ah one more thing, what you saw us doing during the sessions are years and years and years of practice, trial and error, semplangs, blood, sweat and tears (not to mention a lot of broken hubs, bearings and misaligned rims). so don't fret if you're not getting it in a month, two months, half a year. i started learning how to bunnyhop watching bmx'ers near our place when i was 14. my first real 2 wheels off the ground (not even clearing anything) was a year later, and i was on a bmx, which is a whole lot easier to learn with.
sir help me sa pag buy ng new rimset ano po masuggest niyo na mura and matibay na pwede na panglaro?
I have my fears as well, especially when going full lean back on a bmx bike (manual) i can't even stay on the rear wheel like for 5 seconds because when i reach the balance point. But it really helps to start learning the bunnyhop on a bmx bike
The low seat helps in giving you space for the weight shift.
Maybe we should start scheduling the urban assault rides again hihihi
ok, to break things down... try these progressions. this regardless of the bike, sus, geo, wheel size. the principle is the same 'for all of them' - drop your a$$ by flexing your lower body... hips, knees and ankles as if your pumping with your legs and rise up. you are not aiming for a lift yet. just get used to the feeling of compression and popping up. repeat over and over 'a lot' literally. what your aiming for is to feel the pressure between your hands on the bars and feet and pedals. only proceed to the next once you feel this as it's important. - to initiate a lift, do the above, but this time use the pressure between your hands and feet to pivot on the front axle. at the exact moment that you've unweighted your rr wheel, twist the bars a bit. important thing is to maintain pedal contact by feeling the pressure on your feet. the closest analogy i have here is picking up something like a cup, bowl or glass by grasping the inside (not outside). you have to put pressure in the inside front and back in order to lift. hope this makes sense.
like i said earlier, there's a big difference between imitating a move and feeling how it is done in order to do it. simply looking at something does not let you see that there is actually both hand pressure and feet pressure that enables pivoting on the fr axle and lifts the rr wheel.
is there timing involved? yes. twist the bars ahead of time and you wont lift. twist the bars late and you wont lift. pop slowly and you loose the compression (even hardtails compress). pop too quickly and you go off the pedals. tbh, the word compression is a it misleading and the tagalog equivalent is more descriptive which is 'bwelo'
do the bars really have to be twisted? not really. you cab lift without twisting, but better get used to the sensation early on as you need wrist movement in bunny hop. also the lift becomes more pronounced and powerful so to speak with the twist.
btw, don't grab the brakes. not because it's dangerous but it's not a rr wheel lift but a fr wheel rock.

konablack, anthrax76,and all the people who help me on this thread. magandang balita after changing my rims and some Hub and headset bearing repairs, i tried practicing my front wheel and back wheel lift as what we do in our session. and this morning during our sunday ride goin to Grotto, bulacan. grabe i cleared all the gutters and even some stairs on the road with zero flat tires,and any mechanical problem, its good to know to manage my speed and timing it also helps when i absorb my drops properly, maraming salamat po sa inyong lahat guys.☺ key point here is to know your limitations and your current skill level and apply it to the obstacle, and sabi mo nga sir anthrax76 dehins mahalaga kung anong skill yung gagamitin basta mahalaga maclear mo ayus na yun.😊 ayun tuloy tuloy lang practice on improving my skills and ill take more milage on my bike and more hours lang at makukuha ko din yung gusto kong skill level.

xmayor thanks sir! well nakakatakot lang kapag umuulan and madulas mga gutters and stairs hehehe kalaban minsan mga lumot basta make sure lang na your ready on your bailing techniques hehehe para di grabe semplang.☺ damuhan is a good idea to practice.
simplej0ys swabe! try ko magpractice sa damuhan sa new manila hehehe
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.
Aug 9, 2019 11:35:30 GMT 8
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.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
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.

konablack: gamit ko two-piece raincoat, dehins lang sya ideal kung may backpack ka
Aug 13, 2019 7:39:14 GMT 8
oniechan: altered poncho..dahil ng backpack..bawas ng haba sa likod at sa side..mas malamig compared sa 2-pc na raincoat....
Aug 13, 2019 11:27:45 GMT 8
anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.
Aug 15, 2019 23:44:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
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.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.

corollafreak: wassup!!! long time no hear dito =D
Aug 27, 2019 15:06:23 GMT 8
stealthwanderer: Hello! Meron bang pumapasok around Greenhills? If so, saan kayo nagpapark ng bike?
Aug 27, 2019 17:54:27 GMT 8
anthrax76: @cf!!! uy kumusta na?
Aug 28, 2019 0:01:25 GMT 8
anthrax76: stealthwanderer, dati may parking ang bikes dun from firefly brigade, sa parking sa harap. pero ginawa na yata yun so dehins ko alam kung saan nalipat. try ko magtanong minsan kapag napasyal ako.
Aug 28, 2019 0:02:48 GMT 8
konablack: wala na yung parking spot ng firefly brigade doon
