This is a cool, behind-the-scenes, look at the bike and components used for the video.

Wait. How the blazes did he do all that without being clipped in?

The bike trials instruction videos I have watched say that you do a not clipped in bunny hop by pushing down with the feet then popping up the front while pushing forward and also
scraping your feet back, toes down.

I can't do it either. Bike trials is like 100x harder than moto trials.

Update on the crash in New Hampshire in Sept during the century ride.
The driver is accused of being high on 3 different drugs;

I was participating in that ride, and rode past the scene 5 minutes or so after it happened, still a little haunted by it.

I got the chance to ride a fat bike around the shop yesterday. It would be a fun bike to own. Anyone riding one. Myself I would like to get a Surly Krampus 29+. I might build a fat wheel for the front of my Karate Monkey, I will also add a Krampus fork.

Question

i never thought of it that way; that doesn't sound right to me at all.
in my mind bunny-hopping has way more to do with torquing the handlebars up and forward while concentrating on lifting the rear wheel. (i never had to think about the front; the front wheel comes along easily.)
that's one of the reasons we were always looking for the best way to mount grips; we'd torque them around so much if they didn't stick to the bars well.

being clipped in doesn't seem to help much as i never really seem to use the pedals to lift,.. but being clipped in helped keep the feet from slipping off the pedals, making for much more confidence initiating the move knowing that my pedals were going to remain under my feet. (pretty much the biggest reason i like being clipped on on an MTB in all cases anyway.)
doing it with flats on my dedicated Trialsin' bike or my regular trail ride was pretty much the same technique.


cheers!

I gave it a try this weekend. I think I managed to get the rear wheel a couple of inches off the ground... once.

Hmmm. I wonder what it could be.
