What bike are you riding?

It feels weird if I am off the BMX for awhile and go to bunnyhop something. I always feel out of place at first.

So you are saying it has good bunnyhopping geometry?

Speeking of hops to test a bike!! Anyone here ever gone from a real long chainstay to a really short one. I thought i was going to land on my head the first time i went over a gap on it. I must say my old bike and new one feel drastically different. The old one has a 16.5 chainstay and a narrow HT angle like 72 or 73 and a really low front end with an inverted neck. My new bike has a 13.25 CS and a 75 Headtube angle and i love it. Its just so different, i feel like im learning all over again sometimes but it pops so nice, i can almost do a hop whip but i can't get the bike back under me all the way yet. Anyone else gone from a real long chainstay to really short one???
