I've done some hops higher then my bars height......haven't measured really though

My best was bar height on a 96 Dyno that weighed 45 lbs.

So back then, roughly 36 inches.

Now, not so much.

I don't understand how do you get to about the 30 like fuck? Like today I tryed and I only made it 18 inches twice I think if I had a bar I could make it to 20 but 30 fucking how? I Picked up as high as fucking possible to make it 18 inches

Keep pulling up past vertical so you "pop"

I feel you. Sometimes, I feel like I cant even jump decently w/o my bike.


But, for me:
Hop 20
Up 28

Like a year and a half ago on my first real bike I hopped over 40 inches of boxes. Highest hop I ever got. Tried 46 but kept barely clipping it. Had videos of it but lost them when my hard drive died. Now I can't get nearly as high lol.

I can hop around stem height. But after not practicing for a while, I usually get real sketchy.

Wow, I just tried earlier and got only tire height and around there. It's been like this for over a month. This sucks.. I lose the ability sometimes when I over practice.

On trails my bike with a 13.75 chainstay my highest hop was 3ft
On my street bike with a 13.2 chainstay my highest hop was 2.5ft

Pisses me off because I need my hops higher for riding street but its my trails bike that I can hop the highest on.
F.M.L

Anyone know why this is?

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

idk how true this is but I've heard that since the bike is longer it means you can get it higher before you leave the ground and therefore you can hop higher aswell.
