Note: I consider myself a beginner.
It seems that the components of the American Bunnyhop are KEY to a number of other manuevers in trials.
From watching that "Thinkbike" video tutorial, it looks like the American bunnyhop is:
1. A quick manual; followed by
2. a leap or hop (from the rear wheel)
This 'leaping from the rear wheel while rolling' seems to be a foundational skill for a lot of moves. (Up to Front and Hooking to name a couple).
The American bunnyhop has proven difficult for me to this point. I haven't been able to find that point on the rear wheel from which to leap... But, I shall keep at it...
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Is my perspective on the manuever correct or ?
