Video: How to Bunny Hop 180 with Duncan Shaw
May 6, 2019 at 4:37
This week, we have one of my favourite tricks out there. It is not the hardest in the world but a good one to learn nonetheless, especially if you want to introduce some more style into your riding.

Try this after a ride, at the pub, after 5 pints of Stella Artois, while riding a long, heavy enduro bike. I just did, now i need a new helmet. Idiot.

Karma ... for drinking Stella.
Hope you’re alright though.

Drink General Majster PA and you will not need helmet...

Note that the 180 is started by slightly turning out of it before you turn into the direction you want to 180 in. shure you can probably do it without the little counter steer if you want to...but it helps gets your spin started. not shure why he does not mention this, probably a result of doing this so many times its just subconcious

Has anyone here mastered this trick with a modern trailbike (or similar)? I find it really hard on my long mtb while it was much easier with my old dirt/slopestyle bike. It is no surprise since longer bikes probably need more rider input and strength to maneuver but any useful tips would be appreciated.

I find it easier when you use the "pop" of the bike by bunny hoping the two wheels at the same time, instead of doing a regular bunny hop.

You really have to get your weight back with a longer bike. Over emphasize getting that initial "jhop" higher to take up shock preload and think about getting further over the axle before you pop the 180. It's a really slight motion on a 20, just exaggerate it for a long squisher.
(May 11, 2019 at 14:26)
is spot on. You just pull harder and hop harder (not really higher because the energy doesn't transfer into most height than a lighter/stiffer bike) and every motion is exaggerated. Try it off a curb into grass (helps psychologically) so you have some extra height and you are forced to get your timing down.
if you do it that way, it's kinda a cheater method. It works on the street but it doesn't really translate to anything else because you aren't hopping, so your stability doesn't stay maintained. If you try it this way off a drop, there's a higher chance you;; catch wheels or land off center, IMO

I can do it on my wife's bike (about 25% still on the slide out) but she has a size s Trance. I can get pretty close on my Sentinel (L) to getting it backwards but not quite- have burped a few tires trying! Yeah- way harder than on the BMX taking it to the trail bike

: you must be a blast at parties
(May 13, 2019 at 8:05)
: I didn't know she babysits you.
(May 13, 2019 at 8:20)
: "Male / 10" at least you were honest lol
(May 13, 2019 at 12:14)
: if you're only on this site to be a troll, try being good at it.

"whatcha gotta do is, 1) bunny hop and land backwards 2) stylishly spin back around... any questions?" In all seriousness, Seth's Bike Hacks
probably has one of the better-taught versions for this trick. No surprise, he focuses on how to ride out of the fakie, and its assumed you've already mastered bunny hopping. Best advice? Be prepared to taco a rear wheel when you land 90-degrees in at speed. Good luck gents!

Love these how to’s to see the details of the techniques in slo-mo. Was a dirt jumper for 6 years, 10 meter gaps not an issue. Dicking about on the start ramp, tries 180 hop breaks ankle... always scrubbing the back wheel as I spin ????.
(May 11, 2019 at 0:24)
Yeah, I can do them, but as soon as I land backwards, I get wrecked. I think there comes a point where explanation won't help.
(May 11, 2019 at 0:32)
Just take the chain off Your bike, since You wont need to focus on pedaling backwards, it will be way more easy to keep the balance while You`re learning
(May 11, 2019 at 4:51)
Pedal up a small bank and the roll backwards down it. Learning to roll out it is way harder than actually learning a 180.

: It's really not about being a noob, I started bicycling when I was three, and did it most days until I was seventeen. I think people have unrealistic expectations, or you know, want to be Tony Hawk. I never really had the option to be honest, and looking back, I'm glad I'm not.
(May 11, 2019 at 8:43)
: i like trail riding.
(May 11, 2019 at 11:00)
: Yeah, I'm really not glad I'm not Tony Hawk, but now that I'm 30 it's a lot easier to take with the not falling from 40 feet and everything. I think I'd probably be totally toasted now if that happened once. You never know, I think people are a lot tougher than they realize. I even remember a school play where a normal looking woman, straight up jumped off like a 15 foot structure and barrell rolled as part of the play.
(May 11, 2019 at 14:28)
just practice roll outs and half cabs
(May 11, 2019 at 22:08)
: soapy breasts, good imagery ????
(May 11, 2019 at 10:29)
Thanks Duncan for a nicely thought out explanation of this move! Keep 'em coming, eh!
(May 12, 2019 at 10:27)
It's easy to do on a 20 pound bmx bike. I can do a static 180 bunny hop on a bmx. On my mountain bike not a chance.
(May 11, 2019 at 8:00)
I ordered myself a green FourPlay Team just like that last week. Can’t wait to try ????
(May 11, 2019 at 0:11)
Yep not working for me either
(May 11, 2019 at 1:56)
