How do you get your whole bike in the air when you hit a jump?

there are 3 steps to jumping on a bmx bike: 1) compress- put your weight over the handlebars 2) quickly lean back over your seat 3) after doing this, your front wheel will lift off of the ground. to lift the back wheel up, scoop your opposite foot out and up in a "j" motion while your front wheel is… in the air once you are able to get both wheels in the air, continue practicing and eventually your bunny hops will become higher and higher (MORE)
you should have a race bike to jump high. to jump correctly you have to be in the attack position before you jump. the attack position is where you stand up on the bike, knees slightly bent, standing with your butt twards the back of the bike, elbows bent and looking always in front of you. never at… the ground. when you are coming twards the jump give it a handful of gas ( still in the attack position until you land) when your in the air grip the bike with your knees to avoid wiping out. when you land make sure your standing and land with a bit of gas to even the bike out.

on the face of the jump you want to throw your bars the way you want your bike to lay over toward. doing this right before the front tire leaves the jump is key. its all one flow, your bike will come around on its own and just stay up front.. start small and work to bigger scrubs!
cruise until you get up to the jump and when you hit the very end of the jump gunn it
It's impossible to put a name to that. It wouldn't have taken longafter the invention of the bicycle until someone decided todeliberately ride it over a bump in the road to see what wouldhappen. If they liked the results, it's then an easy thing to startto "improve" the bump, and the the bicycle jum…p is invented. (MORE)
the type of bike doesn't make you jump better, and there are allot of good DJ bikes. If you want to learn BMX-style tricks and you're from an MTB background, get a Faction Zeitgeist - 22" wheels make it so much easier! Wow I don't like the look of a 22" bmx, As the person above was saying "If y…ou want to learn BMX-style tricks and you're from an MTB background" That's what dirt jumps bikes do not 22" bmx's when you will have to search all over for spares. I think you should check your budget, there are a lot of good bikes out there nowadays and also you should see if you prefer a 24" DJ bike or a 26" DJ bike. Ride a few bikes, see what you like best, definitely don't dismiss a 22" especially if advised to do so by someone who's never actually ridden one! (oh and you get 22" tires off the internet like everyone else gets their 20, 22, 24 and 26's). (MORE)
The longest dirt bike jump was by the rider is Trigger Gumm and he successfully jumped a 277.5 feet is the coolest person ever\n. \nActually, that was correct until Jan 1, 2008 when Robbie Madison successfully jumped his way into the Guiness Book with a jump of 322 feet 7 inches.
There's no definite answer to this, as it will eventually be a matter of preference. Might as well ask if waffles are better than pancakes.
you pull up on the top of the ramp ! and keep straight at the drop!
as your approaching the jump you want to gain as much momentum as possible when you at the lip of the jump lift front tire up then back tire then hope you land
transition, ns, blk mrkt, specialized, norco, There's a lot of good up coming brands which are coming out of nowhere nowadays. All the above are good makes and there are lots more, the best place to look about bikes is Pinkbike.com
well really you cant if it wont start or someing chick the filter or the plug chick might be dirty
322 feet 7 inches\nJan 1 2008, Robbie Madison (a freestyle motocross rider from Kiama, Australia) set a world record by jumping and landing the longest motorcycle jump in history -- live with a distance of 322 feet 7 inches. "I am dedicating the night to Evel Knievel." Maddison declares. "I have alw…ays looked up to him, just like everybody else who rides motorcycles has. He was my inspiration." (MORE)
Well, first you want to get a dirt bike and start it. Then you find a hump or something that will suit as a ramp (don't jump on on that is to much for you or to big for you, you can fall easily). Get a good amount of speed and as soon as you are in the air lean back and jerk the handlebars up and th…en come down for a safe landing (hopefully). Don't try this if you are incapable or you feel uncomfortable with it. You'll be much better off alive. (MORE)
Trail bike is too vague, you have to specify which bike and how big jumps you're talking about.
There are two ways to bunnyhop a bicycle:. Start by pulling a wheelie, then push handlebar forward while simultaneously unloading your feet. That should bring the rear wheel up too. . (works best with clipless pedals) stand up, push down on the pedals to compress the tires. At max compression laun…ch yourself upwards while still holding on to the bike. As the tires bounce back you'll get some help in pulling the bike with you into the air. (MORE)
Yamaha makes the most reliable bikes so i would go with a yz250f or a yz125 depending on how big you are.
Yes. Increasing your vertical jump takes a lot of time. You have to have good strength, flexibility, speed, and genetics to have a good vertical leap. You can build strength by doing basic excercises such as squats,lunges,calf raises, or leg extensions(you need a machine to do these) Once you build …up your strength, start working on your speed. Do plyometrics to increase your speed. Pylometric excersises help to build expolision in your jump, which gets you higher in the air. Any type of excercise is very demanding on your body, so make sure you don't push yourself too hard, or you will get injurred. Take it easy and build yourself up to harder excercises. Make sure you eat plenty of protein and vitamins. Also, you HAVE TO STRETCH before and after you excercise. You are severely damaging your muscules if you don't stretch. Stretching builds elasticity in your muscles, and this helps increase your vertical. You can go to youtube and look at different excersises you can do to help your jump. Pace yourself and don't get discouraged. Good luck =) Please visit the website: improvingyourverticaljump.webs.com It really helps a lot. Thanks (MORE)
it was on the show new year no limits where robbie maddison jumped 321' on a dirt bike.
Depends on why it's jumping. It might jump because chain and sprockets are too worn, it might jump because chain tension is too low, or if its a bike with external gears it might jump because the gears aren't adjusted properly. Have a look at www.parktool.com, www.sheldonbrown.com or www.biketutor.c…om and read more. (MORE)
Nope! My cousin has a 7 foot ramp that we take bikes off of into his pond! just make sure you throw away the bike before u land in the water... Well, it certainly can. Bikes are fairly well sealed against rain, but if it goes all under water can make its way into the bearings and the frame/fork tub…es and get them to rust. Most bikes survive a dunking, but if you want to treat it right you need to pull it apart for a relube. (MORE)
Any bike can be jumped but the landing is the hard part. In your case I wouldn't try it unless you have a death wish!
There's no telling. The BMX is probably smaller, so it should be lighter. OTOH they're often amazingly chunkily built and can be surprisingly heavy.
any age really. you have to have the land to make one though so if you do then it's all good.But if your still young obviously don't go for like Travis Pastrana type stuff:]
No. Not unless there is signs posted stating that No Bikes, Skate boards, or Roller Skates.
Too little info, too many options. have a look at www-bicycletutor.com, www.parktool.com or www.sheldonbrown.com for help.
Isn't clear if you're asking about how to build a jump, or how to get the bike to jump.. To get the bike to jump the basics is to ride it over the jump and as you hit the top brace your legs.. To build a jump depends on what you're trying to build it off. Planks and boards can be a bit tricky, as …the bike can hit with quite a lot of force. sand, soil and dirt is more idiot-proof. Make a pile, stamp the ride surface down, ride over it and figure out what to change.. Do note that jumping bikes carries a risk. Some bikes aren't up to it, some jumps aren't up to it and some riders aren't up to it. If any of this applies to you you can get hurt. At the least, wear a helmet. (MORE)
if you are doing simple little jumps, the light bikes of today make it easier, but it still takes patience and practice. if you want to be an x fighter rider that would take a lot of skill and years of practice. . http://www.dirtbikefanatic.com/dirt-jumping-bikes.html
In Pokemon ruby, sapphire and emerald you can make your bike jump by holding B. you will then bunnyhop. In diamond, pearl and platinum you can only jump when there are special ramps like in wayward cave. You can't jump in red, blue, yellow, gold, silver or crystal though.
you can't, you have to use the acro bike. that's why they have two bikes; one goes really fast, and the other is kinda slow but does tricks
great brands for jump bikes are dunlop, repco, raleigh, huffy but mongoose are also pretty good, so are diamondback, if i were you i would stay away from specialized and giant as all their frames crack
Yes, no, maybe. All MTBs are expected to be able to stand up to some jumps, but not all MTBs are expected to take all jumps. A heavy rider + large drop + XC, or department-store bike is likely to break something - anything from a pinch flat due to bottoming out, folding a wheel, or structural failue…r of frame, fork or components (MORE)
.....you didn't bother reading the bike manual in the store, did you? It's simple. just press b and the d-pad at the same time. press the d-pad in the direction you want to jump.
Don't really know what you mean by a jump bike... Generally speaking a MTB is intended to be fairly versatile, and it will usually have gears enough both for slow slogs uphill, for going along the flat, and for powering downhill. Something like a dirt bike is usually adapted to run in pretty much on…e condition only, so taking it on a longer trail with both uphills and descents is likely to be heavy going. (MORE)

An air bike is a kind of stationary bike, which makes the whole question moot. For any stationary bike what you want to look for is a decent riding position, a smooth power train with easily adjustable resistance and a reasonably quiet operation.
DH bikes are regularly jumped on during DH runs, for which they work just fine. But if you want to do jumps on the flat you'll have to work really hard to get a heavy DH bike up to speed.
Press X & Up or down at the same time and it will jump on the rails :)
On the stage with the four platforms. Jumpfrom the high point of platform four onto the first platform while using a boost.
MTBs are built to take rough riding, running across bumpy ground etc. Jump hard enough and the wheels run a risk of getting damaged, but the tires should be good for a lot of abuse.
I've owned a 2010 Diamondback Bandito now for nearly 2 years. I've had to change a few components that have broken but all from faults of my own when performing maintenance and generally bad riding! lol Anyway it's definitely an amazing bike for the price even if the frame is a bit heavy however whe…n they say it's bombproof, they mean it! Hope this helps :) (MORE)
Without going into detail, the reason the knee "jumps" when the doctor hits it is because of a reflex.
To some extent, certainly. A freeride bike probably have a wider gearing range, making it better if you have to go uphill, and a also probably full suspension, making it better at taking obstacles at speed. Dirt bikes are often rigid frames and single-speeds.
Depends on what type of riding you want to do. For BMX-type stunts - get a BMX. For going some serious distances both on and off-road - get a MTB. Don't really know what you mean by jump bike.
Just be patient I've only ever got 1 after 2 or 3 weeks of light bike. I also have heard that different bike bodies help get u different power-ups but not sure.
On the Acro Bike, press B and the arrow on the D-Pad you want to move in. It may take some practice to master.
Most hyper bmx bikes are heavy so most likely not unless your not jumping high
they are more stunt bikes but if you want to do more jumping on and of you should b uy a trial bike
A jump bike is more suited toward jumps, tricks and fancy riding. A regular bike is not suited toward these types of activities but mostly for normal riding.
Some benefits of having jump bikes are that jump bikes are more capable of navigating through rougher mountain terrain, and being able to add several additions to one's bike like a pro hydraulic gyro.
