What! you've never managed a "bunny hop" before??? BMX riding for kids 101 (no clipless pedals required)....have been doing these cheap stunts for years. I can still do one on my road bike...but wouldn't make it a habbit
I grew up in the dragstar era.
At 44, 10 kgs over weight and with only straps and trying a bunny hop I can picture myself on the local news being loaded into an ambulance with an 'eye witness' being interviewed, "Yeah, I saw th whole thing. He thought he was 15 again, riding a BMX, mind you BMX weren't around then but a man can dream. Anyhow, he came to the railway line and tried to bunny hop. It all came unstuck when his foot popped out of the strap, you see he wasn't wearing clipless, and it his bike just went down under him and took out the four guys behind him."
