning but practice. Example: [img]http://www.bmxbasics.org/new/bunnyhop/rbhop6.jpeg[/img]
Now you put all that together to make the bunnyhop. Pull up high then shift forward push those pedals back and it should bring your back up higher. Just ask me if you need help with anything else, or if you need verifying with my explaination.[/img]

Haha, I figured you learned them by now, it was more for the other people who asked for help.

lame dogg
get yo front wheel up till yo about to fall off then push yo handlebars forward and hang yo ass over the seat as to kiss the rear wheel wit it and use your feet to grasp the pedals like glue but as you grow into bmx you will realise there is no right or wrong way to bust a move its all about self expressionism and trust me you will spend months and even years trying to accomplish a trick by doing it someone elses way and eventually realise the best way is yo way just keep trying, practice makes perfect bro
