"C" of course, but sometimes it depends on my mood. There are instances where I'd like to take it easy and do "A" -- particularly on days when I have those cynical "why-even-bother" thoughts eating me up.
Comfort destroys usefulness. Luxury makes monsters. Adversity creates heroes.
pretty much a combination of A and C and depends on what kind of bump is being hit and much depends on whatever is left of me. Though I'm leading more to A since it can save energy.
For C, unassisted hops take a lot of energy from the rider given that its a complex movement that's timed precisely. assisted hops (aka bump jumps) are easier to do since you rely on the obstacle to bring your rear up instead of your upper body pulling it. Some guys have this skill inborn, which makes it a bit easier to learn, but some don't and takes years to learn (like me). TBH, even after 3 years of practcing this, I still can't get it consistently.
For A, again still depending on bump, simply pumping it will help gain speed on the other side - much easier and less taxing to the body. Pumping when timed correctly still got style points even if its just a single bump Contrary to C, if this is done incorrectly, not much harm is done apart from the funny feeling you get across your body.
BTW, both A and C can be done without accelerating.
I never really did that manual prior to the hop. I've always thought that I would jump with both wheels at the same time until somebody caught me on video and saw that my front wheel lifts first a few moments before the rear.
Anyway, my approach is that if you can clear it, it wouldn't matter if it's a J-hop or bunny hop, as long as you can clear the obstacle, it's good.
stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.

anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.

lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.

anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.
