k first off no ones going to get mad at u for posting on a forum and second "pinching" the seat is done by alot of people like ryan nyquist for example, but some people cant pinch so they do without it. its different between people. whatever feels best

pinching the seat:

lots of pros do it, lately I've seen alot of vids and people aren't. I think it's just personal preference and ability. Again people like Ryan Nyquist and Dave Mirra use the seat pinching technique. The guys that don't pinch, seem to spin their bars really fast. They lean back enough to make most of their weight over the rear tire.

hope that helps.

Exact situation I'm in haha. I can't pinch my seat at all, I've got it slammed so it comes 2/3rds of the way up my shins.

yeah i dont pinch my seat and im 6'2'' and it seems to work out fine for me. How i learned how to do it was dont fully bunnyhop to just a little level hop off the ground and follow the bars with the back of the throwing hand it works wonders for me
