who gets HIGHER

i ride a unicycle and my friend does some bmx and he insists that a bmx bike rider or trials rider can jump much higher than any unicyclist but im not convinced. what can get the highest hop?

You´re kidding right?

BMXs and Trials bikes can jump MUCH higher than unicycles.

Trials bikes can sidehop max… around 57"
" " " " " " " " " " rolling hop to tyre around 60" and above.
" " " " " " " " " " front wheel hook 70"ish
" " " " " " " " " " " sidehop to pedal rather high… 60" and higher…

BMXs can bunnyhop stupidly high too…

unis just can´t match it, i thought it´d be obvious… seeing as bikes can go so much faster, and more of your power can be transferred through a bike when jumping.

I agree totaly with sponge, just go on youtube, you’ll see plenty of bike trials vids, you really can’t match the side hop of a trials bike, even if you tuck the back wheel up under your bum on your uni.

Watch this movie and try to tell me that a uni can get that high to rubber.

Ryan atkins’ record(doing his very best) 98cm sidehop over a bar, Ryan leech can get 101cm on any average day. And thats not to say that atkins isnt an amazing rider…hes still me hero.

wow i guess i need to do some filming, you might change your mind.

didnt ryan atkins do something like 104 cm onto a ledge? but still the trials bikes can get way higher then unicycles.

his record is 107cm onto a ledge(wall)

Thats cause bikes have the momentum factor. Mass = length x width .
There just isn’t enough mass on a unicycle.
Yet it shouldn’t deter people from trying :slight_smile:

isn’t it mass=weight/volume? length x width = area.

Yeah it is right. I’m a genius! Actually I forgot the exact formula it’s been so long since I took a math class. :stuck_out_tongue:

I agree of corse bike can roll hop higher as they travel faster,
but hopping up onto ledges they always front wheel hook so that would be equiveled to a unicyclist doing a seat grap on the ledge :wink:

by seat grab do you mean hooking your seat handle on a ledge?

if you can figure out a way to get to rubber from there, it would be impressive, but it would look bad, and you still couldnt hop as high.

^
and your seat would be destroyed within like 5 “seat grabs”

if your seat was SUPER low it would be possible

snoop dogg gets higher

true true

but you wouldnt even be able to hop higher than sif to a pedal grab…

In his last story he told he landed a 109 cm hop.
That’s what I tought, I’m going to look it up.

EDIT: found it :Most Intense Ride EVER
