You are too far over the handlebars, perhaps?

Oops. Strike that last one. Your feet are not even; right foot is far higher than your left.

Hi Kyle, you are essentially right on both counts. At this instant my body should be accelerating upwards so I can unweight the bike and float the rear up to the ledge. My weight is too far forward – I am absorbing the lip of the ledge with my body instead of using the ledge to push my body up. My torso should be close to vertical. Also, it will be easier to explode upwards if my pedals are level.
