I was wondering how do you bunny hop without your feet leaving the pedals?
You've got it backwards. How could you do it with your feet leaving the pedals?
Here is a video on the " How to"
I would turn the sound off and focus on the pics and instruction

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...
There easy to hop and they don't take much effort to do it.
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.
Poor bunnies, there must be a law against that
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.
That would be cool to make an crazy jumping bike with pneumatic shocks...
Like a pogo stick with wheels.
Seems like some shock systems people have are already along the lines dual pogo-stick action
