Aren't mountainbikes usually pretty difficult to bunny hop on due to weighT?
My original nickel plated Mongoose with Motomags weighed around 40lbs, and I could get it about two feet off the ground when I was twelve. My MTB is in the mid 20's.

Want to rephrase your question?

no....they are easy to bunny hop especially with suspension --- you kind of make your self heavier (pre-load it) then when you pull the front up and shift forward it will "unload" and give a lil more upward lift.

it is a learned skill.... and takes practice...

If done right clipless pedals won't make a difference. When I was a kid I rode a few different BMX bikes and then moved to a mountain bike. All had just plain old platform pedals. I could clear the hood of a car doing a bunny hop on my mountain bike. Never once had a foot come off the pedals. They came off many times doing other stupid stuff but never during a bunny hop.

There's not though. We should start a save the bunnies initiative. We will stop people from hopping on them. While were at it lets take care of Pop. He's suffered. Lord knows he's suffered.
