Finally, i can bunny hop :)
#1
At long bloody last, after 26 years of being able to ride a bike, i can finally bunny hop ;D  I've been messing around riding home from work the past couple of days trying to put Mike the bike's theory's into practice and i got it by accident jumping off a curb. Just been riding up and down my road like a kid with his first bike Smile  I'm so excited i might go back to flats as well. No actually i might still get the Greg Minnar 5:10's so i can use both with the same shoe. But do i risk doing the KT ride on Sunday with flats......??

Woo Hoo! Practice makes perfect and stoked IMB had a little part to play in it! I need to practice these more, maybe I'll make that my goal for the weekend!

If anyone sees a pair of second hand 5:10's in size 10 for sale anywhere please let me know as i really want to try them now, but can't afford to buy new Sad  I might try my £100 Asics trainers with the V8's for a little street session tomorrow evening but there is no way i would wear them off road.

If you think you can squeeze into some size 9.5 you can borrow mine next time we ride, i've got some old shimano's i can use for a ride.

I can manage about 5-6" now which in theory is easily enough to get up most curbs but I still havent plucked up the courage to try heh. It does wind me right up when my friend for example just casually hops up onto a foot or higher wall with seemingly no effort!
