Now i know you've heard this before but i cant find any because all posts about his are buried in other posts and a swirling vortex that cant be escaped. So, on that note, how can you bunnyhop higher? I know its practice but it seems i got higher really quick then all of a sudden i stopped and progress is done. i can hop like 10 inches tops maybe less, what can i do to speed it up? will hopping onto things speed it up instead of over things or flat?

1. Weight back...as if you're doing a manual
2. Pull up with your arms and push down with your legs to lift the front up (see, the bike is like a lever)
3. The back wheel won't come up much (if at all) farther than the front wheel does, so focus on getting the front wheel up for a little bit, then the next step is getting the rear wheel up.
4. Push the bars forward and tuck your legs up to unweight the pedals...this levels out the bike.
5. Land.

The answer to your question is that having an obstacle to focus on getting over helps A LOT....in fact, I'd say it's the BEST method to get higher bunnyhops...it helps so much. It doesn't really matter if you're jumping over or onto something...both ways are great for getting the right form, timing, and more height.

If you have a bike pump that stands, lift up the handle to about as high as you think you can jump. If you tip it over you wont crash. I use my pump all the time to see how high I can jump and I get over handlebars.

Yes, the trick is to have some kind of obstacle to jump over. It will help you jump higher because you may think you can't do it but you actually can. It also gives you an idea of how high you can jump as well.

i have a fear of jumping off shit..i feel like my front tire is going to go straight in the ground and imma flip over the handlebars, probably because of that happening to me twice at a young age.
