I agree. Good thinking Rowan

I was calculating percentages to find trends and it seemed that 51%
hopped to the side with their pedal back and 51% also hopped to the
side with their pedal forward and it was immensely confusing

Anyway, one clear trend is that 65% hop to their left and 38% to their
right. At first I was surprised but I suppose its because most find it
easier to hop to their open side (away from the hand they hold the
saddle with) and more people are right-handed, so hop to their left

I hop to the left with my right hand and left foot back, I was very
surprised to see how many others are too

There is nothing wrong with old threads eh? Especially in the case of
polls where over time as more people make their votes different trends
can be observed. If you haven't voted yet, feel free to add your
preference to the stats even though my poll is gathering dust.

No. Does it matter?

I'm all for generalisations and such but I don't think saying that
-*everyone*- is too busy adding up the percentages is fair. As it was
me who brought this up I accept full responsibilty for my actions and
don't want to drag anyone else down with me

I was thinking about this after my last post on this thread, and I
realised that the reason the percentages do not add up is because I
stupidly changed the poll to multiple choice just before posting it,
even though I had covered almost all possible combinations which all
exclude each other. So if someone voted for both jumping to the left
and to the right then they have skewed the percentages by not choosing
the ambidextrous option. Sorry about that- at least I know more about
the multi choice thingy now. Maybe those who are ambidextrous in which
side they hop to have a preference as to which foot is back or
something.

Except that I already voted, way back when, and chose 'can't do it
enough to know.'

Oh I see so does that mean that if someone votes twice it counts two
votes but only one voter? Or am I way off track...

I added up 112.22%.


I didn't vote, because I cant hop yet (w/o holding onto something), but
would like to eventually like to get into some trials. I thought I
read a poll on this like, about six months ago. In there several
people were stating benefits of being ambidextrous w/ hopping, so this
is my goal.

Right now I am much better riding SIF and "hopping" w/ my right hand.
While holding onto something and hopping, I prefer to have my opposite
foot back as my holding hand while SIF, and SI I preffer to hop w/ the
same foot back as my holding hand.

Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere. If you can ride where you
are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the
time do it along the way.
Parafrasing a pro skater when asked for advise to kids who wanted to
get much better and maybee turn pro one day.
