Front wheel hop

Lifting the front tire can be necessary to go over an obstacle too large to just roll over. It isn’t a common move on trails. You may have to hop your front tire over a tree trunk or a single large step. The move is almost the same as rolling over a small step.

To start, try the move with a small object lying on the floor – you must be able to lift your front wheel at least half a wheel high. Then try curbs
